Mike Stocksdale is an artist you've listened to your whole life, or at least it feels that way. There is familiarity in his melodies, and the honest stories he tells hit home. His ability to translate his personal experiences into relatable lyrics is, in a word, captivating.
Stocksdale is a songwriter to his core. He started writing tunes at the age of fifteen, when he first learned a few chords on the guitar, and he hasn’t stopped since. He’s been recording and releasing music since the early 2000s, first as lead guitarist and songwriter for the popular Midwest band, Three Minute Mile, and later as a solo artist. His most recent album, Until the Oceans Rise, is a conversational collection of songs blending the best parts of folk, rock, blues, and country. It was tracked live to tape at Moosecat Recording Studio in Los Angeles, and Stocksdale recorded auxiliary instruments and mixed in his home studio in Culver City, CA.<br>
