Mike Bay just released his debut EP under the Borrowed Sparks name, titled The Prettiest One Left. Getting to this point, however, was a test of the St. Louis native’s mettle, as Mike was met with an unforeseen challenge that, at one point, required him to rebuild the entire project from scratch.
Mike joins The Quinn Spinn today to tell his story of undying resolve. We also discuss the delicate balance between pursuing a creative endeavor and maintaining relationships with those closest to us.
Zoe Clark’s first ventures into songwriting functioned

an enlightening experience; one which dives into the depths of the human condition,
and which provides an insight into music – specifically, its importance as an emotional
