Michael received piano lessons as a young boy and his dreams of becoming a professional pianist became more solidified over time. "…Seeing George Winston live at the Academy Of Music with my mom when I was a young boy solidified that dream for me." From that point on, the pathway to the present was, of course, not always a straight line. "I studied Suzuki piano…until I graduated high school with Glorianna Sewell of Milford Square Music Studios. I went on to study music composition and piano performance at Temple University in Philly with Dr. Maurice Wright (composition) and Dr. Charles Abramovic (piano)… in college I started playing with various bands…becoming attracted to 'Jam Bands' and I became sought after as a piano player for studio work. I’ve performed and recorded with countless bands and artists [and] performed steadily with the Grateful Dead tribute band, Splintered Sunlight since 2001. I only recently started branching off into solo piano work, which was always my first true love."
In 2020, Michael gained the attention of Windham Hill Records founder and Grammy winning producer/artist, Will Ackerman. The result of Will's interest was a trip to Ackerman's Imaginary Road Studios in rural Vermont where Michael recorded Peace Valley. It was a dream come true for the pianist.
