Mike Dawes is an English guitarist known for composing, arranging and performing multiple parts simultaneously on a single guitar. He is regarded as one of the world's most creative modern fingerstyle guitarists with a repertoire spanning original viral videos and popular arrangements, alongside mainstream chart success performing with Justin Hayward of The Moody Blues. 

His debut release, a solo guitar arrangement of Gotye's "Somebody That I Used To Know," quickly became a viral hit with tens of millions of views on YouTube, a success duplicated and expanded upon numerous times since with songs like "One," "The Impossible" and "Jump" across multiple video platforms.

Mike is featured on multiple Justin Hayward live releases including Spirits…Live, which debuted at #2 on the US Billboard Chart. Dawes also has a strong reputation as an educator, acting as a columnist for Guitar World and acoustic guitar magazines as well as teaching guitar masterclasses all over the world, creating apps, publishing degree level literature, appearing as a TV judge on SKY TV's "Guitar Star," and more.

His third studio album, Galactic Acid, will be released in August.


A Tampa native and North Carolina resident, Christie Lenée took First Place at the International Fingerstyle Guitar Championship in 2017, was voted Acoustic Guitarist of the Year by England's MusicRadar in 2019, and was named one of the "Best Acoustic Guitarists in the World Right Now" by Guitar World in 2020.

Her most recent album, Coming Alive, with its iconic guitar hooks and powerhouse vocal performances, is a giant leap forward for Lenée. She decided to make everything bigger, brighter, and more electric. The album, her sixth, is a chronicle of joy and hope, of self-confidence and empowerment, of renewal and light.
