Mike Breen began his musical career in Chadds Ford, Pennsylvania playing guitar and singing bluegrass music with his best friend Kenny Thompson. After a few years at Penn State University playing with the Magnificent Truckstop Band Mike moved to Phoenix, Arizona and immediately got a gig in a folk duo called 'Smith and Breen' performing at the Salt Cellar restaurant. During this time Mike met many musicians and songwriters including Darcie Deaville with whom he collaborated on stage and in the studio and co-wrote her Kerrville winning song 'Icy Barrel of a Loaded Gun.’
Mike released 2 Cds in the nineties "No Excuses" and "Past Lives" to critical acclaim. Also, during this period of time Mike got his first b bender telecaster which would eventually lead him to write and record a ground breaking CD called 'Mescal Mary and Other B Bender Guitar Instrumentals.'
The 1990's found Mike freelancing with various bands as well as playing guitar for country stars that would come through town including Jessi Colter (with whom he recorded tracks for her "Out Of The Ashes" CD produced by Don Was) as well as releasing more of his own work including "Apartment Living" which included some of Mike's most compelling songs.
Over the years Mike has gained an enthusiastic following for his "story songs" and has been a finalist in many songwriter competitions including The Tucson Folk Festival.
