Born in Southern California in late 1951,
I grew up with music all around me.
From the Classical standards to '40's & '50's Jazz,
From "American Bandstand" to "Wolfman Jack",
Buddy Holly to Jimi Hendrix, They all left their mark.
I've played in bands since my early teens, and all of those musicians I have performed with have left their marks as well.
I thank them all.
The songs I offer here are the result of that long journey.
They include, live band recordings, local collaborations, internet collaborations, and home solo projects.

Thank You for listening,
Michael Duran.
