I am an americana singer/songwriter who writes and performs original songs as well as cover songs to audiences around the country. I mostly fingerpick and utilize a fine tuned sense of dynamics to build and breakdown with the intensity of a full band. I sing as well and demand the audiences attention with each performance.

Michael Corwin is a meticulous songwriter, from Toledo, Ohio. Michael grew up in a diverse musical home, with his mother performing regularly with both bar and swing bands throughout the Midwest. Michael spent his pre-teen years listening to his father’s vinyl and tapes, which inspired him to start learning guitar from his dad. After high school, unsure of his future, Michael spent his days behind a chicken fryer and doing odd jobs to make money. At the age of 21, Michael began touring internationally and continued this for three years. After the demise of his band, his interest in classic artists such as, Steve Earle, Woody Guthrie, Lyle Lovett, and Townes Van Zandt began to influence his own songwriting. His music captures the joys and hardships of the common man, with songs that are relatable, authentic descriptions of life. His songs hold a nice balance of skilled musicianship with enduring melodies that create a brand of narrative country-folk that’s direct, yet poetic. Michael’s first full length album, “Last Cigarette Promises” is now available.
