Michael Allen Gould-Vocals
Gould is the voice of Spyderbone and co-founder of the band with Jon Fixmer. There are varying accounts of Gould's youthful exploits but nothing can be proven. It is known that he ran off to the circus at the age of 16 with aspirations of joining the singing trapeze artists. Gould quickly rose through the ranks and was headed for stardom when one night he was kidnapped by a gang of wandering musical gypsies. One gypsy, Jon Fixmer, filled his head with visions of rocking and rolling. Soon the two wandering souls were playing all over Chicagoland to favorable crowds and receiving glorious reviews. Gould's singing has many different elements that combine old school influences such as Morrison, Plant and Daltrey, with the contemporary vocal styles of Staley, Cornell and Anselmo. Gould channels all these elements into an original sound of his own.
