Michael Grady and fibromyalgia awareness.

Michael Grady has recently become one of our featured artist’s on FMS Global News. We feature musicians that support fibromyalgia awareness and occasionally musicians that have overcome a disability to return to performing such as world class acoustic guitarist Billy McLaughlin and Tony Denardo of Detroits hard blues/rock band the Muggs.

“I am still feeling quite honored by how you’ve taken to my music, and especially Open Water, because It was such a strong image that I wrote that song from. Carolyn and I were at a John Gorka concert and he mentioned the frozen lakes in Minnesota, and BAM, this image from my childhood and early teens of frozen Lake Michigan hit me, and I knew it would be a song.

I grew up one quarter mile north of the Holland State Park “the mouth of Macatawa” And a good family friend actually did get swept off the pier one day, only to return in the spring. The whole song hit me in a split second, and I sat down to write it about a week later, after it had washed around in my brain for a bit.

Also, I want to thank you for making me the featured artist on your site.”

Watch Michael perform a solo version of his recent song, “Open Water” which he wrote about growing up on Lake Michigan.

This performance was part of the 2007 Summit County Songwriter’s Circle showcase.

About FMS Global News

Folllowing Rick Usher's death in December 2008, at his request in September of that year, I had agreed, as his principal contributor and an experienced journalist, to run the FMS Global News service due to his heavy commitments to music and raising research funds through this avenue. Following his sad and sudden death I hope to continue his work as he would have wished.
