Artist biography

Michael has been writing songs since he was 20. Someone he shared a house with heard Michael playing in his bedroom and said he should play in public. He followed her tip and has being doing so ever since. He played regularly in coffee shops, bars, hotels, restaurants and folk clubs in Adelaide, and overseas through the 70s, 80s and 90s – mostly solo but with occasional forays into duets, trios, and groups. He spent a couple of years busking and playing music for a living in Europe and Israel.
He describes his music as 'contemporary acoustic' (a blend of folk, pop, rock and country). His musical influences include Gordon Lightfoot, Ian Anderson (of Jethro Tull), Leo Kottke, Vin Garbutt, his mother, his brother Shaun, life and traveling.
