Mike Paterson takes a unique approach to song writing, crafting simple, vocal driven melodies, full of nostalgia and insight.
Originally from Co. Cavan, while Mike was living in the forests of northern Germany at the start of 2018, he wrote, recorded and produced his latest EP “Devils In The Water”, released May 2018, under Homebeat Presents. With this EP, Mike draws directly from his personal experience with Depression, Loss, Hope, and Sexual Assault.
Mike takes the same approach to his live performance, as he does with recording. Always keeping an air of intimacy and inclusive simplicity with his audience.
Mike signed a publishing deal with Avant Music group in May 2018.
