Bio

I must start out by saying that my music has been my solace for a long time. I always write from my heart mainly about my life and observations I make of society and the on-goings around me with somewhat of a moralistic undertone. I am extremely honest almost to a fault and I think that sets me apart from a lot of current artists today as I am willing to put it all out there good or bad about myself or just simple observations.

I have been playing piano for over 20 years and I have been playing guitar, which was self-taught and writing my own music and lyrics for about 10 years. School was never my thing, I was always so much more drawn to music as it has always been a present force in my life.

As a matter of fact my grandmother left me her piano when she passed. I was very young and my mother was determined for me to take piano. There were many times throughout my life where piano bored me, but I kept at it for my grandmother and my mother was definitely the driving force. I was fortunate enough to have private lessons with some great teachers and I thank my mother now for getting me to stick with it.

Writing music and lyrics is something that comes very natural to me, so I am constantly creating new music, at least 5 or 6times a month as I tire with my music very quickly. Creating is definitely my favorite part of the whole process.

My main musical influences in my life have been:

Ray LaMontagne, The Beatles, Damien Rice, Nick Drake, Ben Harper, Radiohead, Swell Season and Elliott Smith and Glen Hansard

My main goal in this life is for me to be able to make a comfortable living playing my music, I would love to travel and share my music with the world. At this point in time, I have developed a following of almost 70,000 fans, I have a song on YOUTUBE by the name of "What You're Doing to Me" that has received over 70,000 views and I'm beginning to play a lot more paying gigs which is great!

I will continue to update this as my career progresses and I thank you for taking some time out of your day to read about me.

Regards,
Mike
