Happy to welcome you to Mike McCurlie’s online home. You’ve come to the right place if you want to know all things Mike. Glad you popped by!
Most folks would say Mike is not your everyday guy and we’d agree. It’s not ‘every guy’ that’s been in dozens of bands, has writing and voice credits on thousands of radio and TV commercials and is the genius behind jingles so famous our whole country can hum them effortlessly.
What’s more, it’s not every guy who interviews famous musicians, co-founds one of Hamilton’s most successful media companies, and is a graduate of the infamous Wizard Academy in Austin, Texas.
And to lock down his “not your everyday guy” title, Mike has lived in a tree house, sailed the Atlantic, played Liverpool’s Cavern Club, and has earned “Best Dad in The World” mugs from his two amazing daughters (who now run MJM Media).
If you don’t recognize Mike’s face, you’ll definitely recognize his voice and sound. For the better half of a century, Mike’s been the voice behind some of Canada’s biggest brands. He’s also produced some of the most memorable jingles in history like African Lion Safari, La-Z-Boy and Pizza Pizza. A natural storyteller, Mike is available for select voiceover work. Email him for more info.
One of Mike’s most recent passion projects is his live streaming show from The Westdale: Hamilton Originals, where he talks with famous musicians, getting them to open up and share the story of their art and their personal journey. As a storyteller and interviewer, his approach is honest and unscripted. His natural style is more like a conversation at the kitchen table with a great friend over drinks.
