FRONT RANGE RECORDING ARTIST MIKE SCHIKORA STILL GOING STRONG IN NORTHERN TEXAS!

Past proving he can sustain a living making music and performing live Mike Schikora is continuing to impress and knock the doors down in Texas. Having recently participated in the KHYI 5th Annual Rusty Wier Songwriting competion making it to the final 8, Mike also performed a private RSVP only show for fans who coughed up the fee for a trip down memory lane with music Mike does not normally perform in the bar venues. He did not disappoint! Mike gained new fans with his realistic and recognizable stories behind the songs as well as his talent for hooky melodies that make a listener relate on every level!

“There’s always a challenge to keep it fresh, make every new bread and butter gig to sound unique and keep the crowd interested. You have to take requests, introduce your original tunes at the right moment to keep the audience engaged!” It works and sometimes doesn’t…BUT…the crowds still respond! End of the day Mike continues to keep ‘em interested! “It’s not about me playing what I think is best, it’s about what the audience wants that matters. You give them that, sneak your own tunes in the mix and before you know it, they listen and respond with buying your music!” Then they rebook you!

On deck this spring and summer, Mike has some northwest tours coming up. ALERT: Hey Colorado & Idaho!!!! Major details soon to come once all is confirmed!


Mike pictured playing a show with Mark David Manders. Rod Ballou & Frank Schwieghart, and Justin Till!

Meantime, Mike has been performing all over northern TX doing solo shows at the Rustic, the W Hotel, and his usual watering holes solo and with other solo songwriting pals like Mark David Manders, Jeff Hopson, Fritz Schultz, Bryan Adam Joyner, Rory Payne, Justin Till, Grady Yates, Alex Lease, Russ Lowry, Rod Ballou, Jay Johnson, Greg Hargrove, Prag Padilla, Jud Block, Bryan Adam Joyner, Preston Cole and many others! Mike has also begun recording some new music to add to his music store. Some outside projects with a very talented and industry recognized cowboy poet Frank Schwieghart in the studio as we speak and an indie cable TV project still being written is coming up.

Mike has already recorded three new songs for his next album project making this his 4th full studio album being produced by producers from his 3rd album titled “Horses & Guitars”, Michael Bonagura and Kathie Baillie from the RCA major label group of Baillie and the Boys fame!

Songs about people and situations in his life still dominate his music. “I always say I can’t make it up, I’m inspired by those around me and that’s how I as a songwriter roll!” say Mike.
