Based out of Calgary, Alberta, Mike MacKenzie is a versatile guitarist, singer and songwriter. For the last number of years, he has been creating and releasing music under his own name and touring with the Mike MacKenzie Band. Influenced by such groups as Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix, The Allman Brothers and more, his sound is often described as “progressive blues-rock.”

Mike’s musical background is sculpted from being in numerous original rock bands, studying at Calgary’s Mount Royal University jazz program, improvising at blues jams, teaching guitar, and perpetual writing and recording. Currently he maintains a steady itinerary of shows across Western Canada and is working on his third studio album. His debut “Natural Causes” was released in 2014, noted for “a substantial level of songwriting craft” by Blues Matters Magazine, followed by “Solstice” in 2017 which Beatroute Magazine called “a rich and colourful panoramic spectrum of textured music.”

In addition to a full schedule with the MMB, Mike performs with other local groups and is available for session guitar work (see contact page) from his home studio or elsewhere. His music and videos can be found across the web on all major social media/streaming sites as well as many record stores.
