about the artist

Living between The Hague, Rotterdam and Paris, Mike Pasarella is a conceptual artist, musician and photographer with hidden Italian roots. From his younger years music has been his true voice, but only since recently his works found the recording studio.

Poetry and love stories have always moved him and these elements find its way in his writing: a reflection of his life and experiences mixed with romanticised reality.

His music can be described as a fusion derived from his past experiences. Although his sound and voice is unique you feel the love and his diverse interest in music that goes from The Beatles, Muse, Michael Jackson, Radiohead, Nirvana towards Chopin. Mike's music is a pure mix of alternative 90s rock combined with modern pop.

"Sometimes I feel like me, when I see my own reflection."  #newmusic

The younger years

After pre-school of the conservatorium, Mike Pasarella played in schoolbands and was writing music for local theater shows and musicals.

While he actually started to play drum at the age of 5 and picked up vocals along the way, it was only at the age of 14 he bought his first guitar and started to play on the piano. A solo artist was born, but it would take years for the first song to be recorded.

"Gonna wake up
alone in my head."
