Making Up Songs

“When I hear a songwriter taking up valuable airspace but not singing, what I’ll settle for getting from him is some indication of his working methods, maybe new ways to look at songwriting. I want to know if this songwriter is doing something I’m not, hey, I can always use the info. When songwriters talk about the occupation, the job, everybody’s different yet everyone’s the same. The unique part is how it’s verbalized. But the path is always the same.  I followed this path that songwriters follow. Way before I started trying to play the guitar…”

Track 2. Making Up Songs


  1. I have been a huge fan of Michael’s music since seeing him at the old Flick Coffeehouse in Coral Gables, FL in the ’60s. One of our greatest living songwriting artists…… Michael, your songs still continue to move me. And whenever people will listen to me, I try to spread the word about your work…. Thanks for continuing to bring such beauty into the world! Any chance you could get up to Maine sometime? Several great music venues in the Portland area, including One Longfellow Square; Last Church on the Left; St. Lawrence Arts Center; others.
    Best. Bob Foster, South Portland, Maine

  2. Bobby Ingram introduced us at Monty’s in the Grove in 73. I moved to Nashville soon after and succeeded at being an assembly line songwriter. Once I had aspirations I was reminded of listening to you in the clip above. Any workshops planned in the near future/?

  3. I’m excited to get my order of 2 of Michael’s “Songwriting Album” CD’s! Do you know how long it will take? One is a gift and is a bit time sensitive.
