Michael Hanson

Guitar & Bass

Michael Hanson began his musical journey at the age of 12, when he got his first bass and began learning to play. Having his first stage experience at 13, and professional experience by 14, he fell in love quickly with music in all its forms. Around this time he began to learn guitar as well, and has been playing both ever since in both live, and studio environments for various bands and acts. In 2016 he began teaching, and was thrilled with the opportunity to inspire young musicians the way his teachers had inspired him. Michael has spent the past summer touring Western Canada with his band Redwhyn, promoting their self-titled album.
