Michael Williams, ASCAP / Bio

Like many, my first exposure to song was from the Church and the many hymns that were played and sang from the 1960's until now. As we grow, our music tastes change, but then again I have never relegated myself to one particular genre. Living in Europe, Northern Ireland in the 1970's, while in the Navy exposed me to the British tunes, you know "Pink Floyd", "Queen", "Beatles and the "Mood Blues", of course exposure to my good friend's 700 plus record collection, I was exposed to virtually every kind of music known to man. It has been thru that exposure that I have acquired an extremely eclectic and wide appreciation of music, musicians, composition and in music overall.

Enjoy thinking and reminiscing of something cool and then arranging it into to music! Some may laugh or even cringe using the words, compose, arrange of write, but possibly that merely shows their own depth of intellect and personal grounding. As for me, it is great therapy, creating original music using the Yamaha TYROS 4, Digital Arranger Workstation, and the MOOG (A real deal analog synthesizer), M-Audio Keystation Controller, AKAI EIE PRO and M-Audio Fast Track Pro, Yamaha PSR-530, KORG KOAS Dynamic Effect Pads, Fender Guitar, Mandolin, Electric Violin, Harmonica, Autoharp, Piano and other Natural Instruments. Using Pro Tools 10, 11 and 11HD on dedicated audio/video servers is the way to go! Got to love technology. Besides to compensate, I have to crank it up due to losing the majority of my hearing in the Navy, so excuse the occasional missteps from the deaf guy, LOL

Special Thanks to: Alan Parsons (Alan Parsons Project) for his inspiration and professional instruction and guidance, Who would have thought, that walking the crosswalk at Abbey Road in London, visiting, would have led me full circle in revisiting music later in life. Thanks to Mustafa, a former percussionist and member of Santana on the European tours, who looked me up and gave me some excellent words of encouragement. But especially to the many of YOU - whether here on RN or on the boatload of other sites I am associated with, for offering support and for getting me more interested in playing and recording again.
