Biography

While there are a number of "guitar greats" to choose from and plenty of vocalists filling the stages, it is a rare performer who combines both. Rolling Stone Magazine dubbed Miché, "...a quiet storm," and his shows combine that intensity with a playful spontaneity that engages both the senses and the hearts of those who listen. In his most recent review from ListenersGeneration.com, the author writes, "This guy is not only a classical guitar virtuoso; he's got a set of vocal pipes that are unbelievable." He goes onto describe "a fantastic performance unlike any I've ever heard."

If you are seeking an unforgettable Jazz-flavored show, Miché brings a crooner's voice to standards and originals, performing with a duo or full band - www.youtube.com/watch?v=eCc_KuNV8oY. For a sample of his solo acoustic shows, see video attached to this EPK.

Miché has toured the U.S. and Canada during the past several years, finding enthusiastic audiences in both major cities and tiny towns. He brings a professional attitude, a light-hearted sense of humor, and a musical show that is often called "a breath of fresh air" to festivals, concert halls, house concerts, coffeehouses and colleges everywhere and anywhere.

Miché also produces an online video series titled, "Guitar Lessons" which captures experiences and characters and lessons learned while making a life as a guitarist. Your event may well provide the backdrop for the next episode....

Lyrics

Hope

Written By: Miché Fambro

Hope

I'm just the sum of the things I've seen

in my life, in my dreams

I got lost trying to find the bright side

I know the sun is shining but I can't see the light

But I've got hope

I've got hope

Yes I've got hope

Because somewhere, sometime,

Something is going to make some sense

I'm living with the choices I've made for me

The man I am, the man I want to be

I love this world, but I don't like some folks in it

But I don't stew in a cynical view

I'll tell you why

I've got hope... (Chorus)

Where's my friends? Where's my brother?

Don't know you, I don't know my neighbor

Souls empty and pockets full

And can't find no one responsible

But I've got hope... (Chorus)

Man of Straw

Written By: Miché Fambro

Man of Straw

While the day's warm,
you kick away at your straw man

With the wind in your face,
you wish he would blow away

You fall to your knees
in the field of your brother

You and your silence,
you and your man of straw
Sleeping - you and your man of straw
You're sleeping - you and your man of straw

Brown startled eyes
awake from a chilling breeze

You walk toward the light -
the light from a house in the distance

And loving arms
reach out to hold you

You and your silence,
you and your man of straw
Weeping - you and your man of straw
Yes, you are weeping - you and your man of straw

They think you're crazy,
they think you're insane -
You and your man of straw

But there's love -
unconditional love
for you and your man of straw

You're living in a world
they don't understand
You and your man of straw

But there's unconditional love
for you and your man of straw.

Bus Ticket and an American Flag

Written By: Miché Fambro

A Bus Ticket and an American Flag

A bus ticket and an American flag
Before you get where you're going
you better check your nametag

A wet road to reflect on and miles of memories
A little colored boy is trying to build something
He's trying to get it right, just trying to get it right.

A bus ticket and an American flag
A young black man's trying to find himself,
got lost with skag

He used to want to be a jazz musician,
but all he wanted was the ladies
A groupie turned him on to Gil Scott Heron
and saved his soul

That music saved his soul.

Do you know where you're going,
do you know who you are?
People say you should reach for the sky
but they won't let you fly.

This bus is moving...forward.

A bus ticket and an American flag
An African-American man takes hits
from his own like a punching bag

He's a tom if he's educated,
he's a tom if he leaves the streets
Just watching time redefine what things mean
And what things used to be.

Do you know where you're going,
do you know who you are?
People say you should reach for the sky
but they won't let you fly.

Do you know where you're going,
do you know who you are?
All these people fighting for freedom
Is this what they died for?

Is this what they died for?
Is this what they died for?

For Always

Written By: Miche Fambro

Long, long ago, long before you were here,
I whispered a dream and watched it disappear.
Closing my eyes, my heart searched everywhere
And then I found it again when you answered my prayer.

Who could know that a dream would grow
To become a new life, to be you?

Sleep little one, dream your dreams,
the day is done.
My heart holds your smile until the morning comes.
The stars in your eyes, now aglow in the night skies,
Their voices I hear sending sweet lullabies.

Help me know, what you need to grow
Help me be who you need me to be.

And sleep....

Sleep little one, I am with you.
Sleep little one, all the night through.

And in your dreams, hear this promise I make to be here with you for always…

Sleep little one, and know that I love you.

The Troubadour Flies Again

Written By: Miche Fambro

Too many choices or too much wine
Poor guy can't make up his mind.
He's miserable and he knows why.
He can't run. He can't hide.

Time to move. Rub your chin.
No more thinking. Put down the pen.
The troubadour flies again.

A sticky tavern. A cup of mead.
A chorus of love and victories.
A warm bosom. A pretty face.
Charming words and Queen Anne's Lace.

Catch your breath. Wait for the sun.
If you weren't restless you could have time to love someone.
The troubadour flies again.

Heart of gravel that's trampled on,
will push away those kicking stones.
Sing with passion, build a crowd.
Make women cry and make men proud.

Should you stay? Another show.
Somebody loves you. It's time to go.
The troubadour flies again.

Mud on your shoes, wind in your face
Somebody's crying, pick up the pace
The troubadour flies again.

Time to move. Rub your chin.
No more thinking. Put down the pen.
The troubadour flies again.
