Michael Diamond is a veteran musician who has been playing guitar since the late 1960’s. He has played both rhythm and lead guitar in many bands covering rock, blues, funk, reggae, and more. His early influences include Carlos Santana, Jimi Hendrix, and David Gilmour of Pink Floyd among others. He later expanded his musical palate to include synthesizers, which have become a major part in the lush soundscapes he creates. He is also an innovator in the use of the guitar-synthesizer and electronic effects.


His current recorded music is in the genres of ambient, new age, and electronica with elements of rock, jazz, and world music. In addition, he performs both solo and in bands around the San Francisco Bay area.
