Michael J. Vitale’s musical history has roots in the mid 90s punk scene of the tri-state area. From there he went on to study Jazz at Temple University and performed in a Jazz trio around Philadelphia for a while. Upon relocating to the West coast he found himself joining up with some old friends to form a Progressive Rock band and performed in the Seattle area for a couple of years. Feeling homesick Mike relocated to Philadelphia and began recording and performing Folk songs under his name, Michael J. Vitale. When not performing solo, Mike is joined by his friends Jason Goslin (drums) and Ben Carter (bass) to form the Michael J. Vitale Band.
