About the artist
With his expressive voice and soulful appeal, Mike Liegel is creating songs that are alternately playful and deeply emotive. The songwriter grew up in the rural suburban town of Oak Ridge, New Jersey, where he first started learning the piano at age seven. A highly touted baseball prospect, throughout his life Mike balanced his two passions – baseball and music – enjoying great success in both. When not competing athletically, Mike worked side by side with his father constructing a recording studio in the backyard of his childhood home. This studio, reminiscent of an old barn, became a place of creative solitude where Mike wrote and developed many of his early songs. After an injury derailed his promising collegiate baseball career, Mike took a step back to re-devote himself to his first love; songwriting.
