Originally from Connecticut, Michael moved to Boston in 1980 to attend the Berklee College of Music. After graduating Cum Laude in 1984, he was a founding member of what would turn out to be one of Boston's most successful local acts, "High Function". With High Function, Michael played extensively at clubs and colleges throughout the New England area. Other performance experience's included a three-week tour of Switzerland, appearances in New York City, recording an eight-song album in Chicago, and performing in a marketing film produced by the Bose Corporation.

After leaving High Function, Michael went on to co-find and play guitar in the Boston Music Award winning R&B band "Universal Language". Another very popular local group, nominated for awards each year of their existence, Universal Language credits include performances in the Boston Garden, Fleet Center, and at The House of Blues. He was also the Co-Producer of their CD entitled "One People"; a release well received on the local music scene.

In addition to playing with the bands, Michael was teaching himself the art of recording and composition, and during 1997 he built a recording studio in his home. He has also worked outside the house as a freelance recording engineer, and as an author of articles pertaining to composition/recording, has been published numerous times in the international periodical "Recording Magazine", The SonicScoop website and the Berklee College of Music alumni magazine 'Berklee Today'.

As a composer using his home studio (Studio Nine Productions), he has licensed original music of many different styles for NBC, ABC and CBS television, including the popular primetime shows "The Biggest Loser", and "The Voice". In addition, his original music has been used on many cable TV networks including VH1, MTV, ShowTime, HBO and Comedy Central.

International "custom composition" clients include Macmillan Educational Publishing the Mexico and UK branches for whom he has written hundreds of pieces of music used in the education of children.

Hi Michael (Studio Nine Productions), Hope you don't mind me contacting you, but I see you were also chosen for a non-exclusive listing by Eddie Of The Sea (Bollywood and Indian tracks for new catalogue listing). Eddie has sent me a contract but it is EXCLUSIVE and the listing stated NON-EXCLUSIVE? Did this happen to you? I've pulled him up over it and waiting for a reply? Regards, David

Hi David, yes, I noticed the same. I haven't responded to his email yet. Tomorrow I plan to write broadjam to get a refund, as I never would have submitted if I'd known it was exclusive. I'll probably write Music of the Sea also on Monday and tell them Broadjam messed up the listing (even though it could have been Eddie messing it up). See what happens from there...

Thanks for your reply! Eddie did exactly the same thing to me in 2016? He agreed to send me an nonexclusive contract so I signed it and sent about 15 tracks (retitled) but he never downloaded them? His company seem a bit unprofessional. If he gets back to me with another nonexclusive contract I'm reluctant to let him have more than a couple of tracks!

Awesome music
