• Colorado Bound!

    I am very honored to have been selected a finalist in the Rocky Mtn Folks Festival Songwriter Showcase.  Look at that line up!!!  WOOOOAH!  I'll be heading out to Lyons, CO August 18-20 to play my songs and soak it all in.  Wish me luck!   Read more about it here: ROCKY MT FOLKS FEST

    Here's the song that got me the nod: MISS THIS PLACE

    Thanks for all your support. 


  • Mostly Folk!

    On a recent run of shows, Emily Barnes and I stopped by the Mostly Folk studio in the Catskills of New York state to chat with the great Artie Martello about our duo, the upcoming solo project, and much more.  It was a pleasure chatting with him and laughing it up with Emily as usual.

  • Closer to Home - the duo album has arrived!

    First we would like to start of by sincerely thanking our families, friends, and dedicated listeners for believing in this project; without each and every one of you this tree would be lifeless and leafless. Secondly we would like to thank all of the talented pickers, picture takers (sorry for cutting them up!) and master planners for making these songs sound like the tunes we have been hearing in our heads and making the process unforgettable. Last but not least we would like to thank the beaten paths, endless forests, miles of open road and the beauty it brought to us that offered infinite inspiration that we sculpted into these songs. Each one of these tunes is really special to us just like all of you, so thank you from the bottom of our hearts. We hope we've made you as happy as the start of this journey has made us....Together in song with love, Mike and Emily
