Iconoclastic guitarist and singer Mike Baggetta is most recently known for leading his post-genre power trio mssv (with the legendary rhythm team of drummer Stephen Hodges and bassist mike watt) through multiple US tours and album releases over the past 5 years, after releasing two additional albums of original music alongside watt and drummer Jim Keltner, all on the BIG EGO record label. His music has always been adventurous in spirit and style, so no wonder his latest endeavor finds him navigating the waters of creating his identifiably undefinable sound in a solo setting with only his guitar, voice and various musical gadgets.

Baggetta has had the pleasure to make music all over the world with a wide range of visionary musicians across many generations including David Torn, Nels Cline, Psychic Temple, Jeff Coffin, Henry Kaiser, Petra Haden, Rev. Fred Lane, Joseph C. Philips’ Numinous, Imani Uzuri, Viktor Krauss, J Mascis, David Wax Museum, Jerome Harris and Ruth Brown among many others. Baggetta is an Endorsing Artist for Koll Guitars, Benson Amps and D’Addario Strings.


“Baggetta is a player of immense subtlety across all dimensions, working with an impressive palette of tones … distilling Fripp’s loopscapes with hints of John Fahey.”

-The Wire, UK

"Baggetta’s vocals remind me of Tom Verlaine. Sometimes hushed, sometimes full-throated, often suggesting the personal and universal across a few lines.”

-INK 19

“Think pressure, combustion, power, and hissing clouds of sonic poetry, and you're in the right pipeline.”

-Premier Guitar

“…A terrific player, capable of weirdly elegant fretwork, shivery Verlaine-esque tones, freeform freakouts and crunchy fuzz, shifting from one zone to another with a naturalness and ease.”

-Aquarium Drunkard

“Mike Baggetta makes stealthy, mysterious music … he’s trying to do something personal with collective improvisation without ever getting in the way of beauty.”

-New York Times

“…vintage twang in service of Americana-meets exploratory Jazz-psych…”

-Rolling Stone
