Storytellers are the heart and soul of songwriting. The combination of the written word and an acoustic guitar has been at the core of folk music for decades, and Mike Powell follows in that tradition.

The stage is where Powell thrives. He not only delivers stories in song, but also engages the audience with the narrative behind the writing of the music. His songs are relatable and connect with the audience whether it’s in an intimate listening room, over craft beer in a brewery tap room or speaking to larger audiences on a festival stage.
