Many good things set Mike Collins above other songwriters, guitarists and singers. Not only does Mike write American folk and rock, but also he writes foreign styles like the Celtic baroque in Excalibur, or Slavic folk in the song Ballad of Dushan. As for Mike's guitar playing, Mike has an unparalleled ability to finger pick, both acoustic and electric. Mike's singing is distinctive as well. He sings tenor much like John Denver, yet he also sings in foreign languages. At concerts, you will hear him sing in German and Russian. He also writes lyrics in those languages.

The album Ballad of Dushan is Mike's most recenft project.

Desert Anthem is Mike's first album. It offers a broad palette of folk music, rock, and love songs that feature thought-provoking lyrics and soulful harmonies. Whether they deal with social ills or lost love, the tunes on this album are a pleasure to listen to over and over again. Two popular songs on this album are Excalibur and I Don't Remember Asking You. Both have made it to the charts at several national radio stations. You can purchase the album Desert Anthem from this web site or from iTunes, EMusic and other digital distributors.

Mike is ably backed by Brian Ceccarelli on keyboards. Brian's on-target interpretations of Mike's songs arise from their many years of collaboration. Rounding out the cast are Jim Sahadi on drums, Caitlin Collins on violin, and Stephanie Gervase of Fields of White singing backing vocals.
