About the Limited Edition "Wanderer Acoustic" CD Release
We created the full band "Wanderer" project earlier this year as a follow-up to our "Vagabond" full band album that we released in 2013. As part of the "Vagabond" project we also released an acoustic version of the songs on an album titled "Vagabond Acoustic". We appreciated how well received these projects have been ("Vagabond" and "Vagabond Acoustic" have both sold out) and decided to release a limited edition "Wanderer Acoustic" album based on that response.
One of the reasons we were so enthusiastic about "Wanderer" is based on how musically diverse the songs turned out. The actual genre for these songs could be debated but they range from Rock to Folk (do we dare say close to Country)....and these songs performed acoustically only brings out each songs character even further. These songs will be distinct from their counterparts on the full band album. "Wanderer Acoustic" will be unique body of work complemented by artwork by Tony Treloar (the artwork is inspired by lyrics from the song "Life Without Soul" - Bye, Bye Blackbird - Fly away until the morning chokes on sunshine).
Songs on "Wanderer Acoustic" include:
- Until They Turn the Lights Back On
- The Mystery of the North
- Never a Day
- New Song
- Jacob's Ladder
- She's the Owl
- Life Without Soul
- Man Versus Train
Here are a few song clips from "Wanderer Acoustic"
Mystery of the North
Life Without Soul
We have tried to create an easy project regarding pledge levels. Examples include:
- Individual copies of the new "Wanderer Acoustic" CD
- Signed copies of the new "Wanderer Acoustic" CD
- A combo pack of a full band "Wanderer" CD plus the new "Wanderer Acoustic" CD
- A combo pack of a full band "Wanderer" CD plus the new "Wanderer Acoustic" CD - both signed by Michale
- Hand written lyrics and hand drawn tattoo art (that each include a signed "Wanderer Acoustic" CD
- A phone call (or Skype) from Michale - and he will sing a Christmas carol to you and your friends
- A rare set of Michale's stage used all access passes (only 1 set available)
- A few in-person performances where I come and play for you live - and this time we are adding a component to those very intimate personal performances. We are creating a documentary of these performances – called Wanderer Acoustic on the Road. For this project I will be traveling with a camcorder and will be recording you talking about how and why my music impacts you. So in this way you can be part of a really special documentary about me, you and my music. And hey if you don’t want to be on camera that is cool too….Your name will be included in the credits.
The involvement and interaction of fan’s and supporters is dear to Michale. Your involvement adds the perfect degree on connection Michale needs to create and perform.
A word about shipping costs
We charge for shipping costs (envelop or box and USPS postage) - we try to break even but this is not a profit center.

Michale entered the music scene in 1995 in a huge way – as lead singer for legendary rock band The Misfits. After a successful run with the band, Michale separated from The Misfits in 2001, and he counts that time as a gift that he will always cherish with love and respect, for the band and all of the fans that experienced the electrifying in concert musical experiences the band created. After the Misfits, Michale formed several bands and performed solo throughout the US. With each phase in his career Michale has evolved his voice and the musical experiences that he creates. At the center of his music is the consistent tour of venues in the US and throughout the world. Performing for, entertaining and interacting with fans has always been the driving factor for Michale as a performer.
