Howdy, my name is Martin Michiels, (Daddy Redneck). I was born in Heerlerheide (Limburg) and currently living in Venlo. After a long time of playing in a rock band, just about 25 to 30 years ago, I have put the microphone to rest. Because of country always has been a part of my life, I dusted off the microphone a little while ago and slowly began singing again which is just fine for me. I enjoy it to be on stage and it makes me happy when I see people enjoying my songs! I like to bring the old country songs such as: Union Mare - Waylon Jennings, Josh Turner - Long Black Train, but I also like the newer countrysongs provided they touch my heart. Recently I got my hands on a nice acoustic guitar, so now I'm busy practicing to play on stage too. With my new equipment it will be completed so I can independently do more performances on stage. In the mean time, I've been in the studio and there are already a few beautiful songs. I would like to expand it in the future up to a complete Cd sometime. My motto in music is; To sing my songs for people who love to listen and be touched by my music.
