Mike Zito Info
Blues Music Award winner Mike Zito is one of those rare talents who can sing like nobody's business, can write gripping songs, can play one hell of a mean Gulf Coast style guitar, and has the stage presence to draw in any audience. Born and raised in St. Louis, MO, Mike grew up listening to Van Halen and Led Zepplin, and later he became interested in the great blues men who hailed from in and around St. Louis.
Like many great musicians, Mike lived a rugged life. Homelessness, addiction, criminal behavior he reached his rock bottom before cleaning up and landing in Texas where he's lived, sober, ever since. But he remembers his past and draws inspiration from his life experiences, weaving them into his guitar and vocal styles while delivering raw tone and pure grit with powerful emotion. Mike has won two Blues Music Awards, for 2009's Pearl River and 2011's Greyhound.
