Primary Instrument: Guitar

Composer and guitarist Carl Michel started playing music at a early age, initially inspired by rock and blues guitarists. After high school his interests shifted towards jazz, and after studying for a brief period at the West Bank School Of Music in Minneapolis, he eventually went to Berklee College of Music (1977-1979). In 1980, he moved to Austin, TX, with his brother, percussionist Robert “Booka” Michel, and--with Tina Marsh--became Co- founder of “The Creative Opportunity Orchestra,” a large ensemble dedicated to performing new compositions.

In 1985, he moved to Madison, WI, where he was actively involved with the Madison Music Collective. The Carl Michel Group, featuring Gerald Cleaver on drums, Michael Graye on alto sax and Tim Flood on bass, has been performing in the Detroit area since 1995. He has performed in Austin with Alex Coke, Rich Harney, Rock Savage, and Horacio Rodriguez. In Madison, he performed with Joan Wildman, Hans Sturm, Ray Kaczynski, Dane Richardson, Bill Anschell, Les Thimming, and Scott Fields. In Ft. Worth, Drew Phelps performed with him, and in Detroit, in addition to the musicians who are featured on his recently released CD, he has performed with Mark Hynes, Ken Kellet, and Ron Jackson....
