The Undiscovered: Mike Dollins

Mike Dollins


Ballads, Blues & More

Little Rock based bluesman Mike Dollins calls his submitted CD-R album Chameleon because when it comes to guitar, he likes playing so many styles and vintages. Blues, of course, form the root of his playing, and his album features six numbers so rooted. Dollins has been playing his axe since 1958, so if you do the math, he's got almost 50 years worth of experience. Dollins loves to solo as well, peppering his songs with improvised lines, not only in traditional solo sections, but also between verses, as intros, as outros, and more. All this means more and more guitar for the blues guitar lover. You can groove and move to his music, and after that, you can check out one of his other umpteen CDs available through his web site.


Mike picked up the guitar in 1958 and fell in love with R&B, blues, jazz and gospel music. His blues name, Whisker Fish, came about by his number one all time radio play funk fusion hit called "Whisker Fish", which can still be heard on jazz stations world wide. After spending years forming his name and promoting other artists, Mike's first solo CD was issued in 2000, entitled "Jazz, Rhythm & Blues". Mike has family roots in Arkansas and musical roots in jazz and blues. He has many years of stage playing and performing experience, and has been in bands such as Cruzin', The Jades and The Esquires, among others. Listed in the Blues Hall of Fame, Mike has spent years playing and promoting the blues before it was an in thing.

"Jazz, Rhythm & Blues" still receives airplay on blues, jazz, and fusion FM & Internet radio stations.
