Mike Kuster writes and performs country music based on his love for classic country music. His baritone voice and style reflects his love for the traditional country sounds artists like Johnny Cash, and Randy Travis.
Mike grew up on a small farm in Frederick County, Maryland raising beef cattle, and breaking horses. He spent a lot of time out in the barn and the round pen singing along to the radio as he did his chores.
Mike sang in his church choir as a child, played violin in school and church, and learned guitar watching his father play. In his teens, Mike played fiddle in a local band that folded when the lead singer moved to Nashville.
After graduating from the University of Maryland where he worked as a student disc jockey with a country show on WMUC, he married his high school sweetheart, Emily. Mike and Emily met in their high school’s FFA Chapter.
Mike and Emily still live in Frederick County, and have three children. Mike works as an I.T. Generalist, and Emily is a nurse at the local hospital.
As a former 4-H’er and 4-H Agent, Mike continues to serve as a 4-H volunteer leader and officer for the Frederick County 4-H Camp & Activities Center. Mike also serves on the Planning and Zoning Commission for the Town of Walkersville.
During the pandemic, Mike shares his music on various social media platforms with recorded and live performances each week. He is currently working in the studio on an album of original songs Mike has written.
