The love songs he plays share an expression of his heart through the flute. "When you listen to this collection of songs, you hear beautiful music. When I listen to the songs, I can hear and see Mike Serna. I hear him laugh - I see his bright smile - I see him shifting his weight on his feet as he plays - swaying with the long notes, bobbing to the quick notes. Even though he has on sunglasses, I know he's closing his eyes and he's pulling the music we hear straight from his heart . . . from his soul." Annie Humphrey, two-time Nammy winner "25 years of the music industry can make any musician jaded. It can take all that's good and creative and alive out of the reason for playing music in the first place - leaving an empty shell standing there playing a part. Mikes music fills the void that the road has burned out of me. His artistry is soulful and profound, simple and true. It does what music is supposed to do - change you - take you somewhere you've never been, and make you want to stay there. Of all the national artists I've been associated with over my career, I'm most proud of the work I've done with Mike Serna, and even more grateful for what his music means to my own spirit." Keith Stalcup, Nashville TN "Outpouring his soul in music, Mike Serna creates a magic that touches the hearts of his audience." flyingman, WAWL, "Ancestral Rhythms" Contact Mike at firstname.lastname@example.org.
