Bio & Set List

Michael was raised in Sparta, Wisconsin and grew up listening to everything from the Beatles to Motown. Living in Nashville for 7 years influenced him too. Today, as a singer/songwriter that performs all styles, Michael performs anything from Tom Petty to the Everly Brothers.  Writing a song still feels good, so he'll plug an original now and then.  

For the last 35 years Michael has played everything from House Concerts to Blues Jams.  One of his favorite venues is where people can just sit down and soak it in. 

If you'd like to check his schedule to book an event just send him an email  or give him a call at 920 410 0482.   See a preview of my style by visiting my videos.   

See ya soon!
