Performing this week :
Michael Solan is a lyricist, singer, producer, and multi-instrumentalist. He studied Creative Writing at California State University, Long Beach.
His range of musical influence is extremely diverse, reflected in his crossover style of songwriting and approach to production. Early on, Solan was inspired by traditional American folk music, including early blues recordings by Robert Johnson and Leadbelly, and strong lyrical influence by Bob Dylan & Lou Reed.
Michael Solan wrote and sang for Big Bad Rooster (LA’s #1 Bluegrass band!), performing at venues such as STAPLE’S Center, Anaheim Convention Center, and Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas.
Recently, Solan returned to his Howard County roots to write and record new styles of music, and create an extensive portfolio of original music. He currently teaches Drums, Bass, Guitar, and Vocals at Soundcheck Rock Academy in Columbia, MD.
