Michael Hauswirth, who goes by Michael Hozz was raised in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan and became very interested in music at a young age. Oddly enough, hearing the different tones coming from the vacuum cleaner at age 4 coupled with other noises from the house along with watching his Grandfather George play several instruments, intrigued him. His Parents bought him his first guitar at age 9, best Christmas ever!
It was then the journey began.
Michael has played professionally since 1988 and has had the opportunity to play alongside or open for many national acts. He has a songbook that ranges from the 1950’s to the present. Not only does he perform cover songs he also has a deep vault of originals many of which have been released and many that are yet to be recorded and released to the public.
