Singer/songwriter Mike Scala was born in Brooklyn, New York. By age 17, he hit the underground jazz and rock scene performing at venues across New York and Los Angeles such as CBGB's, Troubadour, and Viper Room. From busking in the subways to performing at SXSW, Mohegan Sun, and Musikfest, Scala established his presence in the scene.
With the new additions of Dan Vosk (Guitar), Marcus Miller (Saxophone), and Luke Capon (Bass), the group has developed a prolific, easy listening sound crossing rock, jazz, and pop. In 2009, the band embarked on a world tour across the U.S., Europe, Australia, and New Zealand and again in 2011/12 performing in over 75 cities and selling over 26,000 albums independently. Their songs Fallin, Home, and Lead Me have well over 250,000 youtube hits combined. On their tours they have had the opportunity to work with bands such as The John Butler Trio, Alien Ant Farm, The Coronas, Mr. Hudson, 311, and many more.
The group also known for their sense of adventure performed a “world first” concert on the Franz Josef Glacier on the South Island of New Zealand which gained the attention of international media and have been featured on National TV stations such as RTE and ABC across the world. Recently, the group teamed up with indie label Soulsearch Records to release their new album, “Heart On A String”. The record has an upbeat, feel good, easy listening vibe to it while incorporating catchy melodies, harmonies, and orchestration while staying true to the roots of their songwriting.
In 2009, Scala established the Mike Scala Foundation for Youth, an organization that provides aid and educational opportunities for at-risk youth across the U.S. and developing countries. The organization has worked with UNICEF, YMCA, Big Brothers and Big Sisters, YWCA, and The American Cancer Society. He also founded musician alliances around the world in order to provide mentoring and music programs for youth in need.
