He didn't know he could sing back then but his teacher apparently did. At 15 Mike LeBlanc entered a local singing contest and took everyone by surprise with his covers of Randy Travis. From that point on he was asked frequently do to amateur shows and house parties. At 17, he joined his first band and played all over the province and into USA.
In 1999, Mike LeBlanc packed his instruments and his clothes and headed towards Calgary Alberta to see what the music industry had to offer. He was hired by a band called Uptown Riders three days upon his arrival to the big city. The band toured all over western Canada for a few years. In 2005 Mike decided it was time to step back and take a break from the music scene for a little while. He still did karaoke and house parties and jams around town but just needed a break.
In 2011 Mike LeBlanc started writing songs such as "when I'm good" and "We lived on", it seemed like he had figured out how to write a good song after all these years of writers block.
