Family is everything to me. It breathes through me.

Mike attributes much of his inspiration to his family. “Family is everything to me. It breathes through me. It is my light that shines so brightly. It is what keeps me in line. It makes me do what I do. Family that are living to my Ancestors that have gone before, that paved my way for me to do this wonderful journey called music.”
