Art and music have been part of Mike’s life since any early age. Growing up in Northern Michigan he started taking piano lessons at 6 years old and that musicality and artistry followed him through high school band and art classes. Mike joined the US Army Reserve in 2000 when he graduated high school and in 2003 he was deployed to Iraq. This is where his love of guitar really started.
At age 15 Mark bought his first bass for $30. It was a Univox violin bass, loosely, a Beatle bass copy. After a year or so, he began incorporating bass into his parish guitar mass group (where he met his wife and many lifelong friends). Mark learned a lot playing that style of music. He also learned a lot from his and his older brother’s, records, Sabbath, Rush, etc. Later, Mark joined a variety of bands, a hardcore Chicago punk band called Fast Forward, playing on a local folk artist’s album, Bill Dicker, and in a rock bar band called Sheridan Ave.
