Part native American, Chumash of the Kalawashaq Village, he embraces the multicultural aspects of his deep roots. His multifaceted background is clearly reflected in his songwriting. Mike has created a wonderful way of telling stories through his original songs.

Mike is looking to share his music with the world. I invite you to hear his original music on his website... www.mikelopez.biz Make sure you have your volume turned up, for his site opens with a upbeat original tune, On The Wild Side. Once on his site, please go to 'original tunes'. You too will be impressed by Mike, his music, and his story's in song. Juanita's Wing is a particularly special song, for Mike wrote that song for his father, who had been guides along the Chumash path by Juanita Centano, a Chumash Medicine Woman. I feel compelled to contact you for I believe that Mike's songs are pure gems and he is a true treasure. I promise you will want Mike,along with Barrett Nelson of San Mateo, to perform for you at your festival.
