“Soulful, tasty and groovy. I dare you not to dance or be in a good mood during and after listening to this beautiful music” - Lionel Loueke
Songwriter/Producer/Multi-Instrumentalist Michael Thurber is a musical chameleon. Whether composing scores for The Royal Shakespeare Company, playing bass in The Late Show With Stephen Colbert house band, scoring commercials for Vanity Fair and BBC, or co-founding the hit YouTube channel CDZA (30 million views), Thurber has been guided by Duke Ellington’s principal: There are only two genres of music - good and bad. Make the good kind.
As a bassist, Michael has performed with James Taylor, Willie Nelson, Lianne La Havis, Cee Lo Green, Yo Yo Ma, The Zombies, Lin Manuel Miranda, Jon Batiste, Tessa Lark and many others.
As a producer, Thurber’s career began in 2012 when he co-founded CDZA, a YouTube channel with 30 Million views. CDZA was a headliner at the first ever YouTube Music Awards alongside Lady Gaga, Arcade Fire, Eminem and MIA.
