BIO

 


Michael started playing guitar at the age of 10. By 11, he was playing with local bands at venues around town. His ability to play blues, jazz, rock and country had many musicians asking for him to sit in. At age 13, while attending a Buddy Guy concert, he was asked by Buddy to “come on up”. He jumped at the opportunity and, according to Portland radio station WBLM, “blew the roof off the place”. Today Michael plays regularly throughout southern Maine, has played in the Boston area, and is always looking to expand on his musical journey. Inspired by Stevie Ray Vaughn, Marcus King, Jeff Beck, Chis Stapleton, Jimi Hendrix, his music is complex, but soulful. With vocals coming along, there is no limit to where he might go!
