Michael Garfield / Bio

Michael Garfield is making music for which new words must be invented – vocally athletic percussive future-folk and improvised instrumental electronica, a marriage of charismatic stage presence and dazzling technique combining avant-fingerstyle work with sixty pounds of guitar pedals. Singing and playing while twisting knobs and DJ'ing live samples with his toes, Michael's performances are an embodiment of his training as an evolutionary biologist and cyberdelic poet-philosopher – liberating the organic into the digital, and the idioms of Americana into a new species of transcendental trance.

"Welcome to the future...Michael is a pioneer exploring the edge realms where the electric and old world meet."
- LostInSound

"It takes creativity to make the next step in a newer, more shocking direction, but it takes a visionary to go beyond the breaking point and meet music on the other end of the spectrum. That’s what Michael Garfield does."
- TheUntz

"Intoxicating, rejuvenating, and unapologetically spiritual work...entertaining songs that completely upend the stereotypes of intelligent music...instantly memorable and utterly magnetic tunes whose authenticity and sweetness is boundary breaking."
- Reality Sandwich
