Statement from Michael Cleveland and Flamekeeper

Here is a statement from Michael Cleveland following yesterday’s unexpected news about the sudden departure of band members Marshall Wilborn, Jesse Brock and Tom Adams.

Life and business are often about change and Michael Cleveland & Flamekeeper are certainly no exception. Though the news of personnel changes within Michael’s band will come as a surprise to some, Michael is excited about the future and the direction he and Flamekeeper will be taking.

“I would like to thank Marshall, Tom and Jesse for the great music and fun we have shared together. I wish them well and hope they have great success in their future endeavors.

I am honored to have Charlie Cushman continue as a member of Flamekeeper and I’ll be making an announcement soon about our new band members.”
