Michael’s musical career began at a young age. He recalls the jam sessions that his grandfather would have with members of the Texas Playboys.
“ I remember watching my grandfather and the other musicians playing the classic Country-Western tunes of Bob Wills, Chet Atkins, Asleep at the Wheel, George Strait, and many others. I was probably too young to really appreciate it; however, I feel that it had a tremendous impact on my love for music. Each time I saw my grandfather play I experienced excitement...I saw passion...I saw raw talent at it’s finest. I knew that this was something that I wanted to experience myself. He would occasionally let me sing a song with the band when they were ready for a break...but to me, it was much more. I think this was when the bug first bit me...Well...that...and the fact that I am the only BOY in my family caused me to crave for a little attention.”
Michael, being a devout member of the Church, began leading the congregational singing at North Amarillo Church of Christ when he was eight years old. Although he had to stand on a stool to reach the podium, his presence was still demanding. To this day he remains strong in his faith and continues to lead singing for his congregation when the opportunity presents itself.
Michael grew to love all types of music. Growing up, he listened to genres like Country-Western, Gospel, Standards, and Rock N Roll Oldies. As he grew older, he fell in love with the more Pop, Rock, and R&B sounds. He would even listen to the occasional Rap and Heavy Metal when the opportunity presented itself. By listening to ALL genres of music, Michael has developed a style that appeals to ALL audiences.
“My influences are so obscure, it’s difficult to pin point my own genre. I don’t want my musical style to be put inside a box. I can say that I enjoy the stylings of Elvis Presley, Frank Sinatra, the Beatles, Michael Jackson, Steven Tyler, Freddie Mercury, Jerry Lee Lewis, James Brown, Jackie Wilson...the list goes on and on. I can say that I am a musician and that I love ALL types of music. I’m sure ALL musicians can say that. That’s why I categorize myself as an ENTERTAINER. As an entertainer, I can do it all. Where an audience places my music...or my sound...it is merely up to them. I entertain an audience not only with my music, but also with my performance. I want everyone that sees me to to experience a show that touches every emotion. I ENTERTAIN!”
