Singer, dancer, actor, stage director, one-man show, describing Mike, an unusual character, needs air, space, atmosphere, colours and sound! So to sum him up in a few lines is like trying to put a skyscraper in a jar!
“I don’t know him, but he’s probably a star!”
Mike is first and foremost an undeniable charisma. As soon as you catch a glimpse of him, his magnetism strikes you.
As a teenager and unknown, Mike had to play the autograph game! In the street, people would ask him for his signature! His “presence” was so obvious that some young people thought “I don’t know him, but he must be a star!”
Today, when Mike and I go for a walk in the city, we see how many heads turn as he passes by! Something about him appeals: his look, his look, his style? Or maybe something more subtle, but so strong about him.
So much for appearance. But the magic happens when he comes on stage and takes the microphone. Silence sets in, the whole audience’s attention is focused on him I From then on, the room is his.
The heir of a ‘land’ culture!
He aims for the human side of an Isaac HAYES. He knows how to generate the powerful sound that today’s audiences expect.
Mike has something to say, like an MC Solon or some rappers. But his language is different. His approach is emotional.
