Michael Javalet, yes, that’s Punkin, started at an early age playing music for mom and dad and anyone else who would listen. He attended and graduated from The Musician’s Institute, MIT, in Los Angeles and toured as both a solo artist and a front man performing original music. He worked as a studio musician and had the opportunity to play with many great artists before he left LA. His move to the great Northwest years ago, for the lifestyle that everyone who lives here “already” knows about, turned out to be exactly where he needed to be.
As a song writer he embraces all styles of music, from jazz to rock, which allows his music to be influenced by those who came before him. He brings great passion to both his original music and his selection of “cover” tunes…from songs years ago that we all still hear and sing to some of the great songwriters and solo artists of today. And yes, he is still fondly called “Punkin” and has been for many years.
