Singer/songwriter and U.S. Marine Mike Corrado garnered national radio and television airplay after releasing his song “Stand” from his 2010 EP Stand. The video has been featured on CMT, Armed Forces Radio & Television and more. “Stand” pays tribute to those who serve in the armed forces, veterans and the families and communities who stand behind them. Service is something Mike knows a lot about. During a brief hiatus from active duty with the Marines, Mike set aside his rifle and HUMVEE for a guitar and a 15 passenger van and set out for four years of life on the road performing 200-250 shows a year both as a headliner and in support of such acts as John Mayer, Edwin McCain, Train to name a few. In the wake of the September 11 attacks, Mike was mobilized back to active duty with the Marine Corps and later left for a year-long deployment to Fallujah, Iraq. Continuing to write, record and perform while on active duty, Corrado released Stand following up his breakout independent albums Falling Awake (2005) and Start Saving Me (2008). Mike Corrado has continued to blur the genre lines between rock and country with a style equally accepted by audiences of other major artists he’s recently shared the stage with including the Black Eyed Peas, Bon Jovi, Aaron Tippin and Daryl Worley. Staying true to his songs of service, Corrado recently wrote, recorded and shot a video for a song entitled “Still in the Fight” (2011) to raise awareness for wounded service members and their new battle of recovery. The video has been featured on GAC, TCN and Yahoo! Music. In late 2011, “Still in the Fight” caught the attention of a major documentary filmmaker and is currently being made into a film set for release summer 2012. Mike, his story and music have been featured nationally on CNN, ABC, CBS, Rolling Stone Magazine and more.
