My name is Mike Indest, I am a singer/songwriter from New Orleans. I’ve released over 20+ releases, mostly EP’s. I don’t like doing the same thing twice so I’ve released projects that delve into various styles. I’ve recorded techno, acoustic, experimental and even some country tunes .

Even though my songs are not really mainstream and I record pretty lo-fi, I’ve had some success having my songs placed in movies, commercials, in store play and in advertising campaigns all over the world. 




I try to play live when I can, mostly playing my electric baritone ukulele.

I’m always open if someone wants to shake a tambourine, so if you have any interest in playing along please let me know.

What Others Have Said:



This is indie rock that says something without shouting or faux-whispering. ~ Radio Eclectic



Trouble and Sorrow remains one of the best pop songs I’ve heard in a couple of years, it’s a guitar driven track that stops short of bursting into flame – it’s a wonderfully smoldering tune. ~ Banophernalia



The harmonies are precise, and the lyrics are thought provoking and meaningful. ~ Down The Line
