In 2018 he released the single “Behind My Eyes'' with professional vocalist LeeLoo.

These days Michael performs as guitarist for the hard rock/heavy metal band “He Betrays”. The band’s made up of seasoned metalheads from the band Blood Corps as well as “Encasing Embrace”.
The young artist has been around music his whole life. Hailing from a musical family he was inspired early on by his father who performed in bands and would play his favorite songs on the home stereo. It wasn’t until he saw Deep Purple live at the age of eight that he actualized his dreams of being a professional musician. As Michael got older he started to teach himself drums. After getting a basic understanding of rhythm he set his sights on guitar — often practicing for hours on end each day. By the age of 16 he was performing in local bands and hasn’t looked back since.
