We are very happy to have Michael Arthur Tremblay grace our stage at The Gen Bridge.

He was born in Manitouwadge, a small copper mining town in northern Ontario. After living in Toronto as a small boy, his family ended their nomadic travels and settled in Lagoon City on Lake Simcoe, Ontario. He attended elementary school in Brechin, and High School in Orillia before completing a four-year Bachelor’s degree.

After living in various places throughout Canada over many years he is happy to again call his native Southern Ontario home. There really is no place like home! Michael’s musical heritage is rich and deeply rooted.

His father sang professionally as did his uncle Larry ‘Dee’, who played with Tommy Hunter and is still revered as one of Canada’s best pedal steel guitar players. His talents have been put to good use.

Known as a talented vocalist, songwriter and guitar player, Michael also plays several other instruments including bass, drums, African djembe, bongos, piano and more.

After years of honing his musical talents he wrote and produced his debut CD entitled “Don’t Go Slow”, released on September 27, 2013 and features many of Canada’s best musicians.

Michael wrote the lyrics and music for the entire record and is joined by Barry Haggarty on guitar (Ronnie Hawkins), Don Reed on fiddle (Dwight Yoakam), Al Brisco on pedal steel guitar (Carroll Baker), Steve O’Connor on keyboard (Blue Rodeo), Andrew Affleck on bass and Ken Post on drums.

Michael shared with me that his original song, produced and written by him called  “Finally Home”was “used by The United Way across North America to promote their 211 help phone number”. How cool is that?
