VividLife Radio's Ed and Deb Shapiro welcome writer poet and musician Michael Roth to discuss his latest book Giving Up the Ghost!

Michael Roth is a writer, poet, musician, father, and long lost beatnik, whose writing centers around religious philosophy and history. Fascinated by these themes, he weaves tales of prophecy, history and thrilling fiction together, as seen in his latest book, Giving Up The Ghost. When not writing traditional books, he writes poetry – an eclectic mix of beatnik sound meeting modern day topics – with a focus on the quandaries, lessons and hypocrisies between life, society and understanding. He describes writing songs as a visual process: mixing space and trains and rattlesnakes while creating words and transitions. He grew up in Denver, CO. and founded his first band at age 6, when he was inspired by the Beatles albums he found in his parents' living room. Devastated that the Beatles were no longer together, Michael channeled his disappointment into creating his own sound and developed his shoe-gazing musical style. michaelrothwriter.com
