His songs reflect his impassioned engagement with the world. Mike's musical language builds upon powerful lyrics, soaring vocals, driving rhythms, and melodic riffs that explore emotional depths and transformation. He mixes things up with a knack for the well-conceived parody, like his popular civil liberties tribute, “Spyin' Eyes”. Mike’s songs have appeared on numerous radio stations and he plays regularly in the Bay Area while periodically following the call of the open road to other regions of the country.
