I'm a writer, photographer and multimedia producer based in Portland, Oregon. I write about a variety of genres for publications like American Songwriter, Blurt and The Bluegrass Situation. My photographs have been seen in a number of publications, including Relix and Blues Revue. My Americana radio show, Michael Verity's American Music, is heard on public radio stations throughout the country. I live with my wife, camera, two cats, three kids, four dogs and several thousand albums that never seem to fall into alphabetical order.
