Michael Dyer is a singer/songwriter who writes mellow rock, folk-rock and soft blues songs. Over the years he built up a portfolio of songs and in 2007 he produced 3 CDs: Nothing Seems Like What It Seems, Our Unwinding Time and Aboriginal Angel. In 2008, he has produced 2 additional CDs: Compli-intricated Life and Butterfly's Release. His songs tend to be about love and relationships and commonly contain dual lead guitar riffs, sophisticated finger-picking, haunting keyboards, well-defined bass/percussion and appealing vocals/harmonies.
Michael Dyer builds up each song by performing each instrument one at a time. He plays acoustic, steel and electric guitar (using flamenco-picado, finger-picking and bottleneck techniques), keyboards, bass guitar, harmonica and didgeridoo. He produces percussion via drum loops and/or by playing synthesized percussion via keyboard.
