Michael Nichols has been a singer-songwriter and working musician for thirty years. He currently lives in the Tampa Bay area of Florida. Growing up singing in a church choir and in the school chorus was the beginning of his life in music. He tried several other instruments before putting his hands on a guitar, but didn't really get into the drums, piano, violin, or saxophone. He started gigging for money when he was fourteen years old and has played music in just about every situation possible. He is still playing almost three hundred gigs a year and staying busy in his community. As a Paul Harris Fellow involved with Rotary International, he has donated money and time into charitable activities over the years.
