Singing about topics that are important to him and to others in in this world, Michael touches on such important issues as the desecration of sacred sites, the Cherokee legends of his ancestors and today’s and yesterday’s “Invisible Indian,” a figure that has often gone unrecognized in history for contributions made and promises broken.
Michael’s coined term and artistic perspective of “Reactionary Music,” with strong and melodic vocals, heartfelt lyrics and blend of acoustic and electric guitar, native and intermittent contemporary drum, flutes, shakers, rattles and bass – succeeds in creating a new cutting edge musical sound that blazes a pathway as of yet uncreated through native folk, blues and rock music.
Michael’s music career, which officially began when his late grand-uncle told him to “get busy and do something to help Native people,” shortly before passing away, has its foundation set behind a lifetime of music – something that has always been in his family.
As a boy, Michael grew up in a diverse neighborhood of Chicago and even delivered newspapers in four different languages to his neighbors. He learned to make his own native drums taught by his respected grandmother and was taught to respect the drum as “the heartbeat of Mother Earth.”
After a lifetime of music and art – Michael decided to take his talent to the road, straight into the hearts of many appreciative fans. With passion, drive and a love for the welfare of all people on the earth to have happier and more artistic lives, it is no surprise Michael Bucher has been consistently taking home a multitude of awards and nominations since professionally entering the music scene in 2007.
He lives in Wisconsin with his wife Deb and a multitude of friendly animals in an amazingly crafted contemporary log home he built with his own hands.
