Born and raised on the north shore of Long Island, NY, Mike has been playing guitar for mainly personal enjoyment since 1981. During much of the last 25 years, he lived in Manhattan and Bridgehampton and worked in finance.
Having focused on his dream to write and record his own music for the last few years, Mike's first full-length album, All The Pretty Things, is due out in early 2014. The demos have been well-reviewed and especially praised for their authentic feel, melodic twists and original stories. He counts Radiohead, The Who, Pink Floyd, George Harrison and Elliott Smith as his biggest musical influences.
He lives in Larkspur, CA with his wife, three children and border collie mixed mutt, Layla.
