RECORDING ARTIST AND MMA TRAINER MIKE LEE RELEASES FRESH POP TUNE, NEXT2U
Recording artist and MMA trainer Mike Lee has released a catchy new track and music video, titled Next2u. The nostalgic verses and fresh pop vibes will give you all the feels.
“My wife and I met when we were 17,” explains Mike. “This song reflects on where we’ve come from, and celebrates where we are today. It’s about gratitude for each other, and the life we get to share.”
The music video was conceptualized, shot, and edited in less than 24 hours, while Mike and his band were on tour in Southern California. They played a set at 9pm, drove into LA, rented a convertible via Turo, and filmed until sunrise.
When Mike isn’t on the road or writing music, he’s coaching at his boxing and MMA gym, located in Fort Wayne, Indiana (Lee Brothers MMA). “For years, my uncle, brothers and I have coached fighters, but over the last year or so our gym has blown up. These days we help a wide range of folks, from little kids with their moms and dads, to high school and college students, looking to get fit and learn ninja moves. All I’m trying to do is look them in the eyes and teach them the stuff that works.”
Since his debut EP in 2014, Mike has been noted for his humorous, yet deeply personal stage presence. From coast-to-coast you can catch Mike on tour, alongside his wife Meesh, and their drummer Ian Dunno. Mike has shared the stage with Andy Mineo, NF, Switchfoot, David Crowder, Chris Tomlin and more.
Over the last five years, Mike has worked on records with Grammy and Dove Award-winning Nashville-based producers Seth Mosley, Ed Cash and Rusty Varenkamp. Currently, Mike is doing most of his writing back home in Indiana with producer/writer (and childhood friend) Landon Bailey. Several new singles are on deck to be released later this year.
