About Mike Strickland

In the artist’s words: Describe one of your earliest musical memories in detail. Getting a spinet piano in the house when I was 6 years old. I was thrilled to have a polyphonic instrument I could instantly play. Just pushing down the keys and listening. Such fun. What are your top 3 all-time favorite albums on Apple Music, and why? Why did you choose these three albums in particular? Dave Grusin, The Very Best of Dave Grusin Ramsey Lewis Trio, The Greatest Hits of Ramsey Lewis These three artists influenced my musical direction. Their treatment of melody, texture, mood. Ogermann's use of arranging textures and harmonies are gorgeous. Grusin is such a great melody writer. Ramsey has such a deep groove. Find a song of yours on Apple Music that you love and tell us what makes it special. Tell us why you chose this song. “Watching the World Go By” This original song has good harmonic texture and line and it is also very pianistic - good for developing the hands. Visual, emotional and provocative. What’s one of the most memorable moments in your career so far? In the early 90's first hearing my music on TV - CBS Sports Golf Is there anything left on your bucket list as an artist or band? Yes - writing a song that helps to heal the world.
