THE KING OF SWAMP STOMP
Growing up in the land of Lynyrd Skynyrd, and Bo Diddley, its really not a surprise how an artist like Iron Mike Norton, came to be. He has, for more than a decade, been considered one of the most innovative artists in the roots and blues genres. His use of modern styles like hip hop, rock and techno with traditional hill country slide guitar blues, is drawing an entirely new group of fans to the blues.
Based out of the swamps of Florida, Iron Mike has performed for audiences in both the USA and abroad. A multi-instrumentalist, Mike's passion is most certainly, slide guitar. He is the protege of legendary slide guitar virtuoso, Sonny Landreth. The two became friends in 1997, with Sonny being a constant source of advice and support throughout Iron Mike's career. His ability to cross over into other formats has garnered him the opportunity to work with Sonny, and a long list of artists from wide spectrum of genres, including Willie Nelson, Scum of The Earth, and legendary songwriter, Bill Dees (Pretty Woman).
Always a pushing the envelope, Iron Mike has put together an all-star band of players from other indie rock bands to back him up on the Arc Angel Tour.

Phenomenal guitar player!
“One thing I love about the Blues world is that it throws up styles and artists that bring a great deal of originality and thought to the listener, more so than any other genre. Iron Mike Norton is one of those.”
“Great slide guitar work, songwriting and an offering of something a bit different to spice up your music library. It's all there in Swamp Stomp. Make sure you play it from beginning until the very end!”
"Shake My Tree" definitely showcases Mike's raw talent on guitar. It's an easy track to get into, with catchy lyrics, and gnarly vocals - It'll have you and the boys singin' all the way to Vegas.
