Song Spotlight: Mike Viola – “Everything Is Falling Into Place” 

WHILE LOOKING FOR this artist’s super-cool version of Mariah Carey’s “All I Want For Christmas Is You” I found the song that put him on my radar in the first place.

Mike Viola is ridiculously talented. He co-produced – along with Adam Schlesinger or Fountains of Wayne – the awesome title track for the awesome movie That Thing You Do! which won the Oscars for Best Original Song. He sang lead on that song, as well as the songs the character Jimmy sang in the movie.

Viola has also worked with Ryan Adams, Jenny Lewis, Brett Dennen, Andrew McMahon and a slew of others. I love his own work, and it all started with “Everything Is Falling Into Place”
