Mike's Albums

Lifelong singer-songwriter and business builder, Mike Mulder has fire in his belly and mud on his boots. He believes in setting the stage for success and surrounding himself with the right talent to ensure it.

His music career was changed forever when he realized that he was the one indispensable person in the band because he can write songs. “I felt an artistic credibility. I can’t stop writing songs. I can’t stop my music.”

Mulder’s business career was strongly influenced by his relationship with his father. He is the founder of Nimbus Real Estate and a co-founder of Wildbird Charity which supports a backpack program for hungry school children, as well as an outreach program for the homeless in Whatcom County.

Paul Allen’s recording studio, nestled along the shores of Mercer Island’s Lake Washington, had a big impact on the birth of Solvitur Ambulando.

When all is said and done, Gary Ballard and Chip Westerfield play the guitars, Jerry Merrill and Blake Padilla play keyboards, Ray Merrill is on drums and Lonnie Knechtel plays bass. Margaret Wilder and Kim Carson accompany Blake on background vocals.

The songs are unique. The inspiration for each of them is both personal and universal.

Local band, Memphis Rain needed a front man, a songwriter, an original music guy. Mike Mulder fit this need. Together, they jammed once a week practicing in a warehouse space that Mike managed. Eventually, they did some shows, just because they loved playing music.

As time went by, the band found its sound–Chip Westerfield as the producer, Brad Chrysler on keyboards, Dave Bulger on bass and harmonies, Mike Gallagher was our first drummer, followed by Scott Brown Davis (Scooter) and then Bill Whitaker. Eventually, Gary Ballard came up from Seattle every week. And, that’s when it got expensive and more serious.
