Bio: Mike Bauer is a singer-songwriter/independent recording artist as well as a multi-instrumentalist (guitar, bass, trumpet, piano) and has been noted for his distinctive voice. He comes from a musically-influenced household, where he began singing at an early age while growing up in Colorado Spring...See Full Bio
"Bauer has a signature style that barrows from artists like R. Kelly, Maxwell and Micheal Jackson just to name a few. His timing is spot on and his vocal range is dangerous... I would recommend this CD to anyone looking for a taste of fresh contemporary pop with a touch of the old Micheal Jackson swagger. Financial Aid, Vol 2 is a top 10 performance with all the makings of a real world talent."
Ask Mike Bauer anything...
Q: who inspires you, what inspires you! I'm buying your album after that song now, but if you can please answer. i wanna go check that out to. Who, What inspires you?
A: Musically, I am inspired by quite an eclectic bunch. I grew up loving the standards (especially Ella Fitzgerald and Billie Holiday) then I discovered Stevie Wonder, Al Green, Bill Withers and the rest of Motown. To this day Boyz II Men is a huge favorite... In terms of current music, I love Bernhoft (this dude will blow your mind!!!!) Mraz, Mars, and basically anyone with a huge vocal range, good lyrics, and soul. In terms of what inspires me, people... People more than anything. For me, life is all about our relationships, friendships, and communities. My greatest inspiration is always found within those around me. They shape me and the music. Thanks for your kind words and I sincerely hope you enjoy the music! Seriously, check out Bernhoft (but watch his YouTube videos before anything else).
