Mike Petro is an American electronic musician who not only creates music, but an experience. He mixes old school artistry with futuristic style as a performing vocalist, live producer and songwriter. The blueprint to his genre-mashing sound was inspired by a blend of Chicago house music, 90’s hip hop and classic rock to name a few. Mike breaks ground as a live showman, established rapper and versed songwriter. Blending these talents, he creates music that spans across the spectrum of age, oddly unique, without sacrificing his undeniable pop-ability. ‘Kid4Evr’ is Mike Petro’s all original debut EDM release that highlights the forever pursuit of love and chasing your childhood dreams. Coming this Summer of 2014!
