What happens when a Michigan-born singer-songwriter with a soulful voice and a penchant for songcraft teams up with a talent-laden powerhouse jam band known for its musicianship and stirring live performances? Well, you get Mike Struwin & Rootsdown.
Struwin, who began playing music at the age of 13, has long been a
force in the regional music scenes of Portland, Oregon, and Southwest Michigan, for lyrics and music imbued with a sense of honesty, empathy and authenticity.

The St. Joseph, Mich., native released his first CD at
age 17, and his passion for guitar playing and songwriting has only
grown with age. To date, he has released seven solo albums, including “Out of the Blue” (2002), “Roots Down” (2005), and “Storyline” (2009), each anchored by his fiery tenor voice and carefully crafted songs that slip and slide through the genres of roots rock, alt-country, and Memphis soul.
