Michael Lee Firkins
He first gained attention as the "next big thing" in instrumental rock with his impressive guitar skills. On his just released album "YEP" on the Magna Carta label, he puts his singer/songwriter skills on display, backed up by the legendary Chuck Leavell (Rolling Stones, John Mayer, Allman Brothers), and Matt Abts and Andy Hess of Govt. Mule. This album draws on rock, blues, country, and even some heavy metal vituosity.
