MiZ is a soulful, Rock-Americana artist from northeast Pennsylvania who is known as a skillful and well rounded master of both acoustic and electric guitar. His sound is directly impacted by the coal mining region of PA and the songs evoke the rustic tones and imagery you would expect from the region and its cultural heritage.
The singer/songwriter/guitarist Mike Mizwinski gives name to the band and his solo work and it is his heart and soul — poured into the words and his guitar — that drives it all forward. We use the term singer/songwriter loosely here, as a MiZ show can feature fast, intricate instrumental guitar compositions, foot-stomping bluegrass, soulful ballads, creative covers and a melting pot of different styles, textures, flavors and feels that make up the catalog (over four albums’ worth) of self-penned songs. Mike has maintained a freshness, a vibe, something, that keeps fans coming back for more.
MiZ has opened for America, The Wallflowers, Derek Trucks Band, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Blues Traveler, Shawn Colvin, Lyle Lovett, Leon Russell, Railroad Earth and many more.
