Mike Kanne is a Tucson resident, and a family man who makes his living working with his hands. Music is his creative passion, and although he doesn't play many live shows, or live a life on the road, Mike Kanne loves to write songs.
Kanne says that his guitar playing career began after years of playing and composing on piano and trumpet. A friend left a battered guitar behind after a jam session, and Kanne became hooked on playing it after only a few days. He says that the speed and relative ease of composing on a six-string gave him an exciting new perspective on songwriting.
