Born and raised in a small North Carolina town, Michael began his performing career as a child singing and playing piano in the church where his father was the music director. As a teenager Michael moved to Virginia where he performed in restaurants and coffee houses and was soon a regular on the east coast club and college circuit. With a passion for songwriting, Michael moved to Nashville where he was a staff writer for icon and mentor, Buddy Killen. There he honed his craft and performed at venues such as the Ryman Auditorium and Grand Ole Opry House.
Since then, Michael has played venues from house concerts to amphitheaters all over the US and China.

His shows blend folk, pop, rock, country, and jazz influences into a sound that is absolutely unique, and he does it all skillfully on his acoustic guitar. His live performances are not to be missed.”
