If I Had My Way
Michael \'b\' is not really a band but a total indie artist/songwriter, recording engineer, musician and CD producer. I own freedom express records in albuquerque new Mexico and record all my own songs. I play all the instruments heard and do all the background vocals myself. Friends can get all my CD\'s by emailing me at freedomexpressrecords@msn.Com. Or go to website of freedomexpressrecords.Com. I was born in Columbus, Ohio and grew up and learned to play music at the age of 6. I studied piano and played brass instruments in school and college. Spent 8 years in the army during the viet nam episode and learned to play guitar and other string instruments and also formed several different country and blues bands. In the 70\'s my bands opened up for countless country stars including conway twitty, all the hee haw cast members, chuck berry whom we backed up one year at fairs and festivals around the Indiana, Ohio and Illinois area. I have worked with mel tillis, johnny russell, freddy weller, doyle holly, susan raye, mickey gilley, and many many others. I drove show tour buses, and played piano and lead guitar. I wrote my first song, \'some new place some new you\' in 1972 and recorded it on a 45 rpm record. Since then i have been writing a lot of songs and recording them in my own studios. I now have a 48 track digital studio here in albuquerque where i\'m still putting all my songs on CD\'s. I love what i\'m doing and have the support of a fantastic wife of 27 years. I have 4 children and 10 grandchildren and 4 great grandkids in Columbus, Ohio and love them all. God bless everyone and i care about all my friends.
