If you like folksy country music, you will like Big Country Mike Mattera. Songs like "Doo-Doo On You" remind tourists not to feed the sea-gulls. "Pills Pills" if what you eat don't kill you, the cost of your pills will....and the latest after the hit TV series "Deal or No Deal" - I want it all..." A product of the 60's and 70's folk era., Mike grew up playing music from the Everly Brothers, Peter Paul & Mary, John Denver, John Prine, James Taylor, Jackson Browne, Harry Chapin and many more....Played throughout the Northeast at colleges, resort towns, and county fairs, under the name Michael Shoemaker...of "Shoemaker & Holly". Music greatly influenced by surroundings, and many songs depict events with a humorous edge. Other songs explore the path of growing up, life's expectations, experienced failures and success with love, friendships, health and faith.
