The Flood is a completely self-recorded and self-produced four song collection that encompasses the roots of delta-swamp blues, southern rock and a bit of pop undertones within the creative works of Michael Scott Bates. A beginning to a new era of music production for this one man band and a start to a full and complete album titled, "It Began With A Bang!" Coming Fall, 2018.
A special thanks to all of my family and friends who support me continuously through out my musical journey! Big thanks to Josh Hodges, Taylor McDowell, Suzie Chrysler and of course my beautiful wife Jazmine Bates for helping out on this album!
