Mike brings all his experience to his songs and to the stage, with a brand of Blues-Infused Americana that ranges from humorous to edgy, silly to profound.  His relaxed stage presence leaves the audience smiling, feeling, thinking, and humming along. Expect Mike to slip a slide on his finger, too.

"I've listened to 'What's Done Is Done' several times now and it seems to get better each time.  Nice work!" - Grady Ormsby, Booking Manager, Down East Folk Arts

Thanks to everyone who attended my show on April 24th from the Third Street Coffeehouse Livestream stage. I had a lot of fun, met a few friends in a different context (you know who you are), and we raised $160 for Feeding Southwest Virginia (they tell me that's 800 meals!)

The Bard’s Prayer

Our fans, who art in the audience, hardly know our name. Their tips may come, applause be won, on stage if we hold their attention. Give us our moment to be heard, and forgive us our train wrecks, as we forgive those who have nothing to say. So fine is the rhythm, and the melody, and the story, for about three minutes at a time. A-minor.
