London, Ontario, Canada guitarist Michael Trudgen has been playing the guitar for twenty-five years. Just take a moment to let that sink in. Twenty-five years. That’s a quarter of a century. He had some classes in classical guitar as well as six years of piano lessons so needless to say he’s got his stuff down.
Michael made his way onto the London music scene in 2015 participating in The Whisky House Battle of the Bands; and of 16 entrants, he placed 2nd over all. Quite a feat for a solo instrumentalist, with no vocals! The following December 2016, Michael had received an Emerging Artist Endorsement from Stonebridge Guitars, and has two video's available to view on his Facebook page and Youtube showcasing his Stonebridge G25 AR-C guitar.
With his new Stonebridge guitar, Michael has a full album recorded and available for sale on his web site, and it is available to listen on Spotify and iTunes. His album was recently reviewed by Divide and Conquer Magazine, and received a 4/5 rating, and a write up detailing his work.
Outside of his solo performances, Michael performs with local Alt Rock band With A Fox, which had won April 2017's 98.1 Free FM's Made In London competition. They were awarded $6000 for recording, and by end of 2017 or early 2018, will have their first full length album available. You can find With A Fox's first 5 song EP on Spotify and iTunes. Music is Michael's passion and everything he has accomplished shows!
