Originally from Athens, Georgia and now living in Decatur, Mike counts Bob Dylan, Vic Chesnutt, Nirvana, and Uncle Tupelo among his formative influences. He has shared the stage with southern rock legends the Marshall Tucker Band, Grammy Award winners The Blind Boys of Alabama, and alt-country luminary Jay Farrar.
Mike’s s third full length album, "Poverty is Real” was released by Saturn 5 records toworldwide digital distribution. The title track on the album has been featured in acclaimed director Salvatore Alaimo’s documentary “What is Philanthropy?” alongside songs by Patti Smith and Ziggy Marley.
Produced by Will Robertson, the record is a more muscular presentation of Mike's songwriting than found previously, with crunchy electric guitars and racous crash cymbals appearing throughout. BeAtlanta.com called Poverty is Real, "a collection of beautiful arrangements and meaningful lyrics."
