Michael Fracasso

Style: Acoustic country, folk
Began performing: Late 1980's
Stomping grounds: Austin, Texas

Originally part of the 80's New York folk scene, Fracasso moved to Austin and has become a favorite there. He writes songs in a sort of twang-folk vein; very intense, sometimes moody, sometimes wry. His voice has been compared to Gene Pitney and Roy Orbison. His material is like Roy Orbison squared.
