Singer/songwriter Mike Giacolino left behind a normal life (Career, wife, a house in the suburbs) when he made the decision to live by his creative pursuits. The culmination of one decision after another steered Giacolino from a traditional sort of life to that of a troubadour.
He started honing his craft and spent time touring the world with friend and colleague Brandi Carlile while also experimenting with his own material inspired by the folk music of Townes Van Zandt, John Prine, and Mississippi John Hurt.
Mike then began playing around Seattle as a solo artist but soon was attracting some of the city’s finest players. Through time came the creation of his band, HYWAYS. Being Seattle’s foremost Cosmic-Country group, they have been featured on KEXP, KBCS, and have shared the stage with White Buffalo, Robert Ellis, The Proclaimers, and many more.
