Michael helped design and build Stable Studios in 2005 and came on as a Studio Manager in January 2008. To most, he is simply "Oz". He has been involved with music since the late 70's, with over 20 of those in the Pro Audio world of recording and live sound. He has always been fascinated with technology since he took apart his first guitar amp in 1980 to see what made it work.
Oz has had the honor of working with many artists over the years that have helped him find even more ways of achieving "that one special sound" only that particular artist can hear. Behind the live console and in the studio, he has helmed for a diverse group of acts, from Jazz to Punk, Gospel to Grindcore, Salsa to Country, Progressive to Pop. Locals, regionals and nationals include Dent, Cyndi Lauper, Shelby Kelley (Creepin' Charley), Lee Rocker, Tracy Bird, Seven Mary Three, Perfect Nothing and many, many more.
In addition to his duties here at Stable Studios, Oz is actively involved in his own band, The Remedy's. You can catch them burning up stages around central Indiana on many a weekend night.
