Mikel Lander has been playing across Arizona since he was 17 years old. He has backed up such local greats as Scotty Spenner and Paris James. Mikel has always remained firmly rooted in acoustic music in his live performances as well as his writing.
Whether acoustic or electric, Lander runs the gamut of blues and American music styling. It is easy to hear songwriting influences from the mountains to the swamps, and from the church house to the train yards. He brings his own flavor to the table, drawing from his life experiences to write honest, thought-provoking songs: some acoustic and pretty, and some whiskey soaked electric stomps.
