Michael Braunfeld is, first and foremost, a storyteller. His songs capture the everyday triumphs and struggles of ordinary people. His characters – though trapped in the particular circumstances of their own lives – appeal to a universal audience. In 2014, Michael was welcomed into the Writers' Night Family at The Bluebird Cafe. He has been garnering critical acclaim and industry recognition for his songwriting and intense performances … as showcased on his unadorned and stirring live album, Full Circle, which was released in the spring of 2015. From sold out listening rooms to folk festivals up and down the East Coast, Michael has been delighting old fans and winning over new audiences at every stop.
Whether addressing topical issues or sharing personal stories that often leave his audiences feeling that he has somehow, in some way, invaded their privacy, Michael’s performances combine a powerful guitar style with a seemingly endless supply of urgency. And he has a pretty sneaky sense of humor too.
