Michael Conner was born and raised in Fort Worth.  Mike has been playing the piano since he was 3 years old.  Playing by ear, he began composing and recording his music in high school.  From a reel to reel tape recorder to present day technology, he continues the craft in his home studio.  Although most of his songs are instrumentals, the few songs that include lyrics allow him to work with vocalists and other songwriters. Concerning the DFW area and the music scene, he is anxiously watching the development. “Knowing that the Arlington and Mansfield areas are expanding in the music industry is exciting. There’s so much here a musician can be involved in.” Mike is currently on the Board of Directors for the Fort Worth Songwriters’ Association.
