The Americana Community Music Association presents Jaime Michaels in concert on May 21 at 7 p.m. at the ACMA listening room in Fort Myers.
Local ACMA member Bill Veach will open the show.
A venue operator in California refers to Jaime Michaels as a “songwriters’ songwriter.” He came late to the craft having enjoyed a long career as a cover artist both as a soloist and, for a while, full tilt rock and roll band lead singer with The Truly Dangerous Swamp Band. Not being much of a radio fan, he chose his covers carefully…sometimes something recognizable like Dylan or the Beatles, sometimes just damned fine songs he happened to run across from lesser known writers like Canadian Murray MacLauchlan. He sang the hell out of all of them.
Something happened a few years back when he moved west, far from his east coast roots, to a new home in Santa Fe, N.M. Maybe it was just the change of scenery, something in the big western night sky…but the songs started coming. Finely crafted. Tuneful. Both spirited and spiritual…songs of kindness and true emotion.
Admission is $12 for members and $18 for non-members. The ACMA listening room is located at 2756 McGregor Blvd., Fort Myers.
