Steve Adamyk Band
"Mike is an incredibly talented engineer and producer, with a really great ear. He's very focused, detail oriented, and works quickly and efficiently to dial in tones - which allows you to just focus on playing your parts.
He's also a highly skilled editor, and mixer - and is able to take direction and make adjustments on the fly. He's very easy to work with, and will literally sleep under the mixing desk to get a project done on time."

Crusades, The Creeps
Mike took us through the perfect process to record our album! He put in the time ahead of our sessions to make sure everything would go smoothly making our time in the studio feel comfortable and effortless. He was also always happy to jump in with advice or ideas when we needed guidance and was just an awesome presence to have in the room when creating an album. Stoked to get back in the studio with him!
