On Stage: Michael Bernier

Michael BernierMichael Bernier is hands down one of Boston’s hottest acoustic singer-songwriters. Time and time again Michael has created songs that capture the ears and minds of his listeners. This is why it comes as no surprise to his loyal, and rapidly growing, fan base that he is making such an impact in the music scene both locally and nationally.

Together, Michael Bernier and his backing band The Uprising have headlined Boston’s greatest musical venues. Sellout shows at the Middle East Downstairs, the Hard Rock Café, Bill’s Bar and several other Boston hot spots have put them on every true music lover’s radar. So, when we heard that Michael Bernier & The Uprising had linked up with Live Nation and would be headlining the Paradise Rock Club this August 29th, we were not shocked in the least bit. (Summer 2008 quote).

Michael Bernier has performed across the country and across the world in places from Massachusetts to California to Maui to Moloka’i to St. Croix to Dominica to Costa Rica to Germany and on and on. His songs have been heard on several radio stations and he has recently been selected as a River 92.5 Homegrown Artist. He has been featured in numerous magazines, newspapers, and internet blogs.

So, we ask, how has he come so far?

Michael says, “Hard work, dedication, love, excitement and time have brought me and the boys to this point. Mix that all up with the high powered positive musical energy that we create at our shows…throw in a little bit of inspiration from my vagabond lifestyle…add the amazing musical talents of the people in the band….toss in some of life’s daily struggles…and then add a heaping scoop of support from all of our fans and friends...and there you have it.”

“As of the recent years, we have been focused on taking advantage of all of the technological avenues that exist to expand our reach and our fan base. Internet tools like MySpace, Facebook, and Twitter have been of great help for us. But, as we have all seen, the cell phone world is taking on countless types of innovative services and functions and it is now clear that it will be a large part of the wave of future marketing and advertisement. That is why we have teamed up with Adva Mobile… now we find our band on the cutting edge of mobile marketing…we are bringing our music directly to the hands of so many people…the fact that it is so convenient for people to join our fan base, download our music, and buy tickets…literally with a couple motions of the fingertips….is super sweet,” exclaims Michael.
