Jack of all arts, master of none, at least in his head. A Novelist, playwright, poet, game writer, children book writer, lyricist, singer and hopefully many more titles. Mike embraces the arts in every form they may take.
Getting his start, in professional writing back in 2013, with his first play Insane Sanity, he proceeded to publish his first Novel, in an 8 book series, Shadowsite Chronicles: Awakenings in 2014. He went on to publish the second book in the series, Tides of Change, in 2018. 2019 he shifted focus again, publishing his first illustrated children's book, Duffy the Duffel Bag", and followed it up with book 2, Duffy's First Flight, in 2020.
He also co-facilitates a writing workshop for the Writers Foundation of Strathcona County, on the Last Saturday of every month. Basically, if there is writing involved, he probably does it.
Chu The Producer is a prolific producer, songwriter and hip-hop storyteller. He is known for his infectious hooks and engaging lyrics. As an artist, Chu’s style is best described as melodic and relaxed with a hint of yesteryear. As a producer, he is a chameleon of sorts – manoeuvring in and out of genres seamlessly.
When he’s not producing, writing or performing, Chu can be found honing his skills as a DJ and loves to share his love of music whenever possible. He was an active participant in the Edmonton hip-hop scene in the early 90s during its infancy stage.
His self-produced album titled “The Open Book Experience” under the alias "The Original Chu". With decades of life experience under his belt, he poured his heart and soul, fears, anxieties and insecurities into this diary-style LP. The debut single ‘Crystal Ball’ won the People’s Choice Award in 2017 at the Edmonton Music Awards. He has since rebranded to Chu The Producer and in 2020 alone, he completed 49 songs and collaborated with 36 different artists, songwriters, producers and engineers.
