Best known as the founder of Britain’s number one blues record label, Blue Horizon, Mike Vernon is musical royalty.

As a producer, he has made records for everyone from Eric Clapton, Fleetwood Mac and Muddy Waters to John Mayall, Bo Diddley, Alexis Korner and Rod Stewart. Although primarily rooted in the blues, he achieved considerable commercial success across musical genres, collecting gold discs for Bowie’s Laughing Gnome, Fleetwood Mac’s Albatross, the debut album by Andrew Roachford, a fistful of records from Dutch rockers Focus and Bo Diddley’s Grammy nominated A Man Amongst Men.

Mike came out of retirement in 2010 and is now finally realising a lifelong ambition fronting his own stellar rhythm and blues band, striking gold with a handpicked collection of some of the blues scene’s most notable musicians including Kid Carlos (guitar), Paul Tasker (saxophone), Matt Little (keyboards), Ian Jennings (upright bass) and Mike Hellier (drums).
