This Canadian singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist reveals a talent solid as stone, a style that can ignite a fire and a voice that can fuel a smoky affair. It’s no wonder why Michael ‘Guitar Mikey’ McMillan shakes up the house one moment with his rhythm and rootsy sound and soothes listeners the next with his bluesy soulful ballads.
Out Of The Box, his first studio album in over 20 years, has been climbing the Roots Music Report since May. It has reached #1 on the Canadian Roots and #12 on the USA Blues chart. With his great supporting cast on the album, this 15 track CD is getting airplay in countries including USA, Australia, Belgium, Canada, France, Germany, Greece, Italy and the UK.

Playing the guitar when he was just 7 years old, Guitar Mikey got serious about the instrument by the time he turned 10 and followed his destined path at eleven years old when he snuck backstage to meet his mentor, “father of modern Chicago blues” Muddy Waters and hasn’t looked back since then. He was playing in local rock bands when he was twelve and at sixteen, began fronting the critically acclaimed/award-winning Steel City Blues Band.

He has been traveling and making headway in the blues scene since, performing in cities as Toronto, Buffalo, Chicago and Boston. Throughout his career he has shared the stage with the likes of Honeyboy Edwards, Yank Rachel, Buddy Guy, Otis Rush, Billy Branch, Carl Weathersby, Long John Baldry and Paul Butterfield. Now in his new home of Clarksdale, Mississippi, he continues to influence the music community.

Guitar Mikey has refined the best of his musical influences and has brought out his truest sense of American roots into his current project, Out Of The Box. He’s definite proof that American roots music is fresh and alive.
