Front Range Records recording artist Mike Schikora is "taking root and rising" in the North Texas music scene!

The brother and sisterhood of the growing singer/songwriter circuit in northern Texas is not only growing in popularity, but becoming a union and family of artists taking the region by storm. The "Colorado Cowboy" as his TX family, friends, songwriters and fans know him by... is in it! BOOT DEEP!

Mike Schikora, who comes from Montana, who was a staff songwriter in Nashville, raised horses in Colorado has been making a permanent mark on the Texas music scene since the release of his last album "Horses & Guitars" in 2013!

Mike has become immersed in the singer/songwriter circuit all over TX. His music and voice has captured the heart of many of his comrades and fans!

Mike has a very busy summer ahead of him in 2014. Building an audience takes time and dedication...and persistence. He's kept the same venues entertained every month for over two years and not only do the same people continue to come back, they bring friends who continue to come back. What is happening is the old fashioned business of, entertaining! Mike will tell you, "It's never about me when I'm out there in front of an audience, be it 2 or 2,000! It's about what they want! I love it when I connect to an audience!" Recently Mike played at one of his favorite watering holes in Fairview, TX and he helped break the record in sales and volume since the venue opened!

In addition to playing all over TX, Mike got a chance to open for country star Chely Wright at the 2014 Long Beach Pride event held in Long Beach CA in mid May. "I loved it, it was so nice to be a part of a great event, and to top it off open and meet Chely Wright! Her story is an amazing one! I also embraced the chance to get my music out in front of a new audience. It worked! I made new friends AND I got invited back for next year!"

Mike is performing with shows this summer with notable TX artists, established and rising! In May, Mike performed with Zach Coffey, a native Oklahoma artist who's currently tearing up the Texas Music Charts. On July 4th, Mike is teaming up with an award winning 'prophet' of songwriters and 2005 Texas Music Awards Male vocalist winner, Jay Johnson! Also in July Mike performs with Texas Music Awards "2013 Female vocalist of the year" & "2014 Entertainer of the year" Aubrey Lynn England! This August, Mike is performing with his SXSW tour mate, great friend and songwriting legend in TX, Mark David Manders! Throughout the year Mike also performs shows as a back up vocalist and sometimes as a duo with his radio tour roadmate and good friend Rory Payne.

Mike also recorded back up vocals on 3 new album projects released earlier this Spring. Sean Franks & Chapter 11 "Redneck To The Bone", Tyler Rodgers Band "The Other Side" and Bryan Adam Joyner "Just Me"! Coming soon is Rory Payne's sophomore album project coming out in July. Mike has also set some time aside to begin recording new music in Nashville this August with his "Horses & Guitars" producers Michael Bonagura & Kathie Baillie.

Hard to keep up, but the music and energy keeps flowing as Mike Schikora continues to follow his path and live the dream!
