Michael Francis Seander Jr. (born October 30, 1988), known by his stage name Mike Stud, is an American hip hop recording artist and former college baseball player. His first musical recognition came with the release of viral single “College Humor,” which was originally recorded on GarageBand as a joke by Seander, while he was a relief pitcher at Duke University.

Unfortunately, Seander suffered from arm issues following his sophomore season that would eventually require Tommy John Surgery. After missing the entire 2009 season recovering from the surgery, Seander graduated from Duke on the All-ACC Honor Roll with a 3.4 GPA. He decided to use his final year of college eligibility at Georgetown University in Washington, D.C.. He appeared in 9 games as a senior for the Hoyas, striking out 9 in 8.2 innings pitched. Off the diamond, Seander earned a graduate degree in sports management.

His presence on YouTube has been a major factor in Stud’s success as an artist. With videos ranging from official music videos to cover songs to tour footage, Stud has amassed almost 37 million views on his channel (as of July, 2014).

On May 13, 2013, Stud released his debut studio album Relief. Within hours of its midnight iTunes release, the album had reached #1 on the Hip-Hop albums sales chart and #2 on the overall album sales chart.

Stud continues to release videos on his YouTube page, including a remix of “Gas Pedal” by Sage the Gemini that has been viewed over 2.2 million times.

On July 7, 2014, Stud released his second album Closer. Following the release, he will set off on another nationwide tour, ‘The #StudSummer Tour,’ making stops in cities such as New York, Boston, Philadelphia, Atlanta, Houston, San Diego, Seattle, Chicago and many others.
