Mike Himebaugh is classic country inspired artist. His songs burst at the seams with joy. In Mikeís latest EP, Green, the influence of country twang fuses with lyrics and melodies that are uniquely his. Although Mike recently started touring on his own, he can also sometimes be found playing with the band Hello Dave.
Hereís how Mike describes his musical career:
ďI play music for a living.... Heaven. Iím so proud to have stood beside my band mates for so many years and create music that has become- as many have told me- Ďthe sound track to their livesí. First dances, first dates and first babies has been our legacy.
For the past couple years Iíve been heading out of town on my own. I play shows at clubs, festivals and at peopleís houses. Iíve been writing songs and recording them. Iím releasing my first batch of solo music in 2012. I am HIMEBAUGH and I like to write and sing songs to make people smile.Ē
This program will air on IPR Studio One Saturday, Feb. 22 at 2 PM. Stay tuned for more Java Blend!
