Some background:

Mike spent his early years in Rock & Roll bands during which time he also studied and then taught electronic music and synthesiser programming.

During the late 1980's he joined Albert Studios, studying recording and production techniques under Australian music icons Vanda and Young of the 'Easybeats' fame. While there he recorded an album and several singles with his brother Stewart as the MSP Band. They enjoyed some chart success and toured under the guidance of their mentors Vanda and Young. Mike also played keyboard sessions on some of the Vanda & Young 'Flash & the Pan' recordings.

Mike decided to go his own way as a solo piano/vocal artist in the late 1980's, working the notorious rock & roll piano bar at Cronulla Sharks Leagues Club every Thursday to Sunday. The nights there were legendary. He attracted a huge following and continued to preside over that bar for more than six years.

Deciding a change in direction was in order, Mike began a long stay at the Trade Union Club in Sydney. He continued to develop his technique while diversifying and extending his song list to include lounge music and songs from the '30s and '40's.

In 1998 Mike began to work freelance in the piano bars and restaurants of Sydney. He has always been in great demand at clubs, hotels and bars and has been one of the hardest working piano player / vocalists in Sydney for some years.

In 2003 he decided it was time to relocate. Basing himself in Tasmania, he continues to perform all over Australia.
