He has done everything from session work for producers such as Jazze Pha, to leading sessions on Music Row, and even being featured on CMT’s Nashville, playing guitar for Juliette Barnes (Hayden Panettiere). He is mostly know for his high energy guitar playing with his band, The Anti-Heroes, or his solo performances on acoustic guitar, as well as his blues and jazz influenced trio.<hr />
Mike Hayes's unmatched roots-style of guitar sets him apart from the average aspiring star playing in any local venue. Beyond anything else Mike’s authentic approach and innate talent for live performances convinces an audience of any size that he’s lived the blues he plays.
In the spring of 2015, Mike headlined the launch of the renowned Malibu Guitar Festival, performing alongside legends like Albert Lee, Richie Sambora, and Orianthi. Mike’s innate ability to capture the thrill of live performance and translate every emotive note to a recording has earned him film placement for his original song “I’m A Fool” as well as session work for TV and Film. Mike has also opened for acts including The Allman Brothers Band, Charlie Daniels, The Marshall Tucker Band, and Gov't Mule.
Now Mike has made a leap back to the East coast, the place in which he cut his musical teeth. Nashville is a springboard to endless possibilities for him to hone his craft as a songwriter and a natural performer. Click here to check out his next set.<hr />
