March 20th we welcome our Special Guest
Since first making a name for himself as a young guitar prodigy in the southern Ontario region, Mike Branton has evolved into a triple threat. He has now emerged as a highly talented and original singer and songwriter. Mike has been honing his song writing chops and is currently in the studio recording a keenly anticipated new album.
Fronting his own bands helped Branton, now 35, discover his own voice both as a blues singer and songwriter. "I don't think I found the beginning of my groove until I was about 22," he recalls. "That's when I thought to myself 'it's time to get serious'. You can only be a guitar player in a blues band for so long before you have to bring something else to the table. You have to be able to sing and carry a night yourself."
Branton has been featured by, played and recorded with a who's who of Canadian and American artists: Jeff Healy, Michael Pickett, George "Wildchild" Butler, Chicago Pete, King Biscuit Boy, David Clayton Thomas and Stu Heydon, to name a few.
Having said all of this about Michael Branton, the only thing you really need to know is that the man has talent. You will be mesmerized by his guitar solos. No watching the clock when Michael is in his groove.
