Acclaimed New Orleans-based vibraphonist and percussionist Mike Dillon is working on a new album of Elliott Smith songs entitled Functioning Broke. The collection is planned for release in Spring 2016. The first single "Half Right" is available today for download and streaming.

Mike Dillon has set his own standard for 25 years now. Hailed a "punk rock provocateur," "jazz vibraphone visionary" and "percussion virtuoso," the Texas native's affiliation with artists like Les Claypool, Brave Combo and Ani DiFranco, collaborations such as Garage A Trois, The Dead Kenny Gs and Critters Buggin, and bands he's fronted, including Billy Goat, Hairy Apes BMX and The Mike Dillon Band, have led to a rabid cult fan-base.
