MIGHTY was conceived after Fiaretti, now age 20, dropped out of school when he was 16 choosing instead to spend his days immersed in the local DIY punk and indie scenes. In the cold, dim basements of office buildings and neighborhood garages, and in community-run art galleries, Fiaretti found his voice and MIGHTY was created. In 2013, Fiaretti moved to Atlanta looking for a fresh perspective and new collaborators. It was there that the young songwriter connected with Daniel Gleason (Grouplove, All Get Out) who would help bring MIGHTY from raw, mangled scrawls to refined underdog anthems.
The debut MIGHTY EP “Bye, Have Nice!” simultaneously embraces classic influences (Dylan, Cobain, Page & Plant) and forges new territory for the Pittsburgher. The 5 tracks were recorded over the course of an impetuous 5 days on a shoestring budget entirely in Fiaretti’s kitchen (jokingly referred to as Ant Hill Studios, for a serious infestation). The debut EP is rounded out by Gordon Keiter (All Get Out) on drums, Gleason on bass, guitar and keys, and CJ Ridings (Big Jesus) on bass, guitar, and keys. Gleason also served as producer, with Ridings engineering and mixing. “Bye, Have Nice!” is scheduled for a November 6th digital release, with a late winter vinyl release to follow.
If there’s anything that is sure about this skuzzy, endearingly messy, burgeoning artist, it’s that his power is in his vulnerability. Fresh into his 20s, Fiaretti still has many mistakes to make, but if “Bye, Have Nice!” is any indication, expect to hear about them in the most honest voice he can find.
