Michael 'FISH' Herring
After several years of teaching guitar and working with several jazz, rock and funk bands in Philly, professional guitarist Michael Herring (p.k.a. 'FISH') began touring the world with artists from the unknown to the legendary, which eventually brought him to Los Angeles. There he sprouted new roots as a session musician while continuing to tour with respected artists such as Teena Marie, Dru Hill, Johnny Gill, Prince, Christina Aguilera, and a host of others. Along with touring, FISH was also fortunate enough to have several appearances on Saturday Night Live, The Today Show, MTV, The Grammy Awards, The American Music Awards and The Tonight Show, among many other televised performances. He has also appeared on records for artists such as Mariah Carey, Tupac, Nas, LeAnn Rimes, Siedah Garrett, Celine Dion and other superstars, as his discography continues to grow.Through it all FISH remained inspired and influenced by every experience, writing and recording music and songs that would be with him forever, eventually to share with the world. From his first 4-track recorder to his current state-of-the-art studio, Fish continues to develop his craft as a songwriter, composer and producer, leaving a trail of multi-platinum records and TV & Film soundtracks behind him.Currently residing in Los Angeles, FISH continues to write, produce and play for various artists and projects as well as, in 2016, becoming a bona fide member of the recording act "Magnolia Memoir" (see Magnolia Memoir's D&A Artist Bio page).
“The Starfish is more than just a guitar stand. It’s a fully functional work of art created with thoughtful design and precise engineering. Whether I'm on tour or in the studio, I can be confident that my guitars are resting safely and beautifully displayed. The Starfish is in a class all by itself!”
