Twin Cities-based singer/songwriter Michael Shynes grew up in a small town in Minnesota, and he brings that sensibility to his original music. Shynes pairs his lithe tenor voice with his piano to create wonderful, intimate stories.
In his brief tenure as a songwriter, Shynes has performed on some of the most recognizable stages in the Midwest (The Excel Energy Center, The Taste of Minnesota Mainstage, and Mississippi Music Fest to name a few). He has also shared the stage with countless national acts such as Eric Hutchinson, Tyler Hilton, Caleb Hawley, Kevin Daniel, and Soul Asylum.
