    Anderson Fair presents Michael Fracasso.

    It's a long way from the steel mills of Ohio to the wide-open plains of Texas, especially if you get there via New York City. But that's exactly the circuitous route taken by singer/songwriter Michael Fracasso and it has worked quite well for him.   For 12 years, Fracasso honed his craft by participating in open-mic nights and songwriter groups. His first stop was the Cornelia Street Café in Greenwich Village.  Fracasso dove right in, contributing tunes to various compilations. By 1990, things were shifting in the New York folk scene, so Fracasso felt a change was in order. Once again, he packed up and headed out to find his place in the world. Next stop: Austin, TX.

    With his high lonesome voice and urban sensibilities, Austin was a pretty good fit. Soon enough, Fracasso carved out a niche for himself and within a year was voted Best New Artist in the Music City Texas poll of local musicians.  Michael has recorded SIX ALBUMS - A POCKET FULL OF RAIN - RETROSPECTIVE - BACK TO OKLAHOMA - WORLD IN A DROP OF WATER - WHEN I LIVED IN THE WILD - LOVE AND TRUST. He has also TOURED NATIONALLY with PATTY GRIFFIN, LUCINDA WILLIAMS, and JAMES McMURTRY among others.

    Michael has just completed his SEVENTH ALBUM, RED DOG BLUES, with the help of producer DAVID HAMBURGER. His high lonesome tenor that has been compared to that of legendary singers and his songs have been recorded by many artists.
