  • ACCORDING TO THE NEW INTERNATIONAL VERSION OF THE BIBLE, PSALM 95:1 READS: “Come, let us sing for joy to the LORD; let us shout aloud to the Rock of our salvation.” AS PART OF OUR SPECIAL MUSICIAN SERIES, AND PART OF OUR SUNDAY CHRISTIAN SHOW, WE ARE PROUD TO WELCOME TO YOUR LIFE MATTERS MUSICIAN, SONGWRITER, PRODUCER AND SINGER MICHAEL STOVER. 

    Angelspeak is the creation of lead vocalist and songwriter, Michael Stover. Michael is a former member of Forever Endeavor (Christian Metal), Stormfront (rock) and 2nd to None (coverband). He is a Billboard Magazine Songwriters Contest winner (Cold-Blooded), and his songs have been recorded by Bryan Cole, Kevin Morgan, Deanna Dawn Denning, and Vonne Andring. With Angelspeak, Michael is dedicated to testifying through its melodic rock with a message. Angelspeak's debut cd will begin production late 2010. 

    Michael Stover began playing the drums at age 11 and writing songs at age 13.  After performing in a number of garage bands, Michael formed 2nd to None, a cover band that included Bryan Cole (now a Nashville recording artist) and Phil MacDowell (Buzz Poets.)  After playing the Pittsburgh rock scene for 2 years, Michael left the band and joined Christian rock band, Forever Endeavor.  

    Consisting of former Tempered Steel members, Jim Bernacki and Dan Lauritzen, as well as guitar virtuoso, Brady Novotny, Forever Endeavor rocked the Pittsburgh club scene for 2 years, toured the Northeast, and recorded a demo that garnered some label interest.  Unfortunately, creative differences put an end to the band. 

    Following the demise of Forever Endeavor, Michael formed Stormfront.  The band reunited him with Bryan Cole and Phil MacDowell, as well as another guitar shredder, Xander Demos, and another future Buzz Poet, Todd Demont.  Stormfront was born out of a CD project at the Art Institute of Pittsburgh, where Michael attended.  On the CD, Stormfront recorded, "Cold-Blooded," a song that won Michael 3rd Place in the 1990 Billboard Magazine Songwriters Contest.  After several months of playing the Pittsburgh rock scene, and several guitarist changes, Stormfront signed a management deal with Sam Parrish, daughter of Marvin Witofsky, renowned entertainment attorney for CBS records.  Unfortunately, the band could not survive the creative tensions building within the band.

    After Stormfront dissolved, Michael and Bryan worked together with Forever Endeavor guitarist Brady Novotny.  They produced a 3 song demo that made the rounds of the record companies.  After receiving some positive feedback on the demo, the group split.

    Michael continued his songwriting and in the late 90s, had 4 songs cut by country artist Kevin Morgan.  In the meantime, Michael continued to write and record solo material.  By the mid-2000s, he had almost given up on the music industry, when God called him to form his latest project, Angelspeak, in 2009. 

    With Angelspeak, Michael is back in top form.  This time, he is out front, singing melodic rock with a message.  Fans have been excited for the new music and have made Angelspeak one of the top Christian rock acts in Pittsburgh.  Currently working on their debut CD with a tentative release scheduled for 2010.
