Much of the subject matter in Michael's songs stem from a spiritual awakening he experienced when he was 22 years old...

"...It was as if I was listening to one radio station all my life, then suddenly realized that my tuner was able to bring in so many other stations. I became permeable to the sweetness of life that surrounds us, that I had not felt since I was a child."

"Since then, I've been keenly interested in studying practices that cultivated this type of awareness -- such as prayer, yoga, meditation, and service to others. Although all of these are instrinsic parts of my life, music has shown itself to be the most effective. It is my primary spiritual practice."

Michael's performances are often a blend of music, poetry, personal stories, and group musical interaction.

Michael currently resides in Southern California.
