Michael Lusk has enjoyed an incredible career as vocalist, bass player and backup singer with country luminaries from Martina McBride to Jason Aldean to the Billy Graham Crusades. He was also a member of Christian Rock Group called Forerunner that starting in 1998 worked as a backup band for Loretta Lynn. Michael’s career and recent touring with Loretta are covered extensively in this article by Chuck Yarborough of The Plain Dealer: http://www.cleveland.com/entertainment/index.ssf/2016/04/twinsburgs_michael_lusk_comes.html.

Starburst Records has published the following two releases of Michael’s work:

In May, 2016 we published Michael Lusk “Contrasts” album. It was an honor and a privilege for Bobby & Leslie Sahlen and Starburst Records to collaborate with Michael Lusk, whose vocal performances on this album added an extra dimension to each song we can best describe as MAGIC! And, of course, the incredible production and musical talents of Martin Young were phenomenal, as were his back up musicians Scott Nuebert on Peddle steel and Dobro, Jason Roller on Fiddle and Dennis Wage on Keyboard.

More recently, in May of 2018, we were again honored to serve as publisher for the great Jill Chase/Tim Williams co-written song “That Moment When” performed by Michael. Jill & Tim, both from upstate New York custom wrote this song with the magical voice of Michael Lusk in mind. A truly compelling and passionate love song. In explaining the writers’ intentions, Jill said “We wanted to do something a little different…a simple love song to be enjoyed by all ages, Country and non-Country fans alike. Combining a little of that Ed Sheeran’s “Perfect” vibe along with a bluesy Tennessee Whiskey Lullaby feel.” This nifty little tune has already been receiving radio play in Jill and Tim’s area of New York.
