Biography

Singer/songwriter Michael Rossback draws musical inspiration from his twenty some years of life, coupling eloquent prose with beautiful melodies. Rossback traces the roots of his music career to when he first began playing base. Shortly thereafter, he picked up acoustic guitar and lyrics naturally followed. His smooth, emotionally driven vocals bring the lyrics of his songs to life with each passing bar. Rossback has been writing music for more than a decade and attributes his best songs to moments of inspiration � whether fleeting or fixed, divine or external. His musical influences � Radiohead, Damien Rice, Pete Yorn and Teitur � have unknowingly offered creative drive.

Beginning on the bass and acoustic guitar, he soon found an interest for the piano and electronic approaches to his music and writing. After graduating college he started a studio where he began to record his music as well as producing other local and national talent.

But after spending the last few years touring the country (and just recently, the world), lending a hand on stage and in the studio with fellow musicians, Michael admits he feels the time is right to start focusing his ability and efforts towards his own music.

Michael has slowly and quietly built a fan base around a handful of songs that he wrote and recorded but never pushed. "I would have never let any music out my door if it weren't for friends insisting. I didn't even get my music out. They did it for me."

Now with a band and a full albums worth of new music, Michael looks to take his music to people and places that it has never been before. With such an enthusiastic response from fans of old and new it appears that the road ahead is an exciting one.

Lyrics

On The Wire

Written By: Michael Rossback

On the wire
We are holding to
You are on to me
And I'm on to you

We could take it slow
See just where it leads
Maybe drop the rules
That they put on you and me

This is everything I've wanted
I'll make it everything you've wanted
I'll be

Would you slow it down?
Cause I've lost control
I'm not holding back
And you wont let go

So carry my name for a day
To see how it suits
I know you'll feel it
Maybe we'll make our mistakes
But I'll always know just what you're feeling

Cause I believe in love
I believe in love

So pull this car over
And let me love on you
Shadows of covers
Uncover you

Carry Me On

Written By: Michael Rossback

Isn't it strange
That you can be someone today
Tomorrow can take that away
From you

And isn't it strange
That you can care for someones soul
You hold on tight just to let go
Did you let go

Just let me be
To walk alone
On empty streets
With all the things you might say
Carry me on

And change
Is all that we are looking for
We have it all but still we want more
Oh no

I worry about the blame
For all the years that Ive lived for me
Ive found out that nothing could please me
Until I give it away

Just let me be
To walk alone
On empty streets
With all the things you might say
Carry me on

I could change
Just show me where to put my faith
Im a fake
But aren't we all?
Yeah aren't we all?

Just let me be

Just let me be
To walk alone
On empty streets
With all the things you might say
Carry me on

Sight Of Love

Written By: Michael Rossback

I'm in the palm of your hand tonight
Having trouble sleeping
I'm wondering if your thinking of me
And wondering if your dreaming of me

Take a drive to you I might
Wake you in the middle of the night
And ask you if your dreaming of me
Cus you know I'm thinking of you

Oh the sight of love
Can make you wanna turn your life around
Make you wanna live for someone else
Someone who relies on no one else

I'm holding onto all I know
And all I know is letting go
I'm feeling like I'm taking under
And loving every second of it

This could take a day or so
To convince you of what I already know
Then you'll say you never wonder
What life could be like with another

I'm holding onto you
No one else could ever do

Oh the sight of love
Can make you wanna turn your life around
Make you wanna live for someone else
Someone who relies on no one else
