Welcome! Thanks for visiting!
Mike Spine has worked as a musician, teacher and humanitarian for the last 20 years.
Since 2002 he has fronted the high energy rock/punk rock band At the Spine and played hundreds of shows across the US and Europe.
While living in Portland, OR in 1996 and playing in the punk rock band The Help, he founded Global Seepej Records, which was inspired by independent labels like Dischord Records (D.C.), Sub Pop (Seattle), etc., but with more of a leaning towards supporting artists involved with issues of social, economic and environmental justice.
In 2012, Mike coordinated the recording and release of the 5th and self titled album for At the Spine, and the debut album for the folk/folk rock/Americana band The Beautiful Sunsets, titled Coalminers & Moonshiners. He also spent a few years accidentally fronting the Crazy Horse inspired Neil Young tribute The My My Hey Heys, and has played in numerous other NW bands (The Plains, Colin Spring, Titanium Sporkestra, etc.).
Since revisiting his “folk rock” and “Americana” roots when he formed The Beautiful Sunsets in 2010, he has often been performing material as a duo or trio, reconstituting At the Spine when the right occasions arise.
Since 2012, Mike has been touring extensively, performing in Asia, Europe, Central and South America, Australia and North America.
Since 2014, he has primarily been living and performing in Europe.
