Mike is a virtuoso acoustic guitarist and Ivor-nominated composer, performing in the styles of classical, Spanish, jazz and modern pop.

As a composer Mike’s recent projects include co-composing for the hit Ubisoft video game Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, which received a prestigious Ivor Novello nomination for ‘Best Original Video Game Score 2019’. In addition, Mike regularly composes for video games from mobile to AAA, and composes for music production labels Sony/EMI, Universal, Cavendish, Audio Network and Boost Music.

Mike started playing the guitar at the age of six, and by the age of twelve was a finalist at the regional BBC Young Musician of The Year contest. From this classical background Mike went on to gain a degree in Popular Music and Recording, resulting in the huge variety of music styles performed.
