Born and raised on a ranch in NE Oklahoma, Mike got his start in music at 10 years old by learning to play guitar in order to spend more time with his favorite uncle. Like most Oklahoma children growing up on a farm, Mike learned most of his life lessons through hard work, sweat and determination.
Mike began writing his own songs and by the age of 20 his writing career reached full speed with well over 50 songs in his catalogue. He stays true to his roots in his song writing. You hear about cowboys, rodeo, and heartache. Mike grew up listening to a wide range of music, he would list Merle Haggard as his biggest influence in his music.
While Mike obtained an Associate’s degree in business administration and a Bachelor’s in finance, his first love has always been his music. He has never given up that dream he started when he picked up his first guitar. In 2003, he made a very important step in his music career. He was signed with Keaton Music Group in Nashville, TN as a BMI affiliated songwriter. He has had the opportunity to have his songs pitched to various artists such as George Strait, Clay Walker, Tracy Byrd, Trisha Yearwood, Mark Chestnutt, Buddy Jewell, as well as many other well established artists.
Mike is currently spending time in the studio recording an album that will be released in 2016. While he loves to write music, performing is just as much of a passion. He continues to play numerous venues as often as he can around Oklahoma, Kansas, Texas, Arkansas, Missouri, and Colorado. He is currently booking for 2016.
When Mike is not busing with his music you will find him spending time with his family on the family Ranch in Bartlesville, OK.
