Artist Mike Lee Proves to be a Fighter… In More Ways Than One
Singer/songwriter and mixed martial arts trainer Mike Lee has been traveling coast to coast with his band over the last 2 years, and they are just getting started.
Mike’s last album, All I Need, was named #8 of the year by CCM Magazine. That album captured quiet moments from a difficult season for Mike, in which his father was diagnosed with lung cancer. For a year and a half, while balancing family, recording, touring and leading worship at his home church in Indiana, Mike walked with his father though his cancer fight. Then, in July, Mike’s father passed away.
In the months following the loss of his father, Mike turned to the Lord, and to music. He released five brand new singles in 2016, co-written and produced by Rusty Varenkamp (Kristian Stanfill, Jason Gray, Building 429) and Cody Norris from Ed Cash Studio (Chris Tomlin, David Crowder, Kari Jobe).
“I started playing guitar to be like my dad,” says Mike. “In this season, I wanted to write the best songs of my life. With the help of our amazingly talented friends in Nashville, we’ve done that, and it’s been a blast to share these songs with audiences around the country.”
