Iron Mike’s ‘Swamp Stomp’ Added To AirPlayDirect Roster
Florida based, slide guitar rocker, Iron Mike Norton, releases his latest LP, Swamp Stomp to international radio through a non-exclusive partnership with AirPlay Direct.
The addition of AirPlay Direct to Iron Mike's growing list of global radio distribution partners, marks a new milestone, making Swamp Stomp, the most broadly distributed album of Iron Mike's career, thus far.
Swamp Stomp, is the latest release the man dubbed "the king of swamp stomp"; a style he says came from years of playing both the Florida swamp rock scene, and the Mississippi hill-country sound he picked up during his time as one of the host bands at actor, Morgan Freeman's venue, Ground Zero Blues Club, in Clarksdale, MS. The album features 10 digitally remastered tracks from tracks from Iron Mikes three previously released alums, as well as three unreleased tracks: Mamie, a long time staple of Iron Mike's live performances. Dead Man's Stomp, a song about Florida's infamous death row, and Rainmaker, a tribute to Iron Mike's mentor, slide guitar legend Sonny Landreth.
