Hailing from Northeast Texas; a ten plus year veteran of the music scene, Michael O’Neal is known for his heart felt and emotion driven writing. Stories of life, laid over rock, and folk with a touch of blues. With influences like Guy Clark and John Prine, Michael O’Neal has created a style of his own music that elevates him to a future legend in our books. And when one goes looking to write a description, sometimes it’s best to let another talented songwriter (a genius in his own right) say it; so from the words of Texas songwriter as published in Lonestar Music Magazine by Mike Ethan Messick:
“A Northeast Texas troubadour who has been semi-quietly building up his catalog over the past decade and change, Michael O’Neal has been true to his voice since 2006’s Soul Shine and unmoved by a need to fit in to the love song/party song/rinse-lather-repeat expectations of his ladder-climbing brethren. He brings a pretty distinct point-of-view to the table: masculine without being too stoic to write a song about it, driven by detail and character sketches, empathetic and specific in his tales of resilient and troubled folks making do in hardscrabble circumstances. His pet subjects — machinery, veterans, friends and family so vividly drawn they must be real — might bring to mind the work of Fred Eaglesmith, Guy Clark, or Chris Knight, but listening to O’Neal’s work is much less a game of spot-the-influence than it is an often-poignant, sometimes-chilling walk around inside a storyteller’s mind.”
