Having listened to and played alongside Michael for the past year I cannot express how much of an accomplished, talented and professional performer he is, not to mention his incredible ability on the piano accordion. Michael resonates an appealing stage persona and has performed at venues such as the Sage Gateshead, supporting finalist musicians in their final recitals- a performance of paramount importance to the upcoming music scene.
