Born and raised in South Texas, Michael has been writing and performing music for almost his whole life, spanning over multiple genres and projects until finally deciding( in early 2013) to venture out on his own.
The first song released (as Ol Mikey) was "5minus2", which was entirely written and recorded by Michael, with lead guitars done by former Top Dead Center guitarist Johnny Rodd. In January 2016 He was named a Breakout artist by Touchtunes interactive and his new single "The Kid", was released on Touchtunes Jukeboxes nation wide. "The Kid" will also get full digital release in January with the full album The Devil Made Me Do It, do for release in the spring.
