Mike & The Mechanics are an English rock/pop band formed in 1984 as a side project of Mike Rutherford, a founding member of Genesis, who became a successful band in their own right. They are known for their hit singles "Silent Running (On Dangerous Ground)", "All I Need Is a Miracle", "Word of Mouth", "Over My Shoulder", and "The Living Years".

The main lineup for the band were Rutherford, vocalists Paul Carrack and Paul Young (formerly of chart band Sad Café), keyboardist Adrian Lee and drummer Peter Van Hooke. Carrack's pure, soulful voice was generally assigned to ballads and more pop-oriented numbers, while Young's powerful rock voice and wide vocal range was assigned to the band's heavier work. From their 1995 album Beggar on a Beach of Gold until Young's death in 2000, only Rutherford, Carrack and Young were permanent members of the line-up.
