After opening for 2 Chainz and participating on American Idol, Mike Hauser has made a name for himself in the music industry. Lionel Richie himself told Hauser "I hear a young Rod Stewart when I close my eyes". David Saslow of Atlantic Records later listened to "Memories on Polaroid", Mike's debut EP, and called So Down and Four Years "quality singles". Mike Hauser and his backing band are currently playing shows in the DC area, cultivating their local fan base before branching out to other areas of the globe.
