Ten Minutes Over the Wheel
A musical representation of one of the cultural cross-sections of America. A mixed heritage ranging from Native American (Blackfoot) to the farmers of Kentucky, to the hills of West Virginia. Michael never consciously decided to bring out these roots in his music, although, as he has learned our roots are inevitable. By embracing these roots, you help keep your ancestors alive. 'If music is truly from the heart it should have the ability to move you.' It was in search of music that may invoke that very cord, which inspired the diversity of sound and culture implemented into this current release. Follow-up to "O-Glepi," includes more use of odd time signatures, more finger-style picking, dynamic more structured. Yet, it includes an even more diverse cultural feel with a broader mix of ethnic music, and still pulls off the heart and soul that is presented in "O-Glepi." 'It's helped me mourn two lost loved ones. It's helped soothe me when stressed. It's helped inspire me when I write. A fantastic, atmospheric, sublime spiritual journey!'
