    How To Be The Whole Package - Guitarist, Nice Guy, Great Player (with Mike Mayfield)

    Stefan Redtenbacher (Redtenbacher's Funkestra) and James Welch (Masterlink Productions) talk to musician and music creator Mike Mayfield.

    Stef, James and Mike talk about the important things in life like how bad are hotel scrambled eggs? And thankfully we quickly move on to Mike's astonishing career being guitarist alongside Emeli Sandé, Leona Lewis, Becky Hill, Engelbert Humperdinck, Thirty Seconds To Mars, Eliza Doolittle, Labrinth, Ellie Golding, Rita Ora and Jessie to name but a few.

    Mike is super humble and we hope it comes across what a genuinely nice person he is and awesome musician.
