Michael Overholser's love of music started at an early age, beginning with learning piano and then playing baritone in his elementary school band.
Michael then discovered his love for brass instruments, learning to play everything from the trumpet to the tuba before finding his calling with the slide trombone. In high school, Michael was a member of the marching, stage, and jazz bands and then expanded into R&B and rock as well. Michael played with bands after high school, living all over the country and taking his love of music everywhere.
