Mike's love of music came from his father. If his father, an accomplished musician, wasn't listening to classical music he was playing guitar or banjo. As a young boy Mike would sneak his father's favorite guitar and copy what he had heard. Quickly the music was in his blood. His first band was the "Mods" at the age of fourteen. Over the years he has started many bands with his brothers and friends. Early on Mike realized he could compose and arrange his own music. He also has the ability to play many instruments and genres'. He always has a tune playing in his head and now brings the music to life in his studio.
