Sometimes world class talent can appear in the most unexpected places. That’s exactly what happened when Mike Massé and Jeff Hall were videoed playing in a local Pizzeria called “Pie Pizzeria” in Salt Lake City, USA.
The duo produced beautiful harmonies as they covered Simon and Garfunkel’s classic song “Sound of Silence”. Jeff’s harmonies make this performance extra special as he doesn’t miss a note. Mike is well known for his wonderful cover arrangements and this performance is simply world class.
Who Is Mike Massé?
Changing career is not uncommon for many people, but public defender to full-time musician is a bigger leap than most people would choose to make. Not Mike Massé, though! He started, as many budding musicians do nowadays, by creating his own YouTube channel.
Mike Massé performed exceptional covers and arrangements of famous songs covering everything from Heroes by David Bowie to Chasing Cars by Snow Patrol. Massé performs solo and with special guests like his bass player buddy Jeff Hall. Both his incredible voice and the quality of his arrangements mean his channel now has over 300,000 subscribers.
Who Is Jeff Hall?
The short answer to that question is, “an amazing musician”. When speaking with Jeff you instantly recognise you’re talking to a remarkable musician. His talents go much further than his delightful singing voice. His cover with Mike Masse of Africa has been described as the “best live version” of the song. Even Toto themselves acknowledged the recording saying, “You sing it better than we do”.
