“Through the years Michael has lived in every major music capital in the U.S.”
When Michael reached Berlin (where he recorded “Berlin Demos” in 1996) he had already spent 20 years defining his craft. He began in Houston, Texas in the early ‘70’s at age 19 where he opened for Blues Legend Lightnin’ Hopkins. This led to 10 years in Los Angeles where he opened for Buddy Guy and Junior Wells in 1987 at the Long Beach Blues Festival. He spent most of his time in the studio recording his songs with musicians like Jesse Ed Davis (John Lennon’s favorite guitarist).
On the success of latest album “Real", which reached #26 on the top 100 Albums on the Americana Roots Charts for 2014, Michael has signed with Worldhaus Music and will release a new album "Seven Songs for Sylvia" in 2016 which marks his 8th original album in 50 years of his professional music career.
