Kansas native, Mike Rathke, is a spirit-folk singer/songwriter based out of Canby Oregon. Since the age 14, Mike has been creating the soundtrack to his environment. He bought his first acoustic guitar for 20 bucks from a neighbor girl at Thunderbird Mobile Estates in his early teens. That guitar became an escape. Plucking out songs on those nylon strings for hours at a time kept him sane through the turbulent times. Today, music is more than a hobby. This journey is a part of his DNA and he is excited to share it with you!
His music covers a broad range of real life experiences. Every song is the manifestation of a story, memory, or pondering that gives the listener a glimpse at the world through his eyes.
