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 EP, 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. And in summer of 2017, he is set to release his first full length project, Worth It. The album will feature songs co-written and produced by Rusty Varenkamp (Kristian Stanfill, Jason Gray, Building 429), Seth Mosley (For King and Country, Mat Kearney, Bethel Music) 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 some amazingly talented friends in Nashville, I believe we’ve done that. And more so, it’s been an absolute blast to share these songs with audiences around the country.”
