Recognised as one of the most gifted singer songwriters in the city, Mike first came to light in the early noughties with his band, The Bonnitts.
Having played on the BBC Introducing Stage at Leeds Festival back in 2007 the band broke up and soon after, Mike threw himself in to a new project, Dephot, with John Andrews and Myles Howell of Kingmaker, one of the region's most celebrated bands back in the nineties.
With Kingmaker back for a series of shows across the UK, and with Mike now onboard as a guest vocalist, we've invited Mike to perform twice at this year's Festival, on his own and with Kingmaker on the Strummerville stage.
Incredibly humble, once witnessed live, you’ll know that you’ve just seen something very special.
For fans of Ray Lamontagne, Damien Rice and Ben Howard.
