Almighty American
Almighty American
Almighty American is the moniker of Minneapolis singer-songwriter, Michael Gay. He writes fundamentally simple songs with carefully crafted lyrics, paired with a classic sensibility and feel that will stick with you well after the fact. The songs themselves tend to consider topics like love, making mistakes, and learning how to be human. Other major influences include old books, cowboys, going fast and being free.

Growing up, Michael was enamored with the raw feeling and energy of 90’s and early 2000’s emo and pop punk. At the same time, his dad was educating him about the artists from his own upbringing, fostering in Michael an appreciation for the folk, country rock, and outlaw singers and songwriters from the 60’s and 70’s.

He cut his teeth as a drummer in various bands though middle school and high school, and eventually picked up a guitar. It all started about 8 years ago with a few simple folk songs, and he hasn't stopped since.

Recently, Michael decided to ask a few friends to help bring to life the full band sound he always imagined. He approached Andrew Schibilla (electric guitar), Joel Bowers (drums) and Beck Nebel (bass) to fill out the sound.

Almighty American is a personal outlet as much as it is a means to create something meant to impact the modern listener the same way music has impacted Michael in his own life. Almighty American is about adding something fresh to a long tradition of songwriting.

After nearly a decade of composing lyrics to Kenny G cassette tapes, Meg finally picked up a guitar and googled how to play. She's been stitching words to her very own melodies ever since. She still really loves Kenny G.
