Mike’s career began at age sixteen in Los Angeles when his band, The Zoo, was given a contract in 1968 by Bell Records (which later became Arista Records). They were one of the youngest groups ever signed to a major label at that time. The Zoo included Mike on drums along with Howard Leese on guitar and keyboards.
After relocating to Vancouver, British Columbia in 1971, Mike was hired as chief engineer at Aragon Studios (later renamed Mushroom Studios), which became the premiere state-of-the-art studio in western Canada.
1975 proved to be a fateful year for Mike with his discovery, signing, and production of the band Heart. Mike received the coveted Canadian Juno Award for Producer of the Year for his production on Heart’s debut album, Dreamboat Annie.
Mike established himself as a major independent producer with artists that included Poco, Al Stewart, Randy Meisner, Nantucket, Wendy Waldman and Trooper, one of the five top selling Canadian bands of all time.
Mike’s diverse career in the music, technology, and film/television industries culminated in the 1991 formation of Mike Flicker Music Services, where he continues to contribute his leadership in successful service to the film, television, and ancillary entertainment industries.
