Michael Chandler's music has been described as landing somewhere musically yet more over cosmically between Ben Harper and Jeff Buckley, with poetic attire paralleling at times Elliott Smith or even Adam Duritz of Counting Crows. "Chandler embraces modern artistic confusion with edgy and heavy acoustic guitar sounds...that make the listener long for the thrust of a seemingly wounded rock revolution." What makes Michael's CD 'Love Ethic' unique is his solid combination of a rich and resonant baritone voice with his acoustic guitar, serving alongside a humble yet obvious talent for songwriting, all of which makes for a very engaging listen. 'Love Ethic' covers a lot of songwriting ground. Alluring imagery unfold masterfully in the song 'Damage,' while 'We Are Done,' proves a beautifully executed yet undecorated break-up ballad that's been featured on MTV's 'Real World Key West.' Haunting vocal melodies of the acoustical 'Seven Stories,' featured in the film 'End of Blue,' and 'Circle of Darkness' each deal artistically with a story of personal or creative loss, while 'Bring it On' and 'On a Drug' march forward slow, dark and heavy guitar grinds paired with velvety, brooding vocals. Rounding out 'Love Ethic' are more up-tempo tunes like 'California Moon, Your Game and Waves of Absolute' that bring forth indie/modern arrangements of a classic singer/songwriter style of writing, with 'Waves of Absolute' being a featured song on MTV's 'Road Rules.'
