At 25, Michael Shynes decided to honor his Dad’s legacy by chasing the musical dreams he had put off. Originally from Little Falls, Michael now resides in St. Cloud, playing at local venues, most notably The Pickled Loon, and has made appearances at Woodfired Wednesdays and Summertime by George.
Shynes has worked to become one of the most sought after performers and songwriters in the Midwest. His unique ability to blend shades of alternative and folk genres over an acoustic landscape creates songs that are ripe with lyrical depth. He has now performed from St. Cloud to California and has written music for a number of other individuals.
Michael’s recent claim to fame is his performance in Poland where he has achieved a following for some cover band work he did. He appeared on Poland’s equivalent to “The Today Show” and “MTV” after which he performed to 50,000 screaming fans. He is preparing for his return trip to appear on the Poland’s equivalent to “Dick Clark’s Rockin’ Eve” and playing for their New Year’s Eve Celebration.
