Calling him old fashioned complements his natural desire to connect. Paying tribute to great wordsmiths Paul Simon, James Taylor, Frederick Buechner and C.S. Lewis, Mike writes music that is intelligent, not just successful. His inherent ability to blend life with his work is perhaps the ultimate reason for his strength in song. Pulling from his East Atlanta roots, love for family and relational manner with people, Mike’s soulful words provide foundation for the conversation, give life and spark love.

He is at his best when listeners find a friend in his music - true to his kindred tendency. Mike is known to be just the needed element at an intimate celebration or favorite local venue. He and his band are a regular headliner at the renowned Eddie's Attic in Atlanta. It was there that pop favorite John Mayer took notice of Mike's music as he took the stage. His reaction: "Dude, you’ve got it!"
