Introducing Michael Burman

Michael Burman was born in New Jersey, but moved to South Florida as a baby with his family where he grew up. He always had a love of music, however he didn’t pick up the guitar until college. Once picking up the guitar, Michael became obsessed with the instrument, progressing very quickly, and playing in multiple rock bands in the Miami area. He graduated from the University of Miami with degrees in Biology/Chemistry as well as a second minor in Music Business, which he added midway when he realized that he wanted to work in music.
 
After graduating, he began recording his own rock music as a solo artist. It is at this point he met super producer Jim Jonsin, who inspired him to pursue a career in songwriting and music production for artists in all genres. Michael began working in recording sessions alongside Jim, who signed him to a publishing deal. Michael would write and produce in sessions for a variety of artists. Being heavily influenced by rock guitar, he would incorporate a lot of guitar elements into his productions.
Michael relocated to LA in 2018, where he continues to write and produce, as well as work on music for tv and film.
Michael has worked with a diverse group of top selling musical artists across all genres from A$AP Rocky to Carrie Underwood. He is known for breaking boundaries with his unique guitar driven sound.
