About the Author

Influenced by early eighties post punk music, Michael D'Orazio emerged from the late eighties goth/punk industrial club scene only to find himself lost with a guitar in his hand, and didn't how to play it. He started singing in class in high school in the mid eighties, and found himself in a band called "Feedback", from there he landed in a goth/punk band called "The Burning". This was a very exciting time in his life, and it is no wonder he found himself wondering what to do when it was all over. He went to art school to learn how to create kick ass illustrations, and between classes he practiced his guitar. It was a rocky road leaving friends behind only to find social disasters awaiting him. Stuck in suburbia, in pennsylvania during 2000-2008, all he did was attend local open mics creating music he felt would be comparable to what he experienced in his early years, which is gloom and doom. "There is nothing sure in this world" so says Billie Idol, and Michael agrees that too much too soon can ruin ones personality to such an extent that it may interupt the natural development of ones personality. He was spoiled with dark, and interesting music, and now that he is stuck in suburban hell, his ego won't allow himself to support some of the acts around him, cause he wen't through so much in the past. He should have been coddled like every other american child, and follow the sheep herd aspect of american society. but oh well he is spoiled what can he say. MichaelDOraziosGallery.com
