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.
