Mike Cerveni, hailing from Windsor, Ontario, started playing guitar at the age of 11. Heavily influenced by his extremely musical family, he started writing his own songs at the age of 16. Mike’s sound is soulful, and speaks to the heart. His voice is pure, and you can feel the emotion when he sings every note.
“The World You Know” is Mike’s debut album, released in autumn of 2010 featuring songs such as “On Your Mark,” “Right Now,” and “A Moment.” The album “The World You Know” is about coping and getting through loss. We all have tough times, and go through heartache, for Mike, writing was a way to help get out things he couldn’t express.
With the debut of his music video “Right Now” (a song he wrote for his Mother during her battle with cancer), he has consistently gained exposure from radio and television. Mike has had several radio interviews along with his television appearance on CTV.
“I wrote ‘Right Now’ during my Mom’s battle with cancer a few years ago. It was a tough period for everyone and for me, I didn’t really know how to express how I felt about the whole situation. I wrote two songs in dedication of her, ‘Right Now’ and ‘A Miracle’.
Shortly after the release of his debut music video “Right Now”, Mike flew to Serbia to perform a show at a venue called “Club Underground”.
“It was a great opportunity to perform over there. I met a lot of awesome people and can’t wait to go back. I’ve had many requests to perform at other venues so I’m looking forward to going back next summer.”
Currently, Mike is working with the Canadian Cancer Society and other alike organizations to help share his music in any way he can.
