A fanatical songwriter from Chicago, Mike has written hundreds of songs driven by groove and a love for the craft. Classically trained on piano, which he began playing at the age of seven, Mike also plays guitar, bass and drums. His earliest work stems from Jazz improv classes taken at St. Xavier College in Chicago while he was in high school. After years of playing keys and bass in cover bands, Mike decided to devote his music career to songwriting in the early nineties. His debut album, 'It's About Time' was released in October 2002 and has gained popularity in the Midwest as well as other regions in the US.
