Biography

Ive been very lucky to have the musical experiences Ive had. At a very young age I traveled the world with three likeminded peers and our own take on musical expression called Mind Over Four. We played shows from Memphis to Rome, holding court in clubs, squats and theaters and making noise in the alternative underground, we opened for bands as diverse as The Vandals, Janes Addiction, The Fall, and Pantera. We recorded six albums on six different independent labels and toured non-stop, seeing the world from highway to venue.
It was these experiences that brought me the opportunity to become a touring guitarist for the industrial music pioneers KMFDM, touring throughout the US, Canada and Europe. I worked with them for several years and appeared in their documentary Beat by Beat and video Juke Joint Jezebel.
After KMFDM, I was hired to work for the Joan Jones Band and ended up becoming a main touring/recording guitarist and a co-writer on her Brown Blonde album. Returning to Los Angeles after long tours always inspired new perspective. New inspiration combined with the pasts rich education, would lead me to my own songwriting voice.
Ive been performing as a solo artist, writing songs and recording with a variety of talented musicians. This new release, Balls and Blind Faith, had me working in an amazing analog environment in Hollywood CA., with some of the best musicians Ive ever met. We took our time to craft this little taste of things to come.

Lyrics

Blue Light Woman

Written By: Micheal Fordays

Clear the smoke of my sins
I can change the man I've been
I can rise to the light
Come on woman, help me make things right

Words of sorrow, I have these
Windows to my memories
When I dream of roads that I've been on
It makes me wish for days that have gone

Now slowly, Blue Light Woman
Round full moon
July long sky

Are you broke by love?
I am too
Were you left to stand alone you fool?
Did you love blindly with your heart, just to have it torn apart?

Now rolling, silent night
Blue Light Woman on my mind

Pieces

Written By: Micheal Fordays

Meet me here tomorrow
I've got a feeling this time
Two days later and its 8 hundred miles wrong
Girl, call me with it later

I'm worn to stone
I'm broken bone
I'm in Pieces
I'm all alone
I'm broken bone
I'm in Pieces
I've got a feeling this time

I've been struck by Holy lightning
I've got a feeling this time
Everything I am is ahead of me now
What is dry has burned and crumbled

I'm worn to stone
I'm broken bone
I'm in Pieces
I'm all alone
I'm broken bone
I'm in Pieces
I've got a feeling this time

You've got to go and I'd love to see you play
but i'm still living from my suitcase

I'm worn to stone
I'm broken bone
I'm in Pieces
I'm all alone
I'm broken bone
I'm in Pieces
I've got a feeling this time
