Mike MacKenzie is a versatile guitarist, singer and songwriter based in Calgary, Alberta. For the last number of years, he has been steadily writing, recording and touring with his solo project in addition to other musical ventures. His incendiary blues-rock music is inspired by such groups as Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple and Jimi Hendrix but manages to retain its own identity walking the line between vintage and modern. Mike has had many influences flavor his musical experience, including original rock bands, jazz college, blues jams and years of experimenting with his own writing and recording techniques. Currently, The Mike MacKenzie Band maintains a steady itinerary of shows all over Western Canada and he released his second album "Solstice" in late 2017. An enhanced follow-up to his first album "Natural Causes" (2014), it is a collection of ten original songs that offers an eventful listening through several veins of rock. His music has been called "a richly diverse selection but always interesting" by Classic Rock Society, "a substantial level of songwriting craft" by Blues Matters Magazine and he sees this new release as an accurate depiction of his present musical whereabouts. Upcoming shows, links, contact info and more can be found at mikemackenzie.ca and his albums are on all the major social media sites/apps and in numerous Alberta record stores. He was also featured in The Calgary Herald and on the cover of the Edmonton Journal in February.
You can find Mike on page 30 of this issue on Shelves of Chapters/Indigo.
