Mike McMonagle

Biography

The first day Mike McMonagle picked up a guitar was a Saturday (presumably). The Pennsylvania sky was blue and cloudless (probably). The first chord he ever strummed was an E minor, and to this day, Mike still plays that very same chord – along with others – to craft an array of folk-inspired ditties about riding trains, drinking wine and the Commonwealths of Virginia and Pennsylvania. A wealth of meaning exists below the surface, however, as Mike sings to inspire hope, reconcile loss and make good on his existence in this world.
