Critically acclaimed for his unique orchestrations and “rich sonic palette,” Mike Wojniak is a prolific songwriter who began writing for his first band when he was 14 and hasn’t stopped since. His fourth full length album, Ad Astra, includes a wide variety of instrumentation including viola, cello, flute, trombone, synthesizers and guitars. Prior to this album, Mike released three full-length albums independently, Follow the Crane (2008), Memento Vivere (2010), and Libero (2012); as well as a 4-song EP, Anima Mundi (2014) with the San Diego-based record label, Golden Wave Records. Mike’s latest single, Sail Away, has been praised by critics as a “masterful” composition that is “elegant” and “perfectly balanced” with “positively haunting” vocals and “sweeping cello notes.”
Mike is a seasoned performer who can often be seen gracing stages of all sizes across Southern California when he is not on tour. Having shared the stage with acts such as Patrick Watson, Red Wanting Blue, and Denison Witmer, Mike frequently tours as a solo artist, both domestically and internationally. Audiences delight in Mike’s masterful guitar playing, gorgeous vocals, and artful looping. Wherever he goes, Mike finds inspiration in his connections with the people and places he encounters, often composing early drafts of what later become his favorite songs while on the road.
