Michael moved to San Francisco in the early 90’s and fell under the tutelage of his now close friend and longtime bluesman, Johnny Nitro. Thanks to Johnny’s encouragement, Michael developed his own style and set off on his own to front an electric blues trio
Michael has played his blistering yet soulful guitar from coast to coast. He has performed with or opened for the likes of BB King, The Fabulous Thunderbirds, W.C. Clark, CoCo Montoya, Sonny Rhodes, Walter Trout, Ben E. King, Del Shannon, Little Anthony, Jimmy Johnson, Otis Rush and Chuck Berry
Michael now calls Southwest Ohio his home and continues to receive praise as one of the premier blues guitarists in the area. His newest CD, Get Offended, Live contains cuts that will get you dancing and cuts that will leave you shaking your head and wondering, How does he DO that? The CD covers live shows from the Repeat Offenders recorded in Florida and California.
