18 year old singer-songwriter Mike Dignam has been writing songs since primary school but only started performing 3-4 years ago. His writing displays maturity and sincerity, embracing “the here and now; he looks to the future and sings about aspirations and dreams.” (New Steps Promotions)
Citing his key influences as John Mayer, Jason Mraz and Gavin DeGraw, Mike’s first album, ‘World of Our Own’ was recorded DIY-style in a bedroom above a garage with the help of his friends Sam Hocking (mixing and mastering) and Roo Walker (engineering and recording).
Mike has previously supported indie-rock outfit Pete & the Pirates at the Fly and will be playing the Kendall Calling Festival with The Streets and The Zutons at the end of July. Catch him at the Vibe on 6 August for The Twitgigs Experiment before he heads off to Switzerland…
