About Michael Compton

Michael Compton

Michael Compton doesn’t want to be a brand, but he does want a band. Unable to gather with other musicians due to the pandemic, he decided to take his bedroom jams w/ recorded drums loops and evolve them into a part live, part virtual indie roots rock  “solo-band” by combining rhythmic guitars and dynamic vocals with recorded keyboards, bass, drums and electronic sounds. Compton worked with beloved NW producer and keyboardist Steve Fisk, indie bassist Yuuki Matthews (Shins, Crystal Skulls) and rock drummer Michael Musburger (Posies, Fastbacks) to create the audio foundation for his latest group of songs. Culling ideas from within and without, his songs are poetic explorations of our shared reality, from the personal to the universal. These songs will be released on his debut LP titled Wooden Spoon, which was produced by Steve Fisk and is due out this Spring. The record will be his 20th independent release for his label and features performances by Lori Goldston (cello) and Jacquie Dillon (vocals).
