Michael Bishop's rich, eclectic musical background ensures he is equally at home writing a quiet nocturne for piano and strings as he is a full on, teeth shattering, volume eleven rock monsterpiece. After studying guitar and classical piano, he misspent his youth in a diverse spectrum of bands whose musical styles ranged from jazz, rock and hip hop, to Spaghetti Western themes. The latter, inspired by the music of Morricone, Hefti Barry and the Giallo composers sparked his passion for film music and a desire to compose. Check out Michael's rich beats!
