Singer/Songwriter and Entertainer Mike Mckendry, has a collection of material recorded from 1991 through to 1998.

Mike started piano lessons at the age of 4 and was also playing guitar by the age of 10. At 14 he was the main guitarist in the Linwood High School Jazz band, and one of a few to recieve a Blazar award for this.

Mike joined the AirForce as an Avionics Mechanic in 1986,I served for 2 years then left to study for a science degree graduating from Canterbury University in 1992 and then did a year teacher training, specialising in Biology & Physics, he then tutored mathematics privately for a year. At that stage Mike's song "First Love" , "Tea Break" and "My Peace" were having airplay on local radio stations. Eventually Music won and by 1995 he was playing 150 gigs per year right up until the American tour.

Album titles his songs can be found on are 1)Heavenly Armour 2)Heavenly Armour LIVE (recorded live in concert 1994, at the Majestic House CH CH New Zealand) 3) Come Together Compilation (3 Tracks with 9 other well known N.Z CCM artists) and 4)Heaven & Earth(penned during a 4 month tour of the U.S.A in 1997)

Mike's intention is to make most of these tracks available along with some more recent Demo's, one of the demo's will be produced with a suitable video feature.

Mike's song "Servant Heart" made it into the top 20 of the Big Break competition in 2005. This was an event during New Zealand music month of May, and the competition was run by New Zealand's Rhema. Rhema is the only station in N.Z that has Nationwide coverage, and the song had considerable exposure to a wide field of listeners. To date he has had over 25 years experience.

Watch this space for continuous development of new demo material that hopefully will refresh you.

This has to be the best Elton John tribute I've ever heard. You have managed to capture the spirit of Reggie and convey his emotion through his songs. Excellent. Your original material is mind blowing and exceptional. You've got a hi five from me.
