Hey music lovers! My name is Michael Haywood. I am a Nashville guitarist, bassist, and singer/songwriter, originally from Charlotte, NC. My instrument and live performance at 8 years old was playing the drums, but I fell in love with the guitar by age 11. Little did I know where my instrument and love of music would take me.

Now at the age of 27, I have been blessed to play most of the eastern United States. I have played some memorable venues such as Kenan Memorial Stadium, Bank of America Stadium, The DuPont Circle Hotel, The Windjammer, The Evening Muse, and Union Station. I have been apart of multiple original bands including Matt Minchew and the Highbinders and The Mood Kings. I have played many weddings, bars, private events, and recording sessions with a number of talented and amazing performers and artists. 

As I near the end of my twenties, I have a goal of creating more music and songwriting with others. My move to Nashville, TN has gotten me to play with some amazing musicians in some famous venues like Tootsies and other famous Nashville staples. This platform is a great place to keep up with my never-ending journey that has just begun.......
