In early 1996, after growing increasingly frustrated with focusing on projects showcasing the music of other talented musicians, an outlet for Michaels high-energy, no-holds-barred originals was needed. The resulting critically acclaimed team drives home his unique brand of original rock. Blending styles and influences from Richie Havens to King’s X, and Dave Matthews to Seal!! I love mixing rock, funk, and pop influences with acoustic and electric guitars, strong vocals, and a kick ass rhythm section. In 1997 they released their first album, Beneath It All. This gutsy Milesh Records debut attracted national product endorsements and garnered impressive reviews and airplay on a variety of regional radio as they played the Mid-Atlantic extensively to support the release. In the spring of 2002, Milesh Records released the much anticipated second album, Ghost Of A Chance. Michael followed that with two solo records, Joyfully: A Christmas Wish in 2003, and Private Stock Vol. 1 hitting the streets in 2004! They continue a steady schedule throughout their territory as CD sales and venue attendance grows at consistent rates. Taking his music to new levels, while earning rave reviews from fans and critics is nothing new to Michael and his group of seasoned professionals. As a member of Milkshake, a touring rock band for kids, Michael shares a GRAMMY NOMINATION for their 2009 release, Great Day! He has also earned several prestigious industry awards including 6 WAMMIE AWARDS (21 Nominations) for Best Male Vocalist and Best Artist/Group in the Rock/Pop, and Alternative Categories from the Washington Area Music Association; several Mid-Atlantic Readers Poll Awards, and 4 Mid-Atlantic Songwriters Awards. Shared stage credits include Johnny A, Journey, The Tubes, Fishbone, Tony Levin, Tina Turner, Pat McGee Band, Steve Morse Band, Hootie & the Blowfish, Salt-N-Pepa, Seven Mary Three, King’s X, Todd Rundgren, Creed, Summer Camp, Primus, and Rick Ocasek.
