Michael "Mikal" Patrick Cronin (born December 26, 1985) is an American musician and songwriter. He has released three solo albums and several singles. Cronin is also a member of the bands Okie Dokie, Epsilons, Party Fowl and Moonhearts, and occasionally plays bass guitar and adds backing vocals in Ty Segall's live band; he has also released an album and a single in collaboration with Segall. Cronin earned his Bachelor of Fine Arts in music from California Institute of the Arts.

Cronin's MCIII follows in the footsteps of his power-pop breakout MCII, his first for Merge Records. The album adds strings, horns, and unusual instruments to the mix, and features a song suite about loss of personal agency, acceptance, and self-discovery. On "Turn Around", the opening track and lead single on MCIII, Mikal Cronin sings some sweet bromides about the passing of time. His lyrics are punctuated by little directives, like "Turn it down," "stop," or "turn around," "here it goes," and the arrangement seems to be responding to him, amping up or quieting down depending on the line. Without a devastating hook-like the one on "Weight", the opening track and lead single from Cronin’s 2013 full-length, MCII- it feels a bit like listening to stage instructions from a power pop song.

Yet that’s where we, and Cronin, find ourselves on MCIII the helpfully titled third solo album from the San Francisco based singer. Following up on the garage pop nugget that was the delightful MCII, Cronin revisited that formative experience – one that led him to head home and write songs, meet Ty Segall and form a band – and created an album of two distinct halves. Side one of MCIII is five power-pop gems, his most immediate collection of songs to date and the most hook-heavy start to a record in 2015
