My name is Michael and I have been a song writer since the mid 1970's. I have also been recording my own music since the late 70's. Started on an track reel to reel and went through different recording formats as they developed over the years. I currently use Protools and Reason, but use Reason the most because of the integration of virtual instruments. I have owned a couple of small commercial studios, but I just record in a room at the house, which does not have any acoustic sound treatment or anything else special about it. I see that we are required to critic 3 songs for each one we post. I'll do my best, but I am old school and do much better in person. I ran a songwriting group for a year, and love to interact with people, but I have a little trouble interacting to a computer, so bear with me if my answers are kind of short. Sometimes I just don't know how to tell l someone what I think they should do with a song. It is so subjective. Sometimes it just isn't a style I can relate to, or know much about, like hymn writing. I'm no pro writer, just another guy who loves to write the music God puts in my head.
