Mike McKenzie (he/him) is a singer, songwriter and producer based in Edinburgh. In 2019 he won BBC Radio Scotland’s ‘Singer/Songwriter of the Year’ and went on to play some of Scotland’s most iconic venues including King Tut’s, The Queen’s Hall and Scotland's biggest music festival TRNSMT.


While the live sector struggled throughout the pandemic in 2020 he reverted back to focussing on songwriting building a solid reputation as a collaborator as well as developing his own sound as a solo artist, landing somewhere between Tom Odell, David Gray, Luke Sital-Singh and Ben Abraham.


Described as “Gorgeous” by Jo Whiley on BBC Radio 2 and "Absolutely Stunning” by Grant Stott on BBC Radio Scotland McKenzies honest, heartfelt lyrics are always front and centre in his music.


The Last couple of years have seen Mike focus on touring, playing in multiple cities around the UK as well as two sold out shows at Sneaky Pete’s in Edinburgh. He also co-curated Sofar Edinburgh’s Pride Show and performed on BBC Radio Scotland’s iconic live music show ‘The Quay Sessions’ with Roddy Hart for their Edinburgh Fringe Special.


Alongside multiple collaborative releases coming out throughout 2024, Mike is currently working on his debut album with Marty Hailey at Metro 13 Studios in Edinburgh, set for release in 2025.

Outside of his solo work, Mike also provides vocals for collaborative studio outfit ‘PJ Moore & Co.’ with legendary synth player PJ Moore (The Blue Nile) and  composer/producer Malcolm Lindsay.
