At 14, he began attending open mics in his neighborhood, playing his own material (and doing a lot of listening as well). For the last five years, Mike has lived in New Orleans, where he is known more as a musical chameleon. Mike has been involved in a number of musical projects around the city, including singing in an A Cappella group, playing bass for The Revivalists and lending his trumpet skills to Funk.Soul.Family. The influence of New Orleans - old and new forms of jazz, passionate live performance, and understated multiculturality - is quite evident in his musical personality.
