Having been brought up in a musical environment, it was inevitable that Mike would make a name for himself as an artist in his own right, but not without earning his spots first.
Mike has paid his dues as a sideman over the last fifteen years with the likes of Elkie Brooks, Tony Hadley, Kid Creole, Heather Small, ABC and Sandi Thom.
In 2016, he was asked to work alongside the international brand CREAM as their sax and keys player for the CREAM CLASSICS tour in 2016-2019 with K-Klass and the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra.
A musician from the age of 10, he went onto study at the prestigious Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts, where he now works as a part time lecturer.
His diverse and wide ranging experience have given him kudos amongst his peers and he has become one of the most sought after sax players in his price range.
Mike has several of his own albums out on the ‘Ameritz’ record label under his brand name of gingertunes.
