MiZ is a soulful, Rock-Americana artist from Northeast Pennsylvania who is know as an acoustic and electric guitar virtuoso. 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 it's 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. In the last year MiZ has opened for Derek Trucks Band, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Blues Traveler, Shawn Colvin, Lyle Lovett, Leon Russell, Railroad Earth and many more. Mike has played over 450 shows since 2010 spanning from Berlin Germany -Northern Canada - Los Angeles - Austin, Texas - New York City and everywhere in between. This summer proved to be one of the most rewarding times in the artist's career as MiZ was invited to play the Allman Brother's- Peach Festival, and the Gathering of the Vibes in Bridgeport CT, amongst many others. Mike is now endorsing Framus/Warwick guitars and won the Tri-State Indie "Acoustic Artist of the Year" award two years in a row- 2011 & 2012.
