Austin’s Pocket Sounds is the solo project of singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and arranger Mike St Clair. Listen as he describes how hearing Dionne Warwick’s version of the Burt Bacharach/Hal David classic “Do You Know the Way to San Jose”  at a kiddie pool party inspired him to meld the classical, jazz, pop and rock parts of himself, and influenced his new song “Radio Song.”

Pocket Sounds will be celebrating the release of a cassette single containing radio song at the Mohawk this Saturday May 4th at Mohawk.
