Live from the 615: Borrowed Sparks and Stray Nova

Borrowed Sparks’ debut album, The Prettiest One Left, has been described as “a prime cut of American rock and roll.” The Nashville-based band will perform songs from the record, as well as some soon-to-be-released material.

Joining Borrowed Sparks will be Stray Nova, a Tennessee-based trio whose brand of rock and roll includes a hint of blues and mischief.

The Quinn Spinn: Mike Bay of Borrowed Sparks (Mar. 30, 2020)

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.


The Quinn’s Daily Spinn: Monday, March 30

It’s New Episode Release Day (N.E.R.D.), and today’s Quinn Spinn guest, Mike Bay of Borrowed Sparks, has a brand new EP that has been making the rounds.

Titled The Prettiest One Left, Borrowed Sparks’ debut release is a sampling of rock and roll as strong-willed and gutsy as the artist behind it. We’ve already given you a listen to opening track, “Man With a Different Name,” and the tender closing title track. Now, we look at the project as a whole.
