For more than 25 yrs. Michael has paid his dues playing live music. He started as a licenced busker, entertaining Toronto subway commuters. Since those humble beginnings Michael has played countless live shows with his band locally and abroad and has performed as guitarist/vocalist with The Razorbacks, Paul Reddick, The Blues Brothers Review, "Legends Of Rock" and "Classics Albums Live" shows, to name a few. He gigs regularly as a solo act, drawing from an extensive repertoire of Rock, Folk, Blues and Jazz standards. Equally accomplished as both a guitarist and pianist, he moves with ease from one to the other, playing at "Dueling Pianos" cabarets when the six-string has the night off. He is, however, a singer first, which is most evident to those who've heard him belt out the blues, croon a standard or intoning a melody of his own making.
Michael continues to write and record his own music, showcasing his strength as an artist who sings in many voices and a performer who wears many hats.
