Mike Silver

Born in 1945, singer/songwriter Mike Silver was influenced by a variety of musicians as a child, from the '50s pop of Lonnie Donegan, Buddy Holly, and Phil Harris that his older brothers liked to blues players like Blind Lemon Jefferson and Muddy Waters to the British garage band the Preachers to fingerpickers like Gerry Lockran. He first tried playing the guitar at age nine, but it wasn't until age 14 that he got one of his own, and from that moment on Silver was constantly involved in music with a variety of different groups in both London and Kent. In 1973 he signed to Elton John's Rocket Recordings, released albums, and toured around Europe and North America. Eventually he settled in Launceston, Cornwall, and in 2006 his sixth album, Heaven in Mind, came out. ~ Marisa Brown
