Any Road You Take
You will never meet a guy more interested in and passionate about music than Michael Lubrant. Michael will talk to you for an hour about the beauty of a chord change during the second verse of some obscure song you've never heard of. He'll discuss the meaning of the lyrics of a song all night and into the break of day if you can stay awake. He'll stay until close and play an acoustic set on a borrowed guitar at any bar in town as long as you're buying (and probably even if you aren't). He would sit in with a band and play triangle if that was the only slot open. The guy just loves music. Michael was born in New Jersey. His fascination with music began at an early age with a Mickey Mouse record player and an inherited stack of old 45's. Later on, after several failed attempts, Michael managed to teach himself how to play guitar. At first he was satisfied playing the songs he heard on the radio but it wasn't long before he began to work out songs of his own. Michael began to play in cover bands and eventually formed an all original band, The Innocent, with his brother, Keith. The band proved to be a very popular draw and the brothers fueled the band with well written songs that pushed The Innocent to the forefront of the original music scene in New Jersey and Philadelphia. After the band split, Michael continued to perform, write and record on his own and with other bands. Injecting his live show with stories both humorous and poignant, Michael's songs are catchy, melodic and moving. Honing his songwriting skills, drawing on influences from as far back as that stack of 45's yet maintaining his own style, Michael has recently completed his first independent CD, 'Any Road You Take'.
