Production & Performance Credits

Mike Thorne’s hired-gun production and performance career lasted from 1976 to 1994. After a corporate pause working in the new media, he moved back to music again, to work only with close collaborators and on his own words and music. Didn’t stop the action, though. Music and records still flow.
