Deep bass grooves, bluesy guitars, funky percussion and the exotic sounds of kalimbas, bodhrans and didgeridoos converge... where the Outback meets the Delta. Mike Starling's cool blue instrumental grooves have been featured on soundtracks on the Discovery Channel, Animal Planet, Travel Channel, A&E, MTV, Biography and many more.
Starling got his musical start in the Mississippi River college town of La Crosse, Wisconsin, playing bass in bands like Buzz Butler, the Mall Weirdos and the Joe Price blues trio. These days his main focus is composing and producing music for soundtracks and other recording projects.
