Track Review: The Big Sea, Unlimited // Mike Nisbet

Hailing from Scotland, although he is now residing in London, Mike Nisbet is a singer-songwriter with a unique sound. Known for his insightful lyricism atop moving melodies, Mike has received critical acclaim from several publications. Featured on The Other Side Reviews, Americana UK, Right Chord Music, Amazing Radio, iHeart and many others, this innovative artist is reaching audiences on a global scale. We are honoured to introduce Mike Nisbet with his single ‘The Big Sea, Unlimited’.



Lying somewhere between Tom Odell and Harry Connick Jr., Mike Nisbet harmonically blends smooth vocals with a heartbreaking melody. Acoustic-inspired, ‘The Big Sea, Unlimited’ is a simplistic piano-driven track with some real attitude. Merging classical with a casual jazz piano design, Mike brings a blues vibe to what could be a plain single.

Touching on issues of addiction and challenging relationships, ‘The Big Sea, Unlimited’ is a sonic exploration of the human spirit’s fragility. Using the barebones structure with melancholic vocals, one can feel the pain behind the lyricism. Yet, while there is melancholy in the reflective lyrics, Mike’s rich vocals leave a lingering sense of empowerment. What I find particularly endearing is the incorporation of female vocals triggering a haunting quality.

Overall, I enjoy this tender tune. Soul-stirring and provocative, Mike Nisbet’s ‘The Big Sea, Unlimited’ can easily ensnare your senses leaving you dumbstruck.
