About Us

With over 30 years experience, with music in many different facets, Mike Mckendry has evolved into an Original NZ Folk artist, with over 35 songs written and recorded. His music has reached a wide and diverse audience over the years, from the USA to Sydney Australia, having performed extensively in both countries. Mike donates his time now to songwriting and performing in venues in his home town, from rest homes to pubs, churches, markets, private functions and more.

Major artists who have had a significant influence on his style and delivery, are John Denver, Neil Diamond & Elton John. Mike has also been interested in early blues artists, from Robert Johnson to Jimi Hendrix, having studied these blues artists that were prototypes, he has adapted some of the elements from this other genre of music, and applied it to some of the songs he has written over the years.
