"He's got the Blues"

Micheal Lee Seiler did not have a longstanding relationship with the blues when he entered the Mid-North Michigan Blues Challenge. Although the Boyne City resident had played music for....years, the blues had only been part of his repertoire for about two.... However, in competition on Nov. 21 at Streeters Ground Zero night Club in Traverse City, the singer-songwriter placed first in the solo/duo acoustic class. This earned hin a spot at the upcoming International Blues Challenge in Memphis Tenn. Feb 4-7. - Maggie Peterson/ Petoskey News Review

With a knack for new arrangements of old standards, a heart for Regional & Traditional music, and a love for Folk, Country, Blues and Rock, Michael is able to blend a diverse spectrum of styles with an ever growing compilation of original music.
