Michael started playing guitar at the age of 14 but was surrounded by music from the very beginning as most of his family play both Guitar and Mandolin. He started playing live shows around his hometown of Plymouth when he was just 17 years old playing Joe Satriani and Steve Vai covers supporting his friends covers band, 'Nowhere Fast'.
By the time Michael was 18 years old he was quickly becoming one of the most popular guitar teachers in his home city of Plymouth and by the time he was 20 years old he had entered the session world playing guitar on many records, making videos for online magazines and even writing jingles for companies all around the world.
Since then, Michael has been focusing on his own music starting with the release of his debut album 'Attack of the Giant Mechanical Man' which features one of the worlds top drummers, Nick D'Virgilio and one of the worlds top bassists, Jon Reshard.
Currently Michael is working on his second record which will likely be released mid-late 2017, and proudly endorses Ernie Ball Musicman Guitars, D'Addario Strings, Red Bear Picks, Wampler Pedals, JHS Pedals, Seymour Duncan Pickups, Evidence Audio Cables, Gruv Gear, Pedal Train Pedal Boards & Hercules Stands .
