Mike Pinto is a true storyteller who captivates fans around the world with his undeniably distinct voice and exceptional songwriting. Born and raised in the outskirts of Philadelphia, Pinto has become a prominent fixture in the Southern California music scene after living in San Diego for the past ten years. His gritty East Coast perspective of life, blended with the laid-back California lifestyle, creates a dichotomy that is uniquely original.
Pinto's newest album, "Hotel Rendezvous," debuted at #4 on iTunes Singer-Songwriter charts, and was nominated as one of 2018’s Best World Music Albums by the San Diego Music Awards. It’s his 6th release, while his previous records have topped the iTunes Reggae and Billboard Reggae charts, debuting at #1 and #2 respectively.
Constantly evolving as an artist and songwriter, Pinto's songs are both deeply personal and widely relatable. With his signature narrative style, he explores life chapter by chapter, all with a light-hearted satire rich with depth. "Hotel Rendezvous" explores a broad spectrum of genres, from Singer-Songwriter and Reggae, to Folk and Country music.
His popularity spreads beyond the continental United States, with radio plays in Japan, Hawaii and the Pacific Islands, and live performances in Guam, Canada, Mexico, and Australia. He has toured nationally with such bands as Iration, Black Uhuru, The Aggrolites and Ballyhoo!
Mike Pinto brings his full band to the South, East Coast, and Midwest this summer, supporting Long Beach Dub All Stars and The Aggrolites. The tour begins July 9th in Austin, Texas. They will also release a 7-song EP in late June, a full-band acoustic rendition of songs over Pinto’s catalog. The “Sugarshack Sessions,” as it is dubbed, features videos on YouTube of every song released on the EP. Keep an eye out for the late June release, as well as tour dates in your area.
