Michael on Fire
From his beginnings as a songwriter and artist signed by the late-great Don Davis to Groovesville Music working out of Detroit’s famed United Sound Studios, to his earliest recordings with the Muscle Shoals Rhythm Section (“The Swampers”) at Muscle Shoals Sound, to his musical explorations with his avant garde group, Prismatic, as part of the thriving Detroit Jazz Artists scene at Cobb’s Corner, to his time spent in L.A. and Nashville, gigging constantly and making records with the likes of Stephen Stills, Joe Vitale, Phil Kenzie, and many other great producers and musicians, to his many years of non-stop grass-roots touring through every nook and cranny of the country, and right on through to his upcoming two-album set, which features the “California band” that has backed him live and on records for the past four years, Michael Onn Fire has been relentless in his commitment to creative expression and musical performance. He is that rare breed that has lived his entire adult life, uncompromisingly, as a full-time artist, playing all original music.

His music is not confined to, or defined by, any category or genre. As Alan Cackett of Maverick Magazine (UK) wrote, “This is honest, rootsy music by a veteran artist who makes music on his own terms regard­less of current fads and fancies – we celebrate artists like that, especially when the music is of such uniformly high quality.”

In a recent radio interview, Michael said, “Every day is a challenge to maintain our humanity and our dreams. My job is to somehow gift the world with the courage it takes to follow one’s own heart and path; to play that magic chord in a way that I’ve never played it before, and somehow be of service to myself, my children, my family, my friends, my generation, and the people who truly need something beyond the obvious nonsense that we are all faced with on a daily basis.”
