Esoteric is that which is understood by a select few who have been initiated in a field of rare or unusual interest. Luckily for you, there's a Big Guy in town who is going to take you on an esoteric journey through both music and a bunch of other big ideas and words.

Here at SRM we are much too busy reveling in The Black Atlas' sound to explore esoteric thought. We've left that to him and, baby, does he ever come up with some interesting thoughts and sounds.

Mike Evin: "Have I Ever Loved?" (Official Video)
From Fifth Studio Album "Life As A Lover"

With great excitement I release the video for my first single "Have I Ever Loved?" off my fifth studio album "Life As A Lover"!

It's an ode to finding new love and learning to live with loves past. The video itself centers around visits with old folks in their unique surroundings, letting each personality sculpt every segment. I shared intimate moments letting the song breathe life as each member interacts in their own way.

The upcoming album, "Life As A Lover" was tastefully produced by JUNO-nominated Howie Beck (Feist, Walk Off the Earth, Hannah Georgas) in my current home town of Toronto. It is set to arrive later in 2015.

Spare Parts stars George Lopez, Marisa Tomei, Jamie Lee Curtis, and Carlos Vega (Big Time Rush), and tells an inspirational story of four Phoenix-based illegal alien high school students competing in a high level NASA-sponsored national competition for underwater robotics.

"Mateo's music packs a huge emotional punch," says Spare Parts producer Ben O'dell. "His songs are both epic and very intimate at the same time and they are infected with a kind Latino vibe without losing their rock and roll roots. We couldn't be prouder to have three original tracks from him in our film."
