Sit & Watch It Spin
A funky rockin' R&B roux with a fiery pop flavor, this dish is served with a fine wine and Get Up and Move pudding. Michael Bliss Band is a full meal with all the trimmings. They pull from a deep bag of influences, such as Stevie Wonder, Prince, Hendrix, and Lenny Kravitz, among others. Michael's debut release 'Sit andWatch It Spin' on G.A.M. Records gives listeners the taste of soulful pop tunes, tight melodic hooks and guitar lines that beg to be sung. The band's high-energy shows have been shakin' crowds throughout the region. With a tour through the southwest United States completed, and an incredible week of shows in New York, Michael Bliss takes show-goers on a wild 'Rocket' ride through the Groove System. As a prolific songwriter and singer, Michael has drawn upon the sounds and rhythms of his childhood--from the American textures of jazz, blues, and pop, to the R&B songcraft of Muscle Shoals and Fame Studios, to the gospel roots of his childhood. You will find examples of all these styles on 'Sit and Watch It Spin,' but Michael feels they're all different takes on the same thing. 'It's all music with feel,' says Michael. Real music. Soul music. If you enjoy soulful vocals, blazing solos, and a blisteringly funky rhythm section, make the Michael Bliss Band a must on your 'to see' list. 'It's fun to write and record your music, but it's all about the playing to me,' says Bliss. 'When we step to the stage, it's all about the people. You put aside the cares of the world, and leave all the self-serving artist business in the van. It's show time, and that's why we're there.' And a show is what you get from the Michael Bliss Band. Guaranteed to make you move.
