Mike Lynch has an instinctive ability to write great songs, and his style of country music comes from the best place, his heart. Mike admits he’s been to Nashville, but never considered living that lifestyle, rather, hitting the road and making his own experiences right here along the Trans-Canada Highway.
A lifestyle that has worked well for him but also left him on a road much less travelled.“It’s a different kind of road, but rewarding!” says Mike, “Also, you meet people you would never otherwise meet.”
In the past, he’s played some of the biggest stages in the country, and performed coast to coast, which he’ll tell you was the real reason he wanted to be a travelling singer. Mike laughs and says, “ I love the road, I love the scenery, but I mostly love a fun crowd”…
This Niagara native brings to life a genuine real honest show and a few heartbreaking songs along the way. Expect: enthusiastic, fun, heartfelt, with a great, traditional country sound.
Imagine if Stompin’ Tom Connors, Jim Cuddy, and Billy Joe Shaver had a child. Haha, well you know what I mean.
Mike has shared the stage with many names from the music world: Fred Eaglesmith, Charlie Major, Barenaked Ladies, Skydiggers, Willie P. Bennett, Roger Hodgeson (Supertramp), and many more.
I asked Mike how he feels about getting back on the road after these last couple of tough years, “ I’m excited to sing my songs again and see some old friends, I ain’t gettin’ any younger!” (Note: Lynch performed 41 weekly ’Live in the bathtub’ concerts on Facebook over Covid!)
