Born in Providence, RI and raised in Killingly, CT, Mike was exposed to many different genres of music at a young age. His father listened to Rock and Country, his mother Disco, Funk, and Pop, his uncle Hard Rock and Metal, and his maternal grandfather Big Band, Swing, and Easy Listening. Much of his family played music as well. His paternal grandfather and father Trombone, his mother vocals, and his uncle guitar. He started to develop a love for all different genres and styles of music, different instruments, as well as music culture and history. After learning to play guitar at age 12, he added on vocals, piano, and harmonica, which were all self taught. In 2013, he started playing open mics to gain exposure, then working on original material in 2015. In 2018, he started getting headlining gigs at bars and restaurants. His first EP “Blood, Sweat and Tears” is currently in production. It touches on situations of everyday life, all ranging from party anthems, to songs about relationships and heartache. As of January 2019, he has been hired with the band The Papa Joe Show in addition to his own work. With an upcoming career on the rise, there’s no telling what will happen!
