Country music with authenticity, conviction & grit.
Mike Hellman is an independent country/americana artist originally from Houston, TX. His most recent release, “Dig Our Way to Hell”, has been aired by independent radio in Northern California and in Europe.
Mike’s style has the distinct imprints of Waylon Jennings and other home state heroes of his, but his style is anything but cliché. With musical influences that include country, blues, and folk, and lyrical themes that deal honestly with all aspects of the human condition, his songs bring originality and substance to a genre that often seems done to death.
No stranger to the stage, he has recently rocked San Francisco’s Great American Music Hall, and plays frequently at other respected establishments throughout Northern California, where he currently resides. Mike occasionally performs as a solo act, but is most often seen playing with his backing band with some of the best musicians in the industry.
Mike has been featured numerous times on KUSF in San Francisco, and recently received a write-up in HicksWithSticks.com, the Bay Area’s preeminent americana online resource.
