In 2008, upon returning to the Puget Sound from a trip to Nashville (many thanks to KMPS Seattle) to audition for an upcoming CMT network program, Michael decided then that he needed to put the hammer down in his music pursuit. He worked his way into the local music scene by attending jam sessions and visiting the shows of musicians who selflessly gave of their time to mentor him in the ways of the song, the scene and the business, often inviting him to play a few tunes and work on his chops. Relying greatly on the deep well of talent this region offers in order to book from gig to gig, he was blessed to share the stage with many of the local icons. This coalesced into the band it is today, creating its own brand of original music and paying homage to the musical gifts of the greats. Michael also enjoys songwriter sessions and traveling to Nashville for songwriter workshops and seminars or checking out his favorite local bands.
