Almighty American

With a deep appreciation for the songwriting greats of his father’s generation, drummer-turned-guitarist Michael Gay has set out to leave his own mark with Almighty American. "I've learned a lot about empathy through songwriting,” Gay told City Pages. "I try to do the story justice and not always go for the easy rhyme.” His approach to songwriting pairs with a classic Americana sensibility and feel to breed earnest songs with melodies that stick with the listener. Influences such as old literature, cowboys, and the open road can be heard and felt throughout his debut full-length album, Somewhere Ride, available now.
