I am a singer/songwriter acoustic guitarist and harmonica player. I play mostly covers, though I work every day to increase the amount of original material I have. I play a wide variety of music including but not limited to country, rap, classic rock, bluegrass, folk, etc. If you have a request just let me know what it is and I can learn it. I do both fingerpicking and flat picking.

Gig Length: 30 - 240 minutes
What to Expect
Variety. I can serenade with soft fingerpicking and singing or I can blow you away. Dynamics is a strength of mine as I don't like to be predictable. I always plan a set list in such a way that I can keep attention with highs and lows. I like to establish rapport with an audience by playing songs people know and love and then when I feel I've gained their attention I may throw in an original. I have quite a few originals that I will play but I make sure to spread them out because really, people want to hear songs they know. A client can expect to be entertained. I pay attention to the audience and sometimes depending on what I see I may change my set list if I think an audience is a good fit for a certain song.
My name is Michael Chamberlin and I am a passionate music player. I play my acoustic guitar and I also play the harmonica simultaneously. The songs that I play span a wide range of genres as I enjoy all kinds of music. Anytime I hear a song I like I basically go to work learning it, and if it is not an acoustic song originally I find a way to arrange it so that it works acoustically. I have played music for many years, and I have experience playing in venues which I have done sporadically over the years. I would like to establish consistent gigs, as I am entering graduate school and would like to supplement my current income doing something I love. An event planner can expect that I would be able to cover a large segment of time (several hours) as I have a lot of material to draw from. I am continually learning new music and if a planner has requests all they'd need to do is ask. I have the ability to keep the interest of a crowd, or I am capable of playing in the background, depending on the setting.
