ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Biography for Michael Reich--- A spirited performer with a powerful voice and magnetic stage presence would be one way of summing up artist Michael Reich. For over 20 years, this singer/songwriter and guitarist has been captivating audiences with his memorable melodies and intelligent lyrics. Born in Johnstown, Pennsylvania on April 6, 1959, Michael grew up in the rural highlands and was attracted to music at an early age. Around age 13, he began practicing the guitar; he was composing music by the time he was eighteen. After graduating from Meyersdale High School in 1977, Michael attended business school. He also studied broadcasting and worked in radio before trying his hand as a professional musician. Michael has currently released three albums: Pushing Hard to the Shore (1989), Before I Let It Go (2000), and Who’s Minding The Store (2003). He is inspired by all that surrounds him and in turn produces music on a variety of subjects and emotional topics. Michael’s distinctive blend of pop, folk and rock ensures a unique sound, yet it is entirely possible to discern similarities between the artist and some of his influences most notably rock icons Bob Dylan and Neil Young. Since 1981, Michael has been a member of ASCAP and has received accolades from their awards panel. He has traveled extensively across the tri-city area performing with different bands. Noted for his abilities as a lyricist, Michael has been chosen to showcase at the Millennium Music Conference in Harrisburg, PA, for the last six years. His music receives airplay on radio and internet stations around the world. In 2003, his release Who’s Minding The Store was added to top ten lists for the year by Pennsylvania Musician Magazine. Michael has recently released his fourth album Writing On The Wall with multi-platinum producer Mark S. Berry (IME, David Bowie, Yes, Killjoys, Duran Duran). His latest album was recorded at Zolis Audio in Toronto, Canada and released by Attack/Universal Records with publishing by CherryLane (Elvis Presley, John Denver, Black Eyed Peas). In 2006 he performed for music industry representatives in New Orleans as part of the Cutting Edge Music Conference. 2007 & 2008 have advanced Mr. Reich’s career with his tracks appearing on charts all over the internet. More good news followed with his track “Turning on a Dime” being inserted into an independent movie entitled “In Love” produced/directed by Izidore K.Musallam. In 2009 “Turning on a Dime” again was singled out as the grand prize winning song in the Music Universe Song Writing Contest held by Uplaya.com sponsored by American Songwriter. He is currently preparing to hit the studio again with a batch of new material. As a powerful and memorable performer, it’s likely that Michael Reich will be serenading the masses for years to come.

Writing on the Wall has great lyrics and melodies!
Writing on the Wall has nine great original tracks plus a terrifc cover of Heart of Gold with Michael Reich's own style. Spin is a great new tune with super lyrics and chorus. All of the songs have an original rock beat with excellent guitar work by Michael and his style is upbeat and fresh. This CD grows on you with each listen!

Up, up and away
This album has the strange quality of a musically rousing sound interwoven with a powerful doomsday vocal that I found quite compelling. Plus excellent songwriting. I recommend you listen to it if, like me, you have trouble getting out of bed in the morning.

Great lyrics coupled with catchy music
Writings on the wall is a great release by Mike. Mikes lyrics are down to earth, true to life words that most normal people will be able to relate to. All ten tracks feature superb guitar playing and some great solo licks. The songs are very upbeat and "spin" is sure to help anyone through the day. Another example of great lyric writing is shown in the song "wireless" in which Mike explains the evolution of communication into the digital age. The music is a great blend of folk and rock and is sure to please everyone.
