ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
In a professional career spanning four decades, Michael on Fire has forged an eclectic path as a musical artist, having traveled millions of miles, playing original music hundreds of dates a year, for years on end, all over the country, in every kind of environment - from bars to beautiful theaters, private homes to outdoor festivals, in mines and on mountaintops, from playing in prisons to performing for Presidents of the United States. Along the way, he has
attracted a loyal audience that finds food for the soul in his words and music and his emotional expression.

“Michael on Fire is one of our leading troubadours. He has the elusive, inspirational quality of a cult
hero.” - The Rock City News (Hollywood, CA)

His sound grows naturally out of the roots of American music, and encompasses its broad range of styles – from country to blues, jazz to rock, rural to urban, vocal and instrumental music, acoustic and electric.

“It’s an American roots, folkish, bluesy, country, tribal, gypsy rock and roll.” – The Huntsville Times

He’s been featured on Entertainment Tonight, CNN, FOX News and his music has appeared in film, TV and stage
productions. His online presence through networks such as YouTube has reached millions of viewers and provides further evidence of his worldwide cult status.

“I found your music from your videos on YouTube. I have been listening for months. Your music has
changed my life by leading me to places in myself that I had either forgotten about or never suspected
were there and I want to thank you for that. What you put into your music is exactly what the world
needs today.” – Ann

In January, 2010, The Ventura County Star (Ventura, CA) named his performance from Oct. 2009 as one
of the Top Five Concerts of the Year (others chosen were Brian Wilson, Paul McCartney, Paul Thorn
and Steve Poltz.)

His new album, "Always Yes," was recorded in studios outside of Detroit and Los Angeles; outside being the operative word, as he has carved a niche outside the mainstream of the music industry.

“I didn’t set out to operate outside of the music industry,” said MOF, “I’ve just always been very clear about who and what I am, and what I do, and I’ve been resolute in upholding my musical and moral ideals.”

That strength of conviction resonates through every performance.

“The music is unmistakably passionate, wedding Michael’s penchant for dust ‘n’ bones guitar
arrangements with his classically-trained musical sensibilities. The result is a sound that is primal,
raw and powerful. When I caught his live show last Sunday, his words seemed like gospel. He is an
electrifying performer”. – The (East Lansing) State News
