Mike is new on the scene, so to speak, but he’s spent years on the road in a former life playing diverse venues. At twenty-three he hit the road with his brother-in-law, and as part of Salmond and Mulder found unusual stages across the nation - clubs, churches, coffee houses, stadiums. After two thousand concerts and seven years as part of a duo, Mike took a long hiatus. Now, with three respectable solo Cds to his credit and remarkable momentum as a veteran of classic songwriting, Mike considers himself to be a re-emerging elder statesman in a music field often looking for roots. Mike’s music has roots that go deep into the heart of the American soul.
