Mahogany Martin And A Hyundai: Michael Wohl On The Surprising Low-Rent Blues
"Before it was announced he was playing the Columbia City Blues Festival on August 16, the Seattle Weekly covered it. Still, it’s a surprise that the dude from classic rock revival band Mystery Ship has turned into a country blues phenom."
"Except he also plays an outstandingly voiced acoustic country folk blues like Mississippi John Hurt. And when I caught up with him on a sunny Sunday afternoon, he showed up in his girlfriend’s Hyundai. And he couldn’t stop talking about… the joys of Hyundais."
