When one of the oldest continuously running blues societies in the world says you're the 'real deal', that has to mean something. When blues forums toss your name around with the likes of harmonica masters like Little Walter, Jr. Wells & Sonny Boy...that has to mean something. Of course, there will always be skeptics; but to blues fans throughout the country, there is no doubt that at just 32 years old, Mikey Junior is chasing the masters at a pace that's frightening. Growing up on the tough streets of Trenton, New Jersey, and now residing in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, Mikey Junior is a self-taught prodigy. With his impressivecollection of vintage, records, tapes, CD's and videos, Mikey spent the better part of his youth immersing himself in the world of blues music. By the time he was twenty-one he was already a road-tested player making even ardent blues purists take notice. Since that time, Mikey Junior has released an impressive eight CD releases as well as a documentary DVD. He's been praised by blues societies as well as players for his original take on 'old school' styles and his latest release, 'It Ain't Hard To Tell' is being hailed as a watershed effort by the blues community. Mikey Junior never set out to re-write the pages of blues history, but through his true love of the music and his undying dedication to the masters that came before him, it seems all but certain that Mikey Junior will scribe his name in the annals of blues history - right alongside the very masters that influence his every performance.
