After his parents were driven mad from the sounds, noises, and other strange audible signals emanating from his car seat, they decided to focus his musical energy into something constructive and signed him up for church choir at the age of five, and drum lessons at age seven. Hauser has since participated in numerous choirs, musicals, orchestral, marching, symphonic, and jazz bands studying under Joe Nero at the University of the Arts.
Mike decided to enter the pop scene and use his eclectic experience to write unconventional arrangements akin to 60âs innovators such as Brian Wilson, McCartney, and Brian Eno while incorporating modern sounds of subtractive synthesis into his folk-pop roots. As a result, Hauser went on to participate on American Idol, open for acts such as 2 Chainz, Drake Bell, and Vacationer, and self-produce his debut EP âMemories on Polaroidâ.
In addition to his solo career, Mike is a founding member of the indie-rock band The Radiographers- playing guitar, synth, and singing/songwriting alongside Devin Ganey, drummer for Kai Orion, organist/vocalist for Elizabeth II, and producer for numerous artists.
Mike Hauser and his backing band are currently playing shows in the DC area, cultivating their local fan base before branching out to other areas of the globe.
