What to Expect
Quality covers with a spin all our own. I perform a wide array of covers spanning from the 60's to present day. With over 850 songs under my belt I can typically tune into the songs you or your audience would hope to hear, and am very capable of bringing it to a level of quality to exceed expectations. I have a large vocal range and am a very capable guitarist with a team of musicians behind me I've been working with for years. We can absolutely take the event to another level, and make a wonderful addition to the atmosphere of the space.
This acoustic alternative rock soloist, Mike Richards released his first live self-titled, 5-track EP back in August of 2015.
Based in Washington D.C., he has toured the country playing from coast to coast. Mike has been performing in rock bands and acoustically since the age of 14. His roots stem from a heavy influence of 90’s alternative mixed with some acoustic rock. His influences through the years have been the likes of Incubus, the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Smashing Pumpkins, Foo Fighters, Third Eye Blind, Jack Johnson, John Mayer, Ed Sheeran, Prince, and The Beatles. He began this project after the split of The Offset, a former Washington DC based rock band that opened for the likes of The Wailers and Frankie Munoz’s band “You Hang Up”.
Since starting A Note Two Self, Mike has been signed to a small label based in Phoenix Arizona and has been performing around the nation for local clubs and festivals such as the Atlantic City Beer Festival with names such as the Dropkick Murphy’s and Streetlight Manifesto. He also performed in the 2017 Chicago IL and Columbia MD legs of Vans Warped Tour.
