Michael Debbage was born in the north east of England, raised in the Bahamas and later migrated to the United States in the early 80’s creating an exposure to multi cultural backgrounds. With it came a wanderlust for different musical adventures that includes multi subgenres of rock, Contemporary Christian, Smooth Jazz and Contemporary Instrumental music just to name a few. 

Michael has been married for over twenty years and also has two daughters thus he is significantly outnumbered in his household. His commitment to his marriage is equaled by the number of years he has served in the insurance business. However, by the turn of the millennium he was in search for a creative outlet. By this time the internet was in full stride and he tried his hand at reviewing the music that he was passionate about. With stints at, Northern Light and currently Hard Rock Haven, Michael continues to post reviews that focus on his passion for rock music. 

However, he also felt compelled to expand his review writing to match that of his musical tastes. Accidentally he crossed paths with Bill Binkelman back in 2002 and began reviewing Contemporary Instrumental music for Wind & Wire. With Bill’s sabbatical from reviewing, Michael migrated to Solo Piano Publications in 2005. Here, Kathy and Michael began to exchange musical opinions realizing that while they had much in common their passion for music came from two very different schools. While Kathy was raised in musical theory and a pianist in her own right, Michael’s only musical background was his ear, heart and words. 

With a desire to start her own website in early 2008 Kathy moved on and created Mainly Piano. The commonality that the reviewers previously shared continued via emails despite different websites but before you could say “David Lanz” Michael has now joined Kathy’s Mainly Piano website. Eight years later and still passionate about sharing his opinions and introducing others to new musical horizons, he has found a new home to post his Contemporary Instrumental reviews.
