Michael J. Dwyer

For more than 4 decades Michael has been playing guitar and singing the music that inspired him from the start. At an early age his influences varied from Bob Dylan to Bob Marley and everything in between.

As a singer-songwriter his style gravitates toward Americana-Roots acoustic. Michael’s lyrics are thoughtful, engaging and whimsical with a bit of sarcasm thrown into the mix for good measure. The late 1970’s and early  1980’s found Michael touring nationally and internationally in the Christian rock n roll band Heirborn. Throughout the latter part of the 1980’s Michael would align himself in various musical incarnations such as the Lehnen-Dwyer Band and The Paradise Highway Band.

As a solo artist Michael is known to have an easy, open, playful manner with his audience often times coaxing the crowd to join in to singing along with the more familiar tunes in his repertoire. Michael mixes it up with a generous portion of cover tunes by artists such as the Eagles, Crosby, Stills & Nash, Bob Dylan, Sting, Bruce Springsteen, Simon & Garfunkel, Linda Ronstadt, Joni Mitchell, The Beatles, Neil Young, Fleetwood Mac and many more artists that had an influence on our culture and our lives.
As a recording artist and record producer, Michael has a number of projects under his belt with national and international distribution.
Michael has recently moved to the San Diego, CA. area and is enjoying the benefits of living “in the city.” Michael’s music works well in the urban café, martini lounge, pub, wine room/winery/brewery and supper club environment. Michael's "style" is ultimately intimate and engaging.
