Michigan songwriter Mike Vial writes songs about love and life's transitions, and his vocal style shows the influence of James Taylor and Ari Hest. But his accomplished guitar playing has a voice of its own, mixing elements of jazz, folk, and rock. Out on the road once more, Mike is taking Mike Gentry along for the ride. Mike started out playing guitar at Dexter High School, worked for years at A&M in Los Angeles, and came home to Michigan. He's appeared at Plymouth Coffee Bean, Black Fire Winery, Crazy Wisdom Bookstore and Tea Room, Dearborn Brewing, and many other venues. "I pitched to him the idea to tour together this summer like old folk artists did in the 60s!" Vial says. The Mikes will complete a tour of one-night stands with suitcases and guitars in hand, with Mike performing with his band, Chickenwire Canoe, and ending shows as a duo. Their musical partnership feels fated, since Gentry produced Vial's ambitious album "A World That's Bigger."
