About Rocky Michaels
Rocky began playing piano at age 5. He crafted his skills into songwriting throughout high school. After college, he co-formed a rock band with friends and began playing gigs together. During this time … while they enjoyed a growing following … their style of music was labeled a bit “too derivative” by some record execs.
This turned out to be a pivotal experience. It eventually helped inspire Rocky to find his own sound and expression with his future songwriting skills. His bands’ first song ever to be played on the radio was “Burning Heart”, with both lyrics and music written by Rocky, himself.
Over the years, Rocky has been able to tap into his life experiences to offer honest lyrics in storytelling that audiences have found to be both engaging and relatable.

In country music, the Front Porch has long been a place of reflection. A place where you can look at the life you have inside that front door. A place where time almost seems to stand still, where you can get away. It’s also a place where you can go to observe the world as it passes by you. To think about your place out there beyond the driveway.
