Michael Tomlinson

Michael Tomlinson was born and raised in Amarillo, TX. He then moved to Austin to be where the heart of Texas music is found. In the mid-'80s one of Tomlinson's songs found its way to be the number one song in a Seattle, WA, radio station's history. The song was "The Climb," and it was reason enough for Tomlinson to pull up roots and move to Seattle, where he made his home in 2001, 17 years later. Michael Tomlinson left the traditional music business in the early '90s at the height of his growing career. At the time he was headlining at many infamous venues, such as The Greek Amphitheater in L.A., The Paramount in Denver, and Wolftrap in Washington, D.C. He found his songs being played on NAC and AAA radio stations, but was concerned about corporate takeovers of radio and record companies. He tired of the 50-page contracts and endless meetings with attorneys. He simply decided to walk away and leave it all behind. Tomlinson pulled a rare and fairly clever move as he found a way to regain ownership of all his records. He then returned home to Seattle to start his own small record label, Desert Rain. Tomlinson began at that moment to rebuild his career in a way more in keeping with the gentle messages and open heart which is signature in his own music. In 1993, along with an intense focus on writing new material, Tomlinson began hosting weekend retreats called A Gathering of Friends. At the retreats he uses his music to bring people together in friendship, laughter, and goodwill. Twice a year Tomlinson and retreat members come from all over the U.S. and Europe to ride the ferry across Puget Sound to a small, rustic village on the Olympic Peninsula, to make new friends, laugh, and tell stories. In 2000, Tomlinson released his eighth album, Watching the Storm Roll In, which is also his second solo-acoustic recording on the Desert Rain label. In 2001, Tomlinson was due to release his first book, a collection of stories and memories from his life and music. ~ Larry Belanger, Rovi

Don't read this because it actually works. You will be kissed on the nearest Friday by the love of your life. Tomorrow will be the best day of your life. However, if you don't post this you will die in 2 days. Now you've started reading so don't stop. This is so scary put this on at least 5 songs in 143 minutes when done press f6 and your lovers name will appear in the screen in big letters. This is so scary because it actually works!
I saw Michael in the mid to late 80s at a lovely hotel in orlando, fl. He played outdoors in the evening, weather was perfect, crowd was small, it was so special. Beautiful voice and beautiful packaging.
I first met Michael in Ballard, A friend introduced us. his music is inspiring, uplifting and gives comfort. Michael is a consummate entertainer, he gets his Audience Friends involved and keeps them engaged through out the performance, he always has time to meet and greet his friends before and after the show. I have seen several of his performances . a benefit of living in the Seattle area. I look forward to the next gathering of friends so I can once again enjoy his friendship.

I don't remember how many times I played his music over and over while driving ALCAN Highway. Watching nature while listening to his music took my boredom away. Definitely a collectible

I've known MT since his Amarillo daze. He's definetly loyal to his friends.
M.T. has written many songs that touch my soul deeply. He's like a really close friend that I haven't met (YET?)
