Bio
Mike Scala is the former front man and guitarist of Outlet and Desperate Insanity. Born in Brooklyn, New York, Mike, a self taught guitarist, pianist, vocalist, and singer/songwriter started writing music and performing from the age of twelve. Throughout the next couple of years Mike started to define his voice, instruments and style. By age seventeen, Mike began performing at underground jazz and rock venues across Los Angeles and New York.

The following years of Mike's life proved to be the ultimate test. With a dream in mind to pursue his career, start a charity foundation for kids through his music, and the many obstacles of the industry, Mike self funded and produced his first single and released "Crash" in August 2005 and sold over a thousand copies through self promoting and at concerts.

Every concert that Mike does he donates a portion of the proceeds to local and world youth based foundations and charities and he has just recently started his own.

After officially launching his solo career in 2007 and with the release of his new self titled EP, Mike has sold over five thousand copies of his new release all over the world and self funded all of his tours. His catchy voice melodies, riffs, and positive message has proved to be a major contribution to music and his fans. Mikes Music has been featured on radio stations across Australia and New Zealand and his song "Soldier's Cry was just featured in the Nationwide "Wounded Warrior Project" which aids veterans and their families that have been affected or have been injured by the war in Iraq.

Mike provides aid to developing countries and helps youth all over the world through his message and music. The success of his tours in the U.S., U.K., Australia, New Zealand, and Central America continually allow him to give aid to thousands. His music is available on Itunes, Rhapsody, Napster , and other major distributors.

Mike Scala Foundation for Youth

Category: Non-Profit / Volunteering
Description
The Foundation will provide programs and aide for at risk youth across the United States. The program is designed to target children and teens that are victims of domestic violence, abuse, neglect, in connection with gangs, and drug abuse, and provide a safehaven where teens are given support and guidance. This program also provides assistance and education to teens at risk of dropping out of school. The Foundation will provide opportunities for our teens to build confidence and life skills by participation in community service and mentor programs. These programs, which will include music lessons and volunteer opportunities, will mirror to our teens the importance of values, building relationships and ultimately will result in strong character. These programs will work collaboratively with schools and organizations within the community to promote stability and sustainability. The goal of my foundation is to empower youth, show them that they can be in control of their lives, and help them to develop effective coping skills. This Foundation will show our teens that they can make a difference in the world and help them become the people that they strive to be. I am confident that through my Foundation, our youth will have the opportunities and assistance to succeed.
