Welcome to my online store. I'm Michael Welch
In 1966 I quit school to become a professional musician. I began a journal of these stories in 1972, memories from the road, nightclubs & bars. You can read these stories in Notes of a Young Drummer 1966-1969. I bought my first multi-track analog tape recorder in 1973. My first 35mm film camera in 1983. In 1984 I was accepted into a master class at the Atlantic Center for the Arts to study with drummer/musician Elvin Jones. Photographer / filmmaker Robert Frank and poet / writer Allen Ginsberg were also master artist in this 3 week program. Since 1984 my work has included audio / still & moving media and text. I've released multiple projects on Vinyl 45's - 12" LP's, Cassettes, Video, Film, Dvd, CD and most recently a web produced podcast for the MichaelWelchPublications mobile iPhone / Android app. Many of my recorded works and projects can be reviewed and downloaded for free from my app.
