Voted Best Blues Artist of 2011 by Global Thunda Network, Mike De Velta's energetic performances push slide guitar into another dimension. Modern and traditional Blues played on resonator, lap and acoustic guitars. With work hardened vocals and rack mount harmonica, Mike de Velta is a true favourite amongst Blues aficionados.
Uplifting, meaningful Blues and Roots from this Western Australian artist. Breaking through with a new breed of slide guitar and impassioned vocals.
Typically associated with the Australian Blues and Roots movement Mike De Velta’s compositions and performances are constantly on the move. A rich and energetic showcase splashed with a hint of the oriental, expressed through the shimmering and delightful tones of lap slide, resonator, electric and acoustic guitars.
His signature slide weeps with expression, magnetic vocals are delivered with passion and honesty. A melting pot and strange brew of all that is sweet in the age of modern blues.
His latest production "Press On!" features guests Paul Walter Daly on harmonica, John Wilson on upright bass (who has toured and recorded with Dave Hole), Dani Soli and John Sydney McNair on electric bass, and Dean Wuksta on drums.
Currently living near Fremantle in Western Australia Mike regularly performs as a solo and with his band having shared the stage with a string of National and International acts.
