His solo music, littered with virtuoso nuances and micro-techniques, has seen him tour almost every continent on the planet. He has recorded with multiple grammy award-wining artists, featured on international film and TV and achieved over 100 million music video hits online for his acclaimed solo covers of songs like Somebody That I Used To Know, Slow Dancing in a Burning Room, Titanium (feat.

Additionally, Mike tours as lead guitar player for Justin Hayward, performing The Moody Blues classics throughout the world.
