Biography

Grammy Nominee and award winning composer Michael Brant DeMaria is a multi-instrumentalist whose albums and live performances touch his audience and listeners with his sincere and heartfelt music. Michael’s music has both a magical quality of simplicity as well as an ancient sense of timelessness and eternity. After hitting #1 and remaining in the top 20 for 6 months, his last album Siyotanka went on to win the Native American Music Award in the Native Heart Category in October of 2009. It then went on to be nominated for a Grammy in 2009.

Michael has been the featured musician for world renowned poets Robert Bly and David White in addition to playing onstage with Grammy winning and nominated recording artists Mary Youngblood, Bill Miller, David Darling and R. Carlos Nakai. Michael performs on the Native American Flute, Piano, Synthesizers, Indian Shruti box, and a wide range of world percussion instruments including African Djembe and Middle Eastern Doumbek. He also was a member of Sacred Winds Consort who opened for David Lanz at the 2008 Zion Canyon Music Festival.

Michael’s love of music started early when only seven-years-old, Michael began using music for his own healing from surgery trauma. From the beginning Michael found true joy in improvising and creating his own music and he loved how creating sounds helped him feel more alive and at times even took him to another world. Seeing a jazz concert at age nine propelled Michael into drumming and percussion which he pursued with a vengeance.
