For more than two decades, Michael Shay has combined North American and international music styles, engrossing and surprising audiences at every turn. As a vocalist, songwriter, cellist, producer, multi-media and music-therapy collaborator, cultural ambassador, and pedagogue, Shay's projects never cease to broaden horizons and blur borders.

In 2022, Shay is back to performing as singer-songwriter, often accompanied by the innovative kora playing of Will Dudley who doubles on guitars.

STAY TUNED for the summer 2022 release of the new EP "First World Problem", featuring 5 new songs recorded in Austin, Texas with Will Dudley (kora), Ryan Hagler (bass), Doug Marcis (drums), and Alex Coke (alto flute).
