Mike Gilroy is 36-year old singer/songwriter originally from Southern California. Always an artist, it wasn’t until he was 20 years old that he discovered the awesome passion and blues of Stevie Ray Vaughan. Then he knew that the guitar was his calling, After practicing the blues style of SRV for a few years, his music started evolving from blues rock to more grunge-like alternative rock. In 2004, he started writing his own songs.
“I’m very much a product of classic rock and 90’s grunge, but like so many who probably say this, I don’t like to be limited to just those genres. I’m all about well-written, good sounding song regardless if its rock, blues, country, whatever.” His current grouping of songs are an acoustic melange of pop, blues, and country.
His main influences for his songwriting are: The Beatles, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Eric Clapton, Alice in Chains, Pearl Jam and so much more!!
Loves to listen to: Anything that’s passionate and original!!
