Recordings and Production
Mike has worked as a producer on a variety of projects over the last 10 years. Recent work includes the sultry Alicia Gianni produced with Grammy winning Dan Workman and rootsy/folk artist Craig Kinsey on his newest July 2014 release (and previous release named one of the “12 best Texas Albums” of the year by the Houston Chronicle along with Willie Nelson and Hayes Carll). Other co-production work has included pop collaborations, rock bands, gypsy jazz ensembles, esoteric outsider art, and funk in the outfit ‘Vibe Committee’ recorded with Grammy winning engineer Steve Christenson.
August 2014 marks the release of Trio, a full length jazz release featuring new arrangements of jazz standards. In March of 2013 Mike also produced and released Stations of the Cross: 14 Vignettes based on modal musical improvisation.
Projects are mixed and mastered on a Pro Tools/UAD Apollo system through Neumann Monitors, while tracking runs through Universal Audio Pre-Amps with a variety of microphones.
