Michigan native, singer/songwriter/guitarist Michael Robertson, has a knack for recognizing irony when exploring the nuances of unremarkable – yet universal – life experience. Robertson crafts songs that blend modern Americana with country and rock flavors and his vocals go down smooth, with a tinge of world-weariness that fits the lyrics.
