My name is Mike Ayley but you can call me MIKE A or MIKEH if you’re a proud Canadian like me! I’ve got years of experience in the music industry as a member of the band Marianas Trench. I also have a solo project release, Golden Hour, First Things First, which is the creative outlet that saved me from losing my mind during 2020/2021.
