Mike began playing bass guitar at the age of 13, aspiring to switch from baritone sax in his middle school jazz band.  When that didn't happen, he happily switched to guitar and never looked back.  A self taught player initially influenced by Kiss and the big hair bands of the 80's, you will now find just about every genre on his playlist, from classical to jazz, even to death metal.  He has been playing out in the Milwaukee area throughout the 90's and the 00's in jazz ensembles, rock cover bands, and original bands.  Now, finding his home joining Fadeback in February of '08, he shares the stage with some of the greatest musicians in Milwaukee.  Note: he still is considered the "new guy" so he's gotta suck up a little.
