Mike McCleary

Mike McCleary is a solo rock artist from Northern Ontario, Canada. Having played several instruments since he was a teen, Mike has been inspired by artists and bands across a wide variety of genres, and has made an effort to merge several influences into a unique blend of grunge, funk, and rock.
Musically, listeners might notice Mike’s nods to bands like Godsmack, Pantera, and Avenged Sevenfold, or the more subtle traces of the distinct styles of Eric Clapton, Ry Cooder, John Mayer, and Hawksley Workman.
Ultimately, Mike aims to use his music to make listeners think. “Music should evoke a response,” he says, “whether it’s helping you escape from the daily grind, or inspiring you to learn about a topic you would have otherwise ignored.
Music can be the perfect forum to open up the dialogue on subjects that would potentially be unwelcome or uncomfortable in a normal conversational setting.”
Album: Weight of the Truth (2018)
The original plan was for Weight of the Truth to just be a fun rock album. But then I noticed that a lot of my writing was focused on the ups and downs of life and its relation to mental health. Even after realizing this, I initially decided not to focus on it. I actually sat on “Be the One” for weeks after writing it, as the song is obviously about mental illness, and I was too worried about the negative stigma that comes with that. But as I’ve said elsewhere, I like my music to carry a message and start conversations, and this is no exception.
Since coming to terms with my own depression and anxiety, I have become intimately familiar with both the personal challenges and the negative stigma that comes with mental illness. I encourage everybody that thinks mental health is a choice to actually create an open dialogue with anybody suffering from one of these conditions - learn more about them, don’t just assume weakness without knowing the full story. This is why I feel it’s so important to tackle this issue with my music.
