It was a distinct pleasure to meet Michael on Maui and get a copy of “Hawaiian Paradise” from the artist himself! It is a beautiful collection of songs recorded in amazing fidelity that capture the beauty of Maui, the laid back bustle of Lahaina and everythng wonderful about Hawaii.
I also picked up a signed copy of the Hawaiian Paradise album while in Lahaina. Michael and his wife had a display booth set up at the Banyon Tree and the music being generated by Michael and his Chapman Stick really got my attention. The Hawaiian Paradise album has a wonderful mix of relaxing music that is perfect for unwinding after a busy day at work. I’ve also put the entire album on my iPhone. 🙂
I heard you play 3 times in 2007 starting with Maui County Fair venue; I am looking forward to more in Sept & Oct 08. Did you ever meet Courtney Branch? He is an amature musician, lives in the same complex you do. Great website! I look forward to adding your Hawaiian album to the two I already have. K
