Mike Aiken Well-traveled Virginia songwriter and sea captain, Mike Aiken, may have been born in the wrong century. An inner sense of chivalry oozes from every story he tells and every song he sings. Aiken has drawn tales - and hope - from “trail riders, aging rodeo champs, sea captains, Rastafarians and outlaws” to craft a treasure chest of tunes that draws these independent spirits together. Mike delivers toe-tapping, roots grooves, finger-picking and slide guitar. With Amy Aiken, percussion and sweet harmonies add to the groove. If anybody has earned the title of WAYWARD TROUBADOUR, Mike has. He ran away as a kid to play music, he became a licensed USCG Captain, he has sailed over 30,000 bluewater miles on his own sailboat and logged countless miles on the road performing in North American and Europe.
