He grew up in Buffalo, N.Y. and is proud to have lived in Boston and New York City before settling in Baltimore. He and his brother saw Phillip Seymour Hoffman play Willy Loman in Mike Nichols' "Death of a Salesman" on Broadway in April 2012 and it was the greatest artistic anything—play, movie, show—he ever saw.

Mike Nelson is technically an adult. Mike runs Mostly America, a music blog that only gets traffic for philosophical posts that have nothing to do with music. Still, he goes to more concerts than most college students and has a knack for identifying the next big things, so you should go check some of his Top Songs of the Year lists, which he has been doing since 2011. One time he tried to eat one of every item in his office’s vending machine. And like most things for Mike, the emphasis is on “tried.”
