The Acoustic Collection
Those who have heard Michael Drive do acoustic solos in the middle of his band shows, or any of his “evenings of acoustic bliss” know what I’m talking about! Unplugged excellence and raw talent. 13 songs; this is a very intimate, up close and personal collection of songs representing the ‘musician’ in his pure form, with excellent production. Containing his talked about and highly requested version of U2’s “One”, the melodic but VERY quick-at-the-wrist “One Last Kiss”, as well as other new and moving songs to discover like; “The Right To Bleed”, and aggressive acoustic tracks, “Cheeseburger”, and “Just Blow.” In seeing the importance of this album, this one quote says it all: Sony Music Gold Producer and Recording Star Chi Coltrane says; "Usually in the case of a rock band, if you take away the band and just leave the singer with the guitar, it's not very impressive; but in Michael Drive's case, it's completely different. If you were to take away the band, you would see that he shines like a multi-faceted diamond. His voice is unique... his musicianship, and his songwriting are excellent." Grammy Award Winner Paul Buckmaster, says; “Michael Drive is a skilled and talented singer/songwriter, who crafts powerful and inspired songs… In his lyrics, Michael is Driven by a desire for truth, and his music reflects that.” Intimate, smooth, raw and aggressive; The Acoustic Collection.
