Artist Bio

Influences:   Mortality, Jesse Lacey, Jeff Mangum, Jon Foreman, Colin Meloy, David Ford, John Darnielle, Paul Simon, Jim Croce, The Beatles, Errol, Erin

2018 is somehow my tenth year fawming in the state of Delaware!

I (Michael Natrin) perform music as The Honey Badgers (@honeybadgerfolk), a singer-songwriter/folk/Americana duo with my wife Erin (@erinkelsey3).

I'm also an electrical engineer in the power industry and enjoy homebrewing beer, mead, and cider and also working on our Sprinter campervan conversion.

Please let me know what you think of my songs. Mainly recording vocals on a Shure SM7b and acoustic guitar with a Blue Bluebird, both through a Focusrite Saffire Pro 40 and using Logic X [all when I have time/space]. It's often faster and easier to just use a trusty Zoom H4n.

  • @matthewhalley Jan 26

    Hey Michael!! We're using similar gear this year - I use a Shure SM7b for vocals, an ADK model A-51S large-diaphragm condenser for guitar, and both mics for percussion. My piano is a Korg SV-1, and Fender Squire P-bass, plugged in direct to Focusrite SaffirePro 40.

  • @emkeev  Jan 25

    actually there was a photo of me from when i was a lil chickie and when there used to be a diner, and also some posts about the Castle open mic and MAN... nostalgia.

  • @emkeev  Jan 24

    I need to tell you that one of the first recordings I ever heard of yours was you covering that little blurb, maybe from This American Life, where the guy goes "I used to work in Chicago.... at a convenience store..." and this continues to come up in my memory I'd say like 5-6 times a year. And I just went and poked through your blog and now I can't find it. But I can't forget it. I just thought you should know.

  • @gvgeis Jan 24


    First this year!! 😁

  • @ericdistad  Jan 23

    Great to see you back!
