Mike Massé

Mike Massé is an internationally acclaimed artist and arranger who performs epic acoustic classic rock. He is a YouTube icon with over 160 million channel views. Legends of rock like Toto, Boston, Sarah McLachlan, Styx, Rush, Berlin, Asia, and others have expressed love and gratitude for his acoustic renditions of their songs. Toto cites his acoustic cover of “Africa” as their favorite.  

Mike initially gained notoriety for his performances posted on his widely viewed YouTube channel. The success of that channel allowed him to quit his day job as a public defender after 13 years and move his family to Denver to become a full-time musician who performs around the world.

Mike’s acoustic 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.

His YouTube success has led to other musical opportunities, like singing with original members of the band Boston doing a set of all classic Boston songs, some of the most challenging rock vocals ever recorded.

Mike and his Beatles band Rubber Souls have presented a show of Beatles’ music accompanied by the Denver Pops Orchestra, recreating the authentic orchestral arrangements to the delight of audiences of all ages. He appeared in a national television commercial for Google, a tribute to Prince that aired during the Grammys. His famous cover of Toto’s “Africa” was parodied on TBS’ “American Dad,” officially making Mike Massé and Jeff Hall a pop culture reference.

Mike continues to perform his unique brand of epic acoustic classic rock at public concerts and private events around the US and abroad on his quest to “cover the music, cover the world.”  Mike is sponsored by Ovation Guitars, Roland, Wild Dog Stomp, AirTurn, and Black Mountain Picks.
