Who is Mike Nobody?

Mike Nobody (a.k.a. Ronnie Michael Sullivan, born Ronnie Michael Mahan, September 15, 1973) is an American multi-instrumentalist, singer, songwriter, composer, visual artist, and creator of experimental instruments. Diagnosed with social anxiety and major depression disorders, he is regarded as an outsider artistmusician by his contemporaries in the fine art and alternative music scenes. Known for his highly eclectic style and diverse projects, his sound incorporates a variety of music genres, both popular and experimental, with a predominantly Lo-Fi aesthetic. Most of his work consists of ultra-limited, handmade cassettes recorded alone in his home, with whatever means that were available at the time.

His visual work consists primarily of “stream of consciousness” drawings and mixed media paintings made from repurposed materials, with occasional ventures into film & video.

Creating in near anonymity since the 1980’s, most exposure to his work has been primarily in the form of mail art packages, ad-hoc self-distribution, and a few local retail outlets. He gained some notoriety in the Metro Detroit area, beginning in the 1990’s, and has collaborated with numerous musicians across the sonic spectrum. Whether people were listening or not, however, Mike continued to compulsively produce music and art pieces. Exponential growth of the internet in the intervening years has given Mike new opportunities to reach an audience, unavailable to him before.

Performing live almost exclusively in groups since the age of 15, he reluctantly began performing solo in 2015, and (without really knowing what he was doing) developed a one-man-band presentation with his unusual setup. But, he continues to work on new projects with local musicians up to this day.

Potential listeners may be bewildered by the sometimes disastrous, but always hypnotizing, performances of an unpolished Mike Nobody. Over the years it has become apparent that fans appreciate his idiosyncratic creativity.

If you can’t get past his unusual playing, singing, sonically experimental style, you may not be a part of the audience who loves music as Mike does – not written “for” a music industry, but for himself. He appeals to those who share the love of art as a passion and not an enterprise.

Can I contact Mike Nobody?

You may email or write to him at his P.O. box address.
See contact.

Can I send my music or art to Mike to review?

Yes. Send it to the P.O. box address – see contact. It isn’t reasonable to always expect a response from Mike, but he does enjoy and appreciate the work of others a great deal.

What do I need to know to COVER a song written by Mike? How do I go about licensing Mike’s music for my video / film?

You can generally sing and perform covers of Mike’s music without obligation. When you reach the point you want to publish your cover, or include any music in your project, your label or publisher will know how to report and pay for use of copyrighted material. For any questions, you can contact Theee Urban SpaceCat Musique Publishing.

Who do I contact to book a performance from Mike?

See contact.

Does Mike ever show his art anywhere?

He’ll showcase his artwork in art fairs, coffee houses, galleries. music venues, record stores, here and there, all over the place. Just make an offer.

How can I be notified if Mike will be performing in my area?
