Album Notes
I'm a musician based in Front Royal, Virginia, USA. I've spent over a decade composing, recording, producing and releasing instrumental rock music. "Reinventing the Wheel" is my third album release, following my debut with "Realization" (2009) and follow up "Cyclone" (2010).

I've tried to take diverse influences from Rush to Mark Knopfler to Neil Young to Beck to Steve Hackett to Adrian Belew to Iron Maiden to everyone else and meld into something new.

Some reviews of my albums from www.reviewyou.com:

..."What Michael DeLaFleur does do well is write and compose music, play every instrument that needs to be played, and engineer and produce some of the finest sounding music in the world today. With talents like that, being able to sing suddenly doesn’t seem all that important after all."

"...a brilliant instrumental soundscape of relaxation, serenity, and tranquility....some of the finest sounding music in the world today."

"....the many different styles of music on Cyclone blend together to form one solid release that has enough variety in it to please anyone, no matter what style of music you most prefer."

My goal is to produce quality instrumental rock music, and share it with people who enjoy such things. On my CDs, I've carefully crafted guitar-based instrumentals that blend classic rock, progressive, new age, pop, metal and techno soundscapes into a pleasing whole. The result is extraordinary and joyful music that is simultaneously intense and relaxed.

I love the challenge of writing instrumentals, and the requirement to keep the listener constantly engaged with interesting performances, arrangements and musical textures that are both unique and familiar.

It is a great time to be a musician and recording artist. With a minimum of fuss and expense, one can write, arrange, record, master and publish music to a worldwide audience. The real challenge is to reach the people who want to hear it.

I'm active in other bands and projects. Check out my website at www.delafleurmusic.com, and other projects at www.lowwaterbridgeband.com and www.vinyltracksband.com.
