In 2008 at aged 18, with an ignited confidence after winning the ‘Youth Music’ National competition, Preston-born Singer/songwriter, Mike Dignam independently wrote, recorded and released his debut LP ‘World of Our Own’.
The release was the catalyst for the organic recruitment and growth of an army of fans. Engaged with Mike’s music and journey they supported him as he was invited to perform at ‘Rock in the Park’ alongside JLS, Tiao Cruz and Mr. Hudson, embarked on a UK tour with Gabrielle Aplin and fuelled the release of his second offering; a live acoustic EP.
The development continued through 2011 and 2012 as Mike joined Joe Brooks, Elliot Minor, Nick Harper, Roachford and Kate McGill on UK tours, culminating in an invite to perform at the Rockness festival with Paolo Nutini, The Wombats, Katy B and Lucy Rose.
Writing credits came thick and fast as Mike was invited to write with the ‘Steelworks’ team, ‘The Invisible Men’, Janet Devlin and co-wrote The Mend’s (Britain’s Got Talent finalist’s) debut single; “Where Were You”. Rounding off the year, Mike was asked to support Lewis Watson on his sold-out UK tour.
Mike’s second studio EP and his third release; ‘Paint’, triggered a nomadic European tour as he traveled the record through street performances and pop-up gigs from the UK and onto the mainland, passing through France, Brussels, Germany and Austria. Upon his return to the UK he was invited to tour with Lawson on their 18-date, UK & Ireland sell-out arena tour.
Sponsorship offers from Fly53 and an endorsement by Hofner Guitars (joining the likes of Sir Paul McCartney) reinforced that Mike, through his music and loyalty to his fans, was becoming an artist of credibility and noteworthiness. With a passion for sharing his music with his fans, Mike released a third studio EP, ‘Young’.
With the new studio record set for release in the summer, a June/July tour in partnership with local HMV stores, festival performances and a 15-date headline tour of the UK & Ireland, 2013 continues to go from strength to strength for Mike Dignam, making him an artist to take note of.
