Born 1984, Music has been a huge part in Mike's life starting at an early age. By middle school he was asked to join a special group of 8 students known as select chorus for his vocal abilities. Once he went to high school he really focused a majority of time on learning guitar and harmonica. His school back pack was replaced by a guitar and case that he would bring with him everywhere he went. His senior year was awarded "Most Likely to Be Famous" for the yearbook.
