Michael Emmanuel was born and raised in Two Rivers, WI. As a teen he played in a band which covered the rock tunes of the day. After spending some time at the University of Wisconsin- Steven's Point he decided to look west (or rather southwest) to Arizona. His first foray into composition happened in Phoenix, AZ in the mid-70's when he began writing light folk influenced ballads with spiritual themes.

As his musical tastes expanded he met the renowned piano teacher and coach John Suter and began a serious study of classical piano coming full circle from his childhood love. He also began to develop his voice in the operatic style and studied with Rico Serbo and famed Bass/Baritone Giorgio Tozzi. During this time he was a highly sought classical pianist, arranger, and vocalist and appeared as soloist with several symphonies. He was also a member of the Arizona Opera.

In 1996 he began developing material for a compilation of the received spiritual writings of John Suter. In addition to his musical talents, John was also a much loved and sought after channel in Chicago and Arizona. Over a period of some 40 years he amassed a collection of messages of love, beauty and understanding. In its original form the work was entitled the Biblical Meditations. Shortly after the release of the Biblical Meditations (retitled Eternal Ecstasies), Michael was called upon by friends and fans to release his original piano music that served as the background to the spoken word album.

He complied and released "Shaman's Hand: The Piano Meditations" featuring original compositions. Later he would release "Morning Sun" featuring his original vocal and guitar work including some of his earliest compositions such as the title track which was written in the 1970's. The album also featured an instrumental guitar piece, "Windhorse" showing off his ability to meld various genres into a singular musical voice. Michael's newest album is titled "Ode on a Grecian Urn". It includes music written for some of the great romantic poetry of all time. Keats, Yeats, Burroughs, Thoreau, Wordsworth and Tennyson.

Music for Blake's Songs of Innocence and Experience can be heard on Michael website at michaelemmanuel.com. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
