With an uncanny ability to turn a phrase and pen lyrics that rattle around in your head, Mike Herz writes and performs in a style that is all his own. An aspiring poet long before picking up a guitar, Herz quickly came to the realization that his words could enter more ears if put to a tune. Flash forward years and many miles later and Mike feels most comfortable on stage in front of complete strangers. Music has brought him across this great nation and into spellbound evenings in some of the best listening rooms and festivals around, including selctions as an Emerging Artist at Falcon Ridge Folk Festival and a Showcase Finalist at the Rocky Mtn. Folks Festival. His most recent album "Live in NYC" was released on April 20th, 2018.
