Michael Semrad has been working in the industry of entertainment for nearly 30 plus years. As a childhood entertainer, his career started while performing alongside his father and uncles at State and County fairs. He has continued to grow as a singer/songwriter, producer, talent agent, philanthropist, and advocate for fair publishing rights.
Being a musician and artist in Lincoln, Nebraska has been life changing for Semrad. He and his wife Kerry head The Bottle Tops, one of the Midwest’s premiere honky tonk groups. Upon moving back to Nebraska from Chicago, Semrad quickly realized how a communal and thriving arts scene was the answer. Nebraska became a fertile ground to plant ideas, become activists, and watch an already thriving arts scene grow to offer so much more. Semrad started a record label called Sower Records, in which they just released their 26th album on vinyl. In 2017, he helped organize a famed concert, ‘Harvest the Hope, to stop the Keystone XL pipeline, bringing Willie Nelson, Lukas Nelson, Neil Young and tribal leaders together in Nebraska. Michael Semrad continues to organize groups of creative minds to make positive change all across the nation.
