Michael Collins, a veteran of the stage and studio, and having played countless shows in front of thousands of people, he has always found a way to evolve in the music scene. Collins' songs are known for their hooks and stories. He is a storyteller. The songs he writes deal with intense subjects packed with raw emotion all with an ease of motion set up by powerful grooves. Read the lyrics. Listen to the music.
