Mike Antone is a singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and audio engineer from the Snoqualmie Valley of Washington State.
All of Mike’s music is deeply rooted in the folk tradition. As a solo musician, Mike draws influence from the likes of Neil Young, My Morning Jacket and Townes Van Zandt, while maintaining a highly sincere sound, blending elements of folk, Americana and country blues.
Mike’s music is heavily influenced by the experience of living and growing up in the Snoqualmie Valley. Weaving together stories of guardian mountains and sacred rivers, Mike’s songs are rooted in the power of place, telling the story of someone who both loves and is loved by his home. Much of Mike’s music feels like prayer--prayer for the earth, for the love of the land, for each other and for our collective future. At once hopeful and somber, Mike’s music leaves listeners with a deep sense of what it means to be alive.
Mike currently resides at the base of Mount Si in his hometown of North Bend, WA with his wife Andrea, their dog and two cats. Mike works as an independent sound engineer via Mic & Tone Productions and at the Black Dog Arts Cafe in Snoqualmie, performs regularly with his musical projects, and supports the creative life of himself and his community.
