Album Notes
Michael was raised in South Florida and began playing guitar when he was seven. Michael’s father was a jazz aficionado and saturated Michael with the genius of artists such as Lester Young, Count Basie, Sonny Rollins, Coleman Hawkins, Joe Pass, Wes Montgomery, John Coltrane, Miles Davis, Sonny Stitt and, Michael’s mentors - Ira Sullivan and Joe Diorio.

Michael attended the University of Miami, majoring in Jazz Guitar. But then he heard the Blues! He found that in Blues music he could completely and freely express himself.

He moved to San Francisco in the early 90’s and fell under the tutelage of his now close friend and longtime bluesman, Johnny Nitro. Thanks to Johnny’s encouragement, Michael developed his own style and set off on his own to front an electric blues trio.

Michael has played his blistering yet soulful guitar from coast to coast. He has performed with or opened for the likes of BB King, The Fabulous Thunderbirds, W.C. Clark, CoCo Montoya, Sonny Rhodes, Walter Trout, Ben E. King, Del Shannon, Little Anthony, Jimmy Johnson, Otis Rush and Chuck Berry.

Michael now calls Southwest Ohio his home and continues to receive praise as one of the premier blues guitarists in the area.

The Lost Files is a studio compilation which includes Michael playing with Johnny Nitro, Tommy Castro, Tommy Dequattro, & many others.

"THE LOST FILES" Michael Locke
Jazz Blues Florida likes it! Good to hear some local heros that are still making the music for us on this CD, including AJ Kelly, John Yarling, and Stan Waldman.
