Mike Novak, grew up near the New York City music scene and was a Washington D.C.-based musician before relocating to Hamburg in January 2022. He composed and recorded several albums while performing at venues as a solo artist, as well as in various ensembles. Mike hosted a monthly musical residency at the Black Squirrel in Adams Morgan, coined the last funky neighborhood in Washington D.C.. Several collaborations were born during these years, including the rock group Novakaine. They produced the album “Waves”  that D.C. music critic David Hintz described as “…engaging, agreeable rock music with some creative flourish…along with a lot of clever songwriting shifts and just enough power pop”. Mike is currently residing in Hamburg and performing in Europe. His music is full of improvisational interludes, and the performances are fresh, polished and captivating.
