Mike Mullins has been a regular fixture on the California acoustic music scene for over 30 years. He toured and recorded with notable bands and musicians including master fiddler Phil Salazar, The Acousticats, The Cache Valley Drifters, fiddler/banjoist Dennis Caplinger, The Hay Dudes, Phil Salazar and the Kin Folk, and The Tom Corbett Trio. In 2014, Mike released his first solo project, “Windows of Time,” a compendium of guitar and mandolin Americana styles showcasing Mike's original material over a 25 year span, produced by David West. Summers find Mike performing annually at the KCBX Live Oak Music Festival with the Cache Valley Drifters, and as an artist-in-residence at the annual Mandolin Symposium, instructing classes with such luminaries as Symposium founders David Grisman and Mike Marshall. Mike resides in Westlake Village, CA, with his wife, Laura.




"I just received Mike Mullins' new CD "Windows of Time." It is a fabulous convocation of local genius which reaches a critical artistic mass and explodes into the hearts and souls of its listeners.This is Old Magic and powerful, with incredible musicians like Joe Craven, Phil Salazar, David West, Tom Lee, Penny Nichols, Tim Mullins, Gabe Witcher, Tom Corbett, and more. I'm not an endorser of products, but I believe the arts support us and we should return the favor. I sent a paypal payment to Mike and had a signed CD the next day... For my musician friends (especially the pickers) WOW. For my poet friends, every song is an act of unmitigated love. For my writer friends, here is inspiration. For the painters, a glimpse of what you're trying to say. For the actors, what you need inside is here. For the singers, you will think, "At Last." Get this for your soul, and for those who need a lifting of the spirit. Wow, maybe I am and endorser of products after all. My strongest recommendation."
