Mico Wave

Mico Wave (born Michael Lane on December 27, 1961 in Champaign, Illinois) is an R&B singer from the '80s. At the age of 25, he met his mentor, Bootsy Collins which lead to him signing to Columbia Records.
In 1988, he released his debut album, "Cooking From the Inside Out" which didn't appear to make the Billboard album charts.
The first single, "Misunderstood" peaked at #41 on Billboard's Hot Dance Music/Club Play chart and #70 on Billboard's Hot Black Singles chart, staying on the chart for 11 weeks.
The follow-up single, "Instant Replay" became a hit, peaking at #15 on Billboard's Hot Black Singles chart, staying on the chart for 15 weeks.

Since then, Mico Wave has written & produced songs for artists such as Herbie Hancock, George Clinton, the Deele, Malcolm McClaren, Snow, and Cali Swag District.

These days, it appears that Mico Wave is still active in the music business and lives in Las Vegas. In 2012, he released the single, "Let's Talk Dirty" from his upcoming album, "Public, Private & Personal" which is yet to be released.
