Still working on that hot first release.



Mike McCulloch is a guitarist; performer and composer from Toronto Canada. Performing a mix of progressive metal and jazz, he is looking to prove his worth against the tides of the music industry. His music stems from his love for intricate and complex forms of music, utilising many different keys, time signatures and polyrhythms to transport the listener into another place of existence. The goal of this endeavour is to share in the creation of great music with both the fans and other musicians. To achieve these goals, publications, recordings and performances are needed. Growing up, he was introduced to the worlds in which Gustav Holst’s The Planets describes so perfectly to the ear. That inspiration has been a driving force into the musical journey of Mike McCulloch.

After a short stint in Nuclear Engineering, Mike came upon the jazz program at York University. He has since been studying to complete his Bachelor of Fine Arts in jazz performance, and composition. This experience has opened him up to a multitude of information, and a imposed a standard of quality the comes to define his presence as a musician. The purpose of all this effort is to move forward in completing the goals of producing an enjoyable experience in a new and exciting genre of music. Mike is currently composing original material for a new, upcoming release over the next year. His music has come to be known for its firm structure and originality. He is also hard at work preparing to create a fully engaging social media brand from his already established reputation.

Mike has recorded and had many performances with past bands. The Photon Epoch has released a pair of demo recordings of many of the band’s original material. They have performed at York University’s Absinthe Pub, Kensington Market’s The Supermarket and other Toronto venues. He has also performed with various other metal and progressive acts at venues such as Sneaky Dee’s, The Hard Luck, The Sister and many more. He also is a performing jazz artist. Recently, Mike has been working to put together a jazz EP with his band made up of York University graduates, and Toronto based independent musicians. They together have played venues such as; Casa Loma, The Steam Whistle Brewery, Cedar Brae Golf and Country Club and more. They have performed for many different events, such as ceremonies, galas and late night bar gigs. Each of these pieces of the puzzle are what mould together to form Mike McCulloch’s push into the waters of the music industry.

Mike is making strides to establish his foothold in his career, ready for any opportunity, confident in his abilities, both in the capabilities and the value that they can give to business parts and employers. He is extremely flexible, able to quickly understand and communicate ideas and goals with others around him. He above all listens to his surroundings for bits of knowledge that can benefit his career, and give him a leg up on his competition. Believing in something is what drives Mike’s music to be as unique as it is. Grasping into progressive metal, math rock, death metal and jazz, it opens up and creates a correlation between seemingly different styles.
