Description

Mike didnโ€™t start writing songs until he was 26. It wasnโ€™t until he hit the vibrant pub scene in inner-Melbourne that the suburban boy from Adelaide decided, โ€œI can do that.โ€ Two years later Mike found himself in Los Angeles with a publishing deal and working with some of the biggest names in pop music. But his path to pop wasnโ€™t straightforward.

During his time in Los Angeles, Mike penned songs with the likes of Demi Lovato and Louis Tomlinson. Eventually the back and forth to the States was wearing Mike down and he decided it was time to focus on the music scene in Australia.

Mike explains, โ€œIn LA is everyone writes about falling in and out of love. Iโ€™m married happily and I canโ€™t relate to that in the way other people can. I have other things I want to talk about that are a bit deeper. I want to talk about mental health and the human experience, growing up and stuff that means things to people outside of just a love song or a hate song.โ€

As an additional talking point to the music, Mike is a full time web developer and coder 9am โ€“ 5pm and runs a team of 15 as the head of engineering at the fastest growing tech site globally. Living his life as real life Hannah Montana of music and tech.
