Album Notes
Michael Rivers is a Berklee trained songwriter with decades’ worth of songs and a brand new CD, “My Father’s Face.” Recorded at David Lange Studios, the CD boasts the talents of Pacific Northwest musicians Mark Ivester (drums), Jennifer Lind Ivester (vocals), Dan Mohler (fretless bass), Larry Murante (vocals), Dan Cobb (Vocals), Gary Gibson (steel drum), Joey Gish (violin) and Scott Burnett (producer/guitars).

This heartfelt tapestry of ten songs explores Michael’s relationship with his father, his own role as a father to his four children as well as looks at being in a relationship with a Heavenly Father. His mellow tenor voice, piano and acoustic guitar skills make for easy listening.

"Michael Rivers is a singer songwriter from the Pacific Northwest with a big voice. Michael sings with a purity and with clear lyrics. The instrumentation is carefully arranged, and the songs are well formed and original, with a focus on melody."

"The title tune 'My Father's Face' is certainly an idea that will resonate – trying to reclaim memories of a father. 'The Winds of Summer' is full of flowers, outdoors, gardening "...in our backyard." 'Blanket of Stars' has a catchy rhythm. 'Fields of Wonder' confirms that Michael Rivers strives for large sounds and the big picture. 'Please, Please, Please' begins with blues approach on guitar and mates this with a choral modern hymn, containing a prayer, "grant me peace". Michael has added voices in Hebrew, Spanish, French, Korean and German."

"This style of writing makes me think of musical theater with each song telling a story or playing a part in a story. Somewhat classical in his style, Michael does well with a large range including the upper register."

[Bob Riley/Victory Review]
