MIKE AIKEN Aiken’s love for singing, songwriting and sailing has taken him all over the world. As a songwriter he puts pen to paper and shares his colored and colorful life.

Mike's seventh studio album, WAYWARD TROUBADOUR, is a conceptualized project and the anticipated follow-up to the Grammy-nominated Captains & Cowboys (produced by Dan Baird, Georgia Satellites). As the first track’s title indicates, 'Everything Changed’ with this eleven song album.

As a touring artist, she has shared the stage with Patty Griffin, Civil Wars, Aaron Lee Tasjan, Lucinda Williams, Zac Brown Band, Elizabeth Cook, Legendary Shack Shakers, and more. Her band, Ladies Gun Club, received over a quarter of a million views for their music video and cover of “Road to Nowhere” after being officially endorsed by Talking Heads. In addition she has licensed music for network television shows, written tracks for film recorded with the London Symphony Orchestra, and in 2016 appeared in the feature film, Too Late, playing herself alongside two-time Oscar nominated actor, Jon Hawkes.
