Mike & Amy Aiken
Mike & Amy Aiken’s music can be described as Americana, Folk and Roots with an ocean view.
Mike Aiken’s vast treasure chest of experiences and mastery of varied stringed instruments have contributed to a catalogue of music that cannot be defined by one genre or style.
This well-traveled Virginia songwriter and sea captain may have been born in the wrong century. Aiken has drawn tales – and hope – from trail riders, aging rodeo champs, sea captains, Rastafarians and outlaws, to craft tunes that draw the threads of these independent spirits together.
Amy Aiken, Mike’s musical and adventuring partner from stage to sea, brings her own sincerity and personality to the duo, delivering sweet harmony vocals and tasty percussion.
Each is a licensed US Coast Guard Captain, has sailed over 30,000 blue-water miles, and logged countless miles on the road performing in North America and Europe.
Together they have also logged seven studio albums, one first-round Grammy nomination, #1 and #13 in Europe, five songs Top 25 US charts.
