Michael Graziano established his two-decade media career in Los Angeles, CA. Suddenly one day, he woke-up to discover the palm trees were gone, the smog had lifted and traffic moved freely! He was living in Raleigh, NC.

During those first 20 years, his resume included newspaper and book/audiobook publishing, ad agency tv/film account executive, author/film/music event booker, documentary producer, and a musician throughout, performing with many LA bands. In the book and audiobook world, he has worked with Walter Mosley, Richard Matheson, Robert Wise, André Fischer, Keely Smith, Steve Tyrell, Dee Dee Ramone, Willie Nelson, Ian Copeland, Joshua Redman, Steve Earle, Paul Winfield, Ray Manzarek, Robby Krieger, Dr. Judith Orloff, Paul Krassner, Judy Collins and Mariel Hemingway, to name a few.

Michael co-directed the author-interview television program “The Artist’s Craft” on Raleigh Television Network from 2007-2012 and currently is the host of the Common Thread radio show on Little Raleigh Radio, which now broadcasts from the Thread Audio studios:

An avid reader and book collector, he can often be found in his sprawling library, above the recording studio. Making music still remains his central focus and as a musician, woodwinds, Moog theremin and percussion are his primary passion.
