About Michael D

Songwriting began in 1982 . Early influences were Cat Stevens. Leonard Cohen. Graig Lake. The Who. Michael Peters. Queen. Full throttle writing tunes till 1984.
All in all, 40 years later 200 songs , half I do not remember, I still get very excited when a new song baby is born. Have co written with Barbara Ann Mulliken, James Newhouse, JeanJacques Vergnault, Gerard Dube, Silvana Pesut, Tina Guttery. I have recorded mostly in Montreal. Had the honor to work with some of the best Montreal has to offer. Covid was a period where online performing became a weekly event for me and so was writing. When I do sing live it is usually at Cafe Mariposa in Montreal or online on their open microphone event held every Thursday. Look it up on Facebook.

I hope that the recordings inspire you to practice and discover all the treasures that all songs have .

At the present time I am still looking to add more covers to my list.

All cover recordings are practice sessions recorded for self learning. They are not licensed or recorded professionally. All original songs protected by copyright.

I claim no copyright of ownership on the covers but I do guarantee you that the guitar arrangements and the vocal interpretations are ideas I developed throughout the hundreds of " run through's". Imagine what you can do.

Thanks for your support. your messages, and your shares.
For now this is where you can hear the tunes

Forever

This is the guitar solo version of Forever. Forever was written by Michael Di Rienzo. Forever , the song is copywritten. Library of Congress. No part of the music or the video to be copied or sampled or used or sold or licenced without permission of Michael Di Rienzo. write to link

The recording was live. There exists a recording with a voice but the person who sang never signed the release. I am not allowed to stream it. The voice version is even more beautiful than this version which is quite beautiful and introspective.

A Kingdom of Flowers

Rita said to Angelo
"Confess. It's your dime. Your therapy."
Angelo took a deep breath and whispered. " I once fell...for a hummingbird. She sang with vibration of her wings. Always in key. "
Rita : " And..?"
Angelo : " Hummingbirds never stay put. They sip from many flowers."
Rita " And......?"
Angelo : " I wish I could be every flower in the world. "

Rita : " Sweet.
If I was the hummingbird I would be impressed."

Angelo : " If you were a hummingbird you'ld be sipping from 10 flowers per hour. I would see you next year."

Rita : " Not if you stop time ."

Angelo : " And how do I do that?"
Rita : " You will have to close your eyes and count to 10."

Angelo counted.
The room suddenly was filled with the aroma of baked pannetone, roasted pecans, espresso , chocolat and lemon zests as the balcony room opened.

Angelo opened his eyes.
It was the hummingbird.
He held a white lilac to her.
He suddenly fell asleep.

But the hummingbird did not go.
The flower remained in his hand while she sipped.

When Angelo woke the hummingbird was human.

She helped him sit up in the chair while Rita observed.

She said : " You have a very active imagination. Never lose that. Promise you won't ?"

I p r o m i s e.

And then.

Just like that she was a hummingbird again.

Noticing a field of daisies
she took off through the opened balcony door.

Rita : " She is right. You do have an active imagination. "

RITA : "Session is over.

If I can make a suggestion.
If you can convince the hummingbird that she does not need to be a hummingbird anymore , you might have a chance..."

Angelo : "For what?"

Rita : "Have her stay longer.
That 's all you can do.
Because a hummingbird will always remain a hummingbird.

They belong to no one man.

They serve the kingdom of flowers."

Amen

Well said Rita.

Does not change how I felt to see her go.

Nontheless a healthy path to turning the page. Along with prayer.

" It is when I am humbled that I beg for your peace Lord "


Amen
