Recent releases include the title track to 2024 breakout star Dasha’s “Dirty Blonde” album, co-written and produced by Mike. Recent engineering projects include singer-songwriters Niko Moon and Allen Stone.

Mike got his start working for Norwegian pop producer Axident, which lead to a working relationship with iconic songwriter Justin Tranter. With Justin, Mike engineered and mixed for various producers and artists, including DNCE, Courtney Love and Tricky Stewart. Mike also engineered, co-produced and mixed Tranter signee Shea Diamond’s debut EP “Seen It All”, which features “I Am Her”, ranked as #33 on Billboard’s LGBTQ+ Anthems of All Time in 2023.
