After meeting Richie Cannata, Billy Joel’s longtime saxophonist, Michael was invited to play with him at many concerts in New York City. The boy has been recording with Richie at his famous Long Island Studio, where Billy Joel and Ray Charles have recorded. After his epic performance alongside Billy Joel went viral, Pollack has been appearing on The Today Show, CNN, Sirius XM Radio, The Jeff Probst Show, etc. Articles about Michael have been written by such popular sources like Rolling Stone, Yahoo Music, The Huffington Post, and TMZ.
