Michael Fracasso
Singer-Songwriter | Austin TX

I grew up in the steel-mill town of Mingo Junction, Ohio. My parents were Italian Immigrants. I learned about music through listening to a.m. radio and going to the Country Music Jamboree in Wheeling, W.Va. The first concert I saw was Kitty Wells, I never knew what a "honky-tonk angel" was but I loved her voice.

I worked summers in the steel mill and went away to college. I got a degree in Environmental Science but I knew I always wanted to be a musician so I left the forests behind me and moved to New York City.

It was during this time that I published my first song, "Big Sister" that went to #11 on the Canadian charts and I was recorded for the first time for a compilation record, The Cornelia Street Songwriters Exchange.

In 1990 I moved to Austin, Texas and was able to record my first album, Love & Trust (DejaDisc 1993) and organize my first national tour. Saint Monday marks the completion of my seventh album, two produced by Charlie Sexton. We also collaborated on the music for the movie, Monster Hunter. I have toured with Patty Griffin and opened shows for Lucinda Williams and Richard Thompson to name a few and am a member of the Woody Guthrie Ribbons of Highway ensemble.
