Michael is a singer/songwriter from the Boston, MA area. He was born in 1959. Michael took some piano lessons when he was 11, by the time he had turned 12 he had picked up the guitar and never looked back. In 1981, Michael got accepted to Gordon College in Wenham, Ma. for music performance. His High School grades were not the best but he was accepted into the program based on an audition for the director of music. Unfortunately due to unforseen circumstances he did not complete the program. Michael wrote his first song when he was 20. He writes his songs usually on guitar but he also writes using his keyboard. He has recently been performing his music live at coffee houses and bars. He has a CD coming out shortly that will be avalible at the shows where he is performing.
He has performed his music at an open mike at The Vanillia Bean in Pomfret, CT and at The Steve Key Showcase at the West Side Cafe in Frederick, MD. He has also been performing at open mikes in and around New England; at Java Jo's in Jamacia Plain and Java Jo's in E. Milton, MA, Fish Hill Tavern in Beverly, MA, Gulu Gulu in Lynn, MA, The Harbor House in Gloucester, MA, In A Pig's Eye in Salem, MA and other venues. All great places to see live music. Come on out and experience some great live music. Independent musicians today are working harder than ever to entertain you. So check 'em out tonight.

Check out this article written about one of Michael's songs
Recession Depressin' Blues
Medill Reports Chicago
Here is what Alfred Nesser from Harmony Hill Musical Productions has to say about Michael,
"Michael is a strong organizer and the backbone of many venues. He works a regular job
and runs the open mike at Borders Books every 3rd Friday of each month. He also helps produce
a televised open mike over SATV the 3rd Monday of every month. A strong solo and lead guitarist,
his style and performance
are very down-to-earth Americana tradition, and he also does well as a background musician and accompanist.
He has a CD available, and our favorite selection is Recession and Depression Blues. He is a regular at the Topsfield Fair. (CD on file)"
Here is what Anna-Louise Jackson from Medill Reports - Chicago, had to say in a March 2008 interview.
"Michael Scott O’Donnell knows all about the recession blues. In the 1980s, the Boston area singer and songwriter penned the folk song, “Recession Depressin’ Blues” to capture some of the sentiment in the economy. The song tells of a notion that the grass is greener elsewhere, but O’Donnell said he learned otherwise."
