Michael Mewborne is the frontman, heart and soul of BORNE. With a fresh, self-titled album, BORNE is again subtly seducing southern California with its uniquely memorable pop/rock sound. Mewborne demonstrates more of his substantive vocal ability in his second release from indie label SEP Records. The broad influences of the band members have combined to create a unique pop sound that separates them from other artists in the same pop/rock genre.
BORNE has been busy this summer reinforcing their solid adult-contemporary album. This two-year-old quad from Los Angeles, CA, has been gigging constantly in the region. They have opened for Los Lobos, The Smithereens, Shawn Mullins and Brian VanDerark of the Verve Pipe. San Diego television recently aired a 30 minute special on their rise. Live recordings and studio cuts have been spun on various indie radio and internet stations throughout the U.S. and the UK. Their growing internet presence is also impressive. You can hear them on Yahoo's Music Engine, iTunes and CD Baby as well as their own site, www.borne-music.com and their myspace site www.myspace.com/borne.
Beyond that, lead singer Michael Mewborne recently co-produced a short film that has been collecting accolades throughout the festival circut. The film "The Receipt" won "Best Comedy" at the 2005 Los Angeles International Short Film Festival in September. It also won the audience choice for "Best Film" at the Breckenridge Film Festival in September. The film features a remix of Michael's song "I'm a Mess," from his debut album, Apart From Within.
