Michael Lloyd, originally from Sydney Mines, Nova Scotia, has been embarking on his musical career since the age of 10. After getting his first guitar for Christmas in 2005 and working effortlessly at playing, it was inevitable that Michael would choose a career path that followed his love and passion for music.Although some of his biggest influences are from the rock genre (Richie Sambora, Neal Schon and Steve Lukather), Michael’s background and passion was primarily in the country genre.
