Making Musical Memories in Michigan Part 4

Phil Wintermute

Though he is no longer with us, Phil had an effect on people that is hard to explain.  He was loved by so many and held dear.  He always encouraged other musicians just to play, "And when you have 8 or 9 songs, record a cd."  It was so basic with him.  There was no magic formula, just embracing the spirit of playing heartfelt music AND sharing it.  We'd go to Dagwoods and Altus while Phil played and just soak it up.

Making Musical Memories in Michigan Part 3

Brandon Foote (& Gifts and Creatures)

Worked with Brandon for a little over a year.  Always upbeat, pleasant, humble.  A musician unlike many others.  Throughout the years and his various musical involvements, there is a commonality of good humble ROOT music.  Just feels like it's a part of you.

Making Musical Memories in Michigan Part 1

I could write all day about the music in Michigan.  So I'll turn this into about a 10-15 part series.  Don't let that sound boring.  It's anything but.  Just listen as I put tracks up.
