For the thousands of people who listen to Michael Tomlinson's music, there is no specific genre to assign him. Folk rock and jazzy pop overlap, and his ballads are all his own; hauntingly beautiful introspectives that Van Toffler, longtime President of MTV,VH1 & CMT, calls "completely without peer." About his album, The Way Out West, West Coast Music said, "This is the album I've been waiting 20 years for James Taylor to make." More recently, Michael released arguably his finest album yet, House of Sky.
Michael's concerts feature an elegant flow of songs and stories and humor; warm-hearted events that leave his listeners inspired and entertained, again and again. People new to his impressive catalog, and Michael's uncanny ability for bringing his stories to life, are pleasantly surprised by the depth of Michael's broad talents. Once exposed to Tomlinson's rich ballads, listeners usually become fans.
