Those who have seen Mike J Tompkins perform wouldn’t be reluctant to say that he puts on a show, swinging from the chandelier while still being able to pull off his parts musically.
Mike was born in Vancouver B.C. and raised on central Vancouver Island, his music roots began with the on-line purchase of a BC Rich electric guitar. He was self-taught and dedicated himself to learning and perfecting his skills through playing along by ear to recordings of classic rock, R&B, and funk.
Mike has managed to adapt a wide variety of genres into his music. Influences ranging from blues, rock n’ roll, funk, hip-hop, Motown, folk, gospel and back again. Mike has been a sought after guitar player in many different bands and performance showcases. After studying music and performing in Nelson B.C. for three years he is now based out of central Vancouver island.
He has recently finished recording his first E.P. ‘Bring Me In’ with Risque Disque Records. He will be touring in support of it in the spring of 2016.
