Mike Ball / Bio

Mike Ball is an award-winning humorist, musician, and author of What I've Learned So Far... who lives and writes on the shores of Whitmore Lake, Michigan, sharing a roof with his wife Nancy and a psychotic Siamese cat. Mike started his music career in Hawaii at the age of 7 with a ukulele and a squeaky voice. By the late 1960s he was fronting several "garage" bands, writing songs like "Hey, You Dropped That Rake on My Amp!" Growing tired of having friends and money, Mike switched gears to folk music and never looked back. In addition to cranking out books and his nationally syndicated humor column, Mike is the founder of Lost Voices, a Michigan non-profit group that takes therapeutic roots music writing and performing programs to incarcerated and at-risk youth. The band Dr. Mike and the Sea Monkeys are named after a recurring character in the column, an advice columnist whose credentials as a counselor come from an online college of bar tending.
