McGonigel's Mucky Duck presents Mike Stinson.
"Virginian Mike Stinson's vibrant take on old-school honky tonk music has made him perhaps the leading L.A. light of the moment…he's a formidable songsmith…" Chris Morris — Billboard Magazine
Mike Stinson's style of music will never fade away or become passe because the truth is never out-of-date. Mike writes memorable heart-bleeding tales laced with pain, humor and regret, describing his straightforward sound as "Tear-in-your-beer honky-tonk and barnyard rock and roll." He's the rare artist who doesn't know how to be anything but true to himself. There is no pretense, no bullshit, not a damn thing between you and what's in Mike's heart. His distinctive voice isn't like anything you've ever heard before, and that's a good thing. He means what he sings. Mike delivers the message in such a uniquely authentic way, you're not gonna forget what he has to say anytime soon.
Mike's lyrics touch torn-up heartstrings and you know he understands. "Everybody's got their own shit to worry about, and they don't have to deal with the black cloud you're carryin' around. So I try not to do that with people…but I do it in my songs."
