Mike Massé is an internationally acclaimed, Ovation-sponsored, acoustic artist. Legends of rock, including Toto, Boston, Sarah McLachlan, Asia, and others have expressed love and gratitude for his renditions of their songs. Toto cites his cover of “Africa” as their favorite.
Mike initially gained notoriety for his performances posted on his widely viewed YouTube channel, https://youtube.com/mikemasse. The success of that channel allowed him to quit his day job as a public defender, and move his family to Denver to become a full-time musician. He can be seen performing at public and private events around the country and the world, including sold-out shows in the U.S. and Europe.
He is a highly regarded acoustic arranger. His arrangements are praised for their originality, creativity, accuracy and simplicity. He is careful to remain true to what is beloved about the original recordings, while bringing his own masterful musical flair to each rendition. He has performed live as a vocalist with former and original members of the band Boston, doing a set of all classic Boston songs, some of the most challenging rock vocals ever recorded.
Mike recently performed an evening of Beatles’ music with his band Rubber Souls, accompanied by the Denver Pops Orchestra. He appeared in a national television commercial for Google, a tribute to Prince that aired during the 2017 Grammies.
