About

I'm Michael Trenhaile, songwriter hailing from Omaha Nebraska, member of The Doneofits. Reflected on this page are home and studio recordings of my own music for the last ten years, songs that survived extreme life changes and 30 something year old trials and tribulations, short bouts of extreme alcoholism plus living in both inner city and middle class shit holes in both Denver, Colorado and Omaha, Nebraska. I'm big into lyrics and words so feel free to also check out my Scrawls tab (my poetry and 'rant' blog) just below. Enjoy tunes and check out The Doneofits on Soundcloud.

Michael Trenhaile   Omaha, Nebraska, United States

    @slowburned: Thank you so much. I kind of fell in to this particular song on my Roland 8 track back in 2005. It was one of those where I had no real idea what it was until it was finished. : )

    @Death Be Kind: thank you! the organ pipe sounds come from a cheap organ left in the hallway of a practice area I worked out of about 7 years ago. After it sat there for a week, I stole it. : )

    @jh0st: I've recently started a series of no-nonsense poems (bukowskiesque in other words) about people and places I've seen over the years since picking up the guitar. Tom the Canadian, posted on my blog and facebook page is the beginning of that. : )
