Mike Carew

"Canada's most prolific unknown songwriter"
Born in Lachine, Quebec, Mike began writing music at twelve and performing at fifteen. Influenced by alternative, if not quirky, Blues, Folk and Country musicians and lyricists, Mike focused on developing his own voice and style after moving to Boston in 1984. He relocated to Vancouver in 1994.
Recording since 1989, Mike has produced 24 CD’s: Just Me (’89), Underture (’90), Can and Does (’91), After All (’92), Becoming One (’93), Don’t Say Those Words (’94), Even (’96), Frustration (’96), Gone Sane (’97), Having Fun Still: Should Have Been Greatest Hits Volume I (’97) Innocence Twisted (’98), Kicked (’00), Live (’01), Mining for Meaning (’02), No Caption Required (’03), Open Mike (’04), People Stories (’05), Quoi (’06), Rare (’07), Surrender to Saturation (’08), Tunes Started in a Pub (’09), “Void of Conscience” (’10), “When, When is Now” & “Xenophobic” (’11).

Presently working on “Yesterdays Filled With Tomorrow’s” scheduled release date fall 2012

All recordings features Mike’s trademark storytelling and observational lyrics. His songs don’t go down standard roads musically or lyrically, so while his material is derived from current events – political or personal – Carew’s songs aren’t written to get a point across. Instead, they are intended to provoke thought, generate questions … and to maybe push a few buttons.
