Michael Garfield is on a mission to move you. Not content to merely push the boundaries of acoustic guitar technique, Michael draws from a world of traditions past, present, and future to deliver music both totally original and strangely familiar. His unusual versatility – alternately wielding instrumental etudes, heart-spearing ballads, and hypnotic acoustic-electronic loopscapes – pulls audiences deeper into the paradox-blessing of human existence, often in the same breath. In any of its manifestations, Michael’s music celebrates the mystery of life and love, restoring our wonder at the vastness of it all.

With both a traditional songwriter project and an experimental acoustic-electronic act, Michael’s career has brought him onto bills with an eclectic array of artists, including Tim Reynolds (Dave Matthews Band), Zuvuya (with Michael Travis of The String Cheese Incident – who declared him “the perfect opening act”), Andreas Kapsalis Trio, Papadosio, Zach Deputy, Willy Porter, Lunar Fire, Random Rab, Sidecar Tommy of Beats Antique, Heyoka, Ana Sia, D.V.S*, Stuart Davis, Jonah Smith, Whitewater Ramble, Cecil “P’Nut” Daniels (The Funky Meters), Delta Nove, The Floozies, and Fresh2Death, jammed onstage with DJs Entheogenic, Bowie, & KatDog, and performed at the Wakarusa, Motion Notion (Canada), Geoparadise (Costa Rica), Dreamtime, and McDowell Mountain Music Festivals, Burning Man’s Entheon Village, the MAPS Conference on Psychedelic Science in the 21st Century, and a growing number of charitable events.

Michael is endorsed by LR Baggs Guitar Pickups.
