Michael's Story

Michael Elam, singer and keyboard player, first began piano lessons at age 8.  Michael’s extensive lifetime adventures have brought him to Maui, Hawaii where he currently resides.  Since moving to Maui in 2002, Michael has been involved in a variety of musical projects crossing musical spectrums including Rock, Jazz, Folk, and R&B/Soul. Currently Michael is playing with the eclectic Soul/Blues/Pop/Jazz/Rock/Zydeco ensemble, "Soul Kitchen".  In this musical project, Michael performs regularly at a variety of locations on Maui.
