ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
REM. David Gray. Sting. U2. And even America - these are the groups that fans have said Michael Wu's music sounds similar to. Yet, people who have known him for years can still hear Steve Harris (Iron Maiden) or Geddy Lee (Rush) somewhere in the bass lines. Michael's debut has strong roots in progressive rock, as well as intelligent pop music. It is a refreshing mix of creative lyrics and memorable compositions. His debut solo CD combines creative vocal melodies and progressive twists with modern rock structures.

Released in December of 2002, Michael's debut solo album, "Wu", represented a first for a couple of things: he wrote all the music and lyrics, and performed the guitar as well as his main gig, bass. His music ended up being a cross between his early influences in progressive music, and his delve into pop / singer-songwriter styles.

Michael lives in upstate NY where he works for Hewlett-Packard during the day. When he's not at his day gig, he's working on tunes, playing with his children, and watching baseball.

Good music, but its better live!
Its a good CD...pretty prog rocky I think. Not too hard, not too soft. Some pop sensibility, but occassionally adds some dissonance to the music to keep things interesting. If you like the music, and you live in the NE USA, you should check him out live! He sings in concert, unlike the CD, and i think the songs benefit from this.

Jesse Wells

A powerful progressive pop-rock album. Full of great hooks!
This is one of those rare albums that are worth listening to from beginning to end. The entire experience, from the order of the songs to the flow of dynamics, is a reminder of how an album should be packaged. There is a loose concept that winds its way through each song. It’s a dual theme of breaking away from some aspects of life, while learning how to accept and take comfort in others. Each song has its own identity, and carries melody lines and riffs that will stick with you. You’ll find yourself jamming to these tunes in your head long after you leave your car or turn off your stereo.

Awesome CD
I was in search of some new, talented musicians so I decided to buy this album. Gave it a listen and I definately got what I wanted. Love this cd, especially "Drive", "Stop Look And Listen" and "The Hard Way." Give this cd a listen, you won't be dissapointed.
