Michael Hewett


Michael Hewett began his musical studies at age ten with clarinet and piano. Throughout his childhood, he awoke every day to the sounds of his father, Skip, playing Bach, Gershwin, Debussy, and Granados on the piano. His first exposure to rock music was listening to Jimi Hendrix, but it wasn't until he heard his sister's Van Halen records that he became inspired to play the guitar.

Michael Hewett began his musical studies at age ten with clarinet and piano.

His first exposure to rock music was listening to Jimi Hendrix, but it wasn't until he heard his sister's Van Halen records that he became inspired to play the guitar. With a $50 electric guitar from Sears, and an old radio receiver hooked up to a car stereo speaker, Michael eagerly learned all that Skip had to teach him.

Within a year he had a formal guitar teacher, and was learning the repertoires of the virtuosos of the day--Joe Satriani, Steve Vai, and Steve Morse. Michael graduated early from high school and entered Berklee College of Music on a scholarship as one of the school's youngest students. Upon graduating with a BA in Performance, he moved to New York City with his writing partner to start a band, and they played the rock circuit for a few years. It was on a fateful weekend in the Catskills that Michael heard the music of legendary guitarist Michael Hedges--he became inspired to start writing material for what would become his first self-produced CD.
