Mike Redway is the owner of Redrock Music Ltd. He is a performer in his own right, and also a producer (He produced Terry Wogan's infamous Floral Dance!).
Mike started his career singing at working men’s clubs in and around his home town of Leeds with an act called “The Demijeans”. The act was spotted by a BBC Manchester producer (James Casey) who contracted them to appear on “The Jimmy Clithero Show" and “The Albert Modley Show”.
Mike moved to London in 1961 to work as a song plugger at Chappell Music. After auditioning for the BBC Mike got his first break as a solo artist with the BBC in a radio series called “Sing It Again”.
Mike joined the Rabin Band for a short period before moving in to the session world as a session singer. It was here that he met Mike Sammes and became involved as a backing singer on many of the big hit records of the sixties and seventies with: The Beatles, Tom Jones, Engleburt Humperdinck Andy Williams, Barbara Streisand, Johnny Mathis, Howard Keel, Henry Mancini and many other famous artists.
Mike left the session world to further his solo career as a singer-song writer. Many people will recall his records being played by Terry Wogan, Jimmy Young, Gloria Hunniford, Steve Race and other BBC radio presenters.
In the late sixties Mike appeared in a very successful television series called “One More Time”. Among the many happy memories in Mike’s career the outstanding achievement was to have his own BBC radio series “Those Beautiful Ballad Years”.
