ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
It was at the age of 13 when Mike Roberts first scavenged through his basement to find his father’s old Les Paul guitar, and within the first few moments of taking that guitar out of it’s case he realized what his life would soon become. It wasn’t more than a year after he started playing when he first hit the local music scene. He sold out bars and clubs, and started gigging frequently around the Syracuse area. His life immediately become 100% devoted to music. During the time from when he would come home from school, to before his shows later in the night, he would spend his afternoons practicing, listening, and studying the music of blues and rock legends such as B.B. King, Lightnin’ Hopkins, T-Bone Walker, Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, Duane Allman, Jimmie Vaughan, Doyle Bramhall II, Derek Trucks and a long list of others. Amazed with the soul of the old blues and roots music, but moved by the power of 60’s era rock, Mike would soon manufacture his own sound compiling all of these influences.

The year 2009 saw the creation of The Mike Roberts Band, consisting of brothers Brett and Corey Hobin, whom are the son's of 1970's rock icon Todd Hobin, both of which have a lifetime of experience touring, recording, and have been apart of a family of legendary musicians. The recording of the band's first self titled EP to be released this September 2009. While the new album not only showcases Mike’s musical talent and songwriting, it showcases his abilities as a producer and the chief mixing engineer. The new band was barely a month old before hitting the music circuit hard already sharing the stage with names such as Pat Travers and Kim Simmonds, as well as receiving local radio airplay. Mike is a part of every aspect of his music by managing himself and recording and releasing his music independently.

Mike has gained experience working for live sound production companies as well as in engineering in the studio, both of which with national acts. Now 17 years old, he is currently attending the Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA to further his education as a producer and sound engineer and is has a limited schedule available for booking throughout the north east.
