Acoustic, Pop, Rock
Wednesday, March 3rd @ 5:00pm
3/3 @ 5:00PM
Perfect for: Events looking for Emerging Artists who play original music. House Concerts or Private Parties. Open to most Venues and Occasions. Gear: Provide a PA that can cover 300 people in a room or a small outdoor setting. Will bring all sound equipment needed. I will travel to an event outside the San Diego area depending on the details and what is required. Michael LeClerc is a Canadian singer/songwriter with a style reminiscent of Van Morrison, Dave Matthews or Jack Johnson. His sweet and soulful voice penetrates deeply, with a dream-like quality against an acoustic guitar that drifts between deftly executed finger-style to jangly strumming, and segues easily from love ballad to upbeat rocker. Currently located in Southern California, he is carving a niche for himself up and down the west coast, playing wineries, clubs and songwriter showcases from San Diego to Vancouver, Canada. Fiercely independent, Michael has been playing since the age of seven, and always knew that music was his calling. Growing up in the rural, blue-collar community of Chatham, Ontario fueled his wanderlust, but like many artists, there were several turns in the road before he made the decision to commit to music full time. Some of his early vocations included picking tobacco and working in a corn mill, eventually leading him to pursue a degree in Hospitality and Business Development. After a few years living in Ireland and working with several prestigious hotels, he moved to the Cayman Islands, where his band Smooth Bill had the opportunity to open for top Canadian band The Tragically Hip in front of several thousand people. He has since played to many large audience, including the Twilight Concert Series in Del Mar, CA, andis just as comfortable playing on a big stage as his is to an intimate listening room audience. In 2011, he released his first solo EP with producer Jim Wirt (Fiona Apple, Incubus, Hoobastank), titled Radio. Local terrestrial and internet radio began to pick up on the title track, leading to a three-month tour of California that soon segued into a permanent move. 2015 saw the release of a new self-titled EP, and he has been a featured performer in Renaissance Hotels’ RLife concert series, a program that in the past has hosted artists like Bruno Mars and Robin Thicke. Drawing comparisons to James Taylor, Jackson Brown and John Mayer, Michael’s instant appeal and warm stage presence invites the audience to come closer and listen to what he has to say.

Born and raised in Connecticut before settling in San Diego, California in 1998. Began teaching himself how to play guitar and writing music in the mid 90's to pass the time while traveling throughout the US as a Computer Programmer/Analyst - Consultant. After settling on the West Coast, started performing at local coffee houses and open mics a few times a month beginning in August, 2005. Now performing between 4 - 6 times a month all over San Diego county. His trademark is smooth vocals of fun original tunes, including popular covers from a variety of artists spanning over 6 decades. Let's just say a little surf / meets folk / meets rock / meets pop.

My name is Joe Cardillo & I am available for wedding ceremony, cocktail hour, corporate and private events specializing in acoustic music. I have years of experience playing over 2,000 shows of these types. I have an extensive setlist that I am happy to send to you, so you can customize your musical playlist for your event; including but not limited to Adult Alternative, Rock, Blues, Country, Pop, R&B, Top 40 and more. I also perform weekly in the SoCal region, and can be heard, or auditioned "live" at your request. I have a degree in Music Performance from College of the Holy Cross and have toured all around the country playing in almost every state. I've opened up for Sister Hazel, Everclear, Donavon Frankenreiter, Dispatch, Eric Martin (Mr. Big), Phil Solem (The Rembrandts) have multiple music endorsements, and have played countless corporate events including Kaiser Permanente, Intuit, HG Fenton, The San Diego Gulls, Reef, San Diego Charitable Foundation, etc. Depending on your need, I can play acoustic guitar and sing and/or I could create a one man band sound using a combination of live loops laying down the chords, using small percussion, and while adding bass lines. In addition, I can sing the melody while often times looping vocal harmonies or sax lines. I could also play some nice melodic sax solos every now and then as well! Fun to watch and listen to, but not overbearing. Easy to work with and take pride in what I do. Please feel free to call me anytime with any questions and I look forward to hearing from you! I started playing music 3rd grade & now play guitar, sing and play 12 other instruments. Music has always been a passion of mine and I am so grateful to have always been a full time self-employed musician! I love to create musical experiences with people and would be honored to play for you!
