Mike Bailey is a singer/songwriter and acoustic guitarist who grew up in Athens, Georgia. Mike writes and sings alternative folk music with an influence of old blues.
Some of the earliest influences that shaped Mike's music were Reverend Gary Davis, Son House, and Blind Willie McTell. One of his early favorites was Bob Dylan.
Growing up in the college town of Athens, Mike was exposed to a wide variety of musicians playing in the area. He loved listening to 78 RPM Recordings. He began
playing music live around the Athens and Atlanta area in the late 80's and early 90's. Guitar lessons from Norman Blake helped shape his skill with a guitar! Mike is currently
working on his second album of all original music which is folky and bluesy.
After nearly two decades of corporate interruption, Mike retired in 2017 and returned to what he loves! Writing, Playing and singing! He enjoys refining his
musical skills at Fur Peace Ranch in Ohio several times a year.
