Mike T. Kerr is a wild guitar player and ambitious songwriter of Canadian heritage and American citizenship. During his time at Berklee College of Music in Boston and in over 10 years of performing, he's lived his life through many historical and contemporary musical styles. Always curious to dig up not only a song's history, but the shape of the world at the time, Mike plays passionately and openly while interpreting the great guitar players of the past, primarily across the country blues and jazz genres. A Danny Gatton lick or Django Reinhardt tune is never far from his fingertips. When it comes to his own songwriting, Mike writes storytelling ballads inspired by old movies and current events.
