Meet Michael the Band: a symbiotic duo from Seattle who come together to create a new harmonious fusion of sound that defies convention.Mike Vernon Davis: Rising star producer/multi-instrumentalist who helped shape Pool Kids critically acclaimed self-titled 2022 LP and Great Grandpas 2019 breakout, Four of Arrows. Writing and recording music was Mikes passion from a very young age. He eventually found his true beat under the mentorship of legendary producer Steve Fisk. From there, it has been an unstoppable ascent, starting with an internship at the Modest Mouse studio Ice Cream Party. A cold-call led to an apprenticeship with Chris Walla, formerly of Death Cab for Cutie, that evolved into MIkes role as the primary studio engineer / producer at Wallas The Hall of Justice studio in Seattle.Harry Michael Smith: Enigmatic, spiritual wanderer dedicated to creating beautiful things. Harry is a talented songwriter, vocalist and musician and a stalwart of the Seattle indie scene. As a skilled designer / contractor Harry has had an instrumental role in physically building the infrastructure of the Seattle music production community, one studio at a time: notably Andy Parks The Crumb and Trevor Spencers The Way Out. He is a rugged poet with the soul of a revolutionary who is not afraid to speak his heart and mind, come what may.As Michael the Band, these two longtime friends and collaborators have finally come together to unleash ideas that have been percolating for years. Listeners will hear a shared and unrelenting quest for authenticity and attention to detail in every song. From sweeping, shifting cinematic scores that recall David Bowie, The Cure or Peter Gabriel to bright, multi-layered pop tunes ala Arcade Fire or MGMT, Michael the Band seeks to take you on a thought-provoking journey with impeccably crafted music that is just enough familiar to make it easy to slip into something completely new.
