Michael Deacon is a writer, poet, and musician. He has been writing since childhood and his poem “Rain”, which the song “Looking for Rainbows” is based on, was written, and published when he was nine years old. Michael’s first instrument was the guitar, but in recent years has been inspired to pick up more instruments like the Native American flute, charango, and create music with the elements of ancient sounds. Inspired by nature, Michael imbues his music with the breath of the natural world. Like nature, Michael’s music shows many faces. He continues writing songs and exploring a variety of genres and styles. Within all the songs and sounds, however, is the love for music its ability to elevate one’s spirit and open the doors of the soul.
