Michael was born in 1977 in the southern empire of Atlanta, Georgia. Soon after, he began to make loud noises, so his loving parents put music instruments in front of him. It was a good plan. He grew up in that grand tradition of staying up late & singing real loud. Although he's since moved north, the humid south remains in heart and sinus cavities. Currently Michael lives in New York, where he is supervised by his daughter and two vigorous cats. Brooklyn, New York is a very exciting place to live. In addition to playing music & teaching, Michael enjoys turning the knobs & playing with the buttons some on several pieces of recording equipment. This is why he put a studio into his house. As well as performing solo, Michael has appeared in public with the likes of: Tony Trischka, Chris Thile, Rosanne Cash, Natalie MacMaster, and John Herald (of the Greenbrier Boys). Amen. Sometimes people write things about Michael: "a virtuoso" "a leading light of the New York bluegrass scene" "a dazzling guitarist and fearless singer at the heart of a burgeoning New York City bluegrass scene" -New York Times "Guitarist-singer Michael Daves, 29, was a wilder revelation. A Georgia boy relocated to Brooklyn, N.Y., he knows both bluegrass and rock. Daves owns a nasal, yipping voice that seems to have escaped from some crazed hillbilly past. With his hair flopping and his thick eyeglasses slipping, he looks like a mad uncle just let out of the attic. His guitar work was so intense and jolting, and his voice such a yelping cry from the heart, he seemed a punk-grass force of nature.
