Mike Harwood is a guitarist/songwriter who resides in the West Coast of Cornwall (UK). Started in the music business as a Decca (Deram) Records artist and session guitarist. Music style is described as warm funk for a cold day, combines elements of fusion, smooth funk, soul, blues and acid jazz... Music inspires the soul - something I have always tried to achieve in my songs and in the way I play, it's more about the feel than technical ability or tricks. The album: BooBoo, features vocals by yours truly and also some fabulous collaborators and lead vocalists: Markus Wagner, Dyan B, John Keenan and BV's by Dyan B, Paul Racicot and Keith Foster.
Freedom of expression, joy, inspiration, tension release, satisfaction. Since the early age of 5! I have loved music, it's what makes me tick. Had my first guitar at the age of 8 but never really got to start playing seriously until I was introduced to a guitar tutor to give me some pointers at 13 and then pretty much self taught learning what I could from meeting other musicians.
A bit late in life now to have any big dreams but it would be an achievement to have a major artist/film make use of one of my compositions, so I just like to share my skills and the music the I write.
Eradicate famine and poverty! There is more than enough wealth in the world to share with those less fortunate and make the world a better place.
