Fear Knott: The Music & Message of a Rock ‘N’ Roll Chameleon
David Di Sabatino, the producer behind Fallen Angel: The Outlaw Larry Norman and Frisbee: The Life and Death of a Hippie Preacher, has officially began working on a documentary about Michael Knott. Knott and many people that have worked with Knott in various bands and projects have already been interviewed for the project. No other details, themes, or release dates have been announced, but this is currently an active project that most likely will happen before too long.

Untitled Solo Album
Michael Knott – Pennies for Stormie Lane
This is set to be Mike’s first piano based album. The original plan was that Mike would record piano and vocal for an album’s worth of material dedicated to his daughter, and that the production would be completed at Jeff Elbels’ studio with other musicians. After a long hiatus, work has commenced on this album and we will probably see it released soon-ish.

Recorded on the 2003 Spring Tour. Information below was originally pulled from an online tour journal and then updated recently by Drew Neely. This album was initially recorded at Drew’s studio, and then overdubs were done at a studio in Toronto, Canada. Michael at times has said that Losing Angel would not be released, but recently FB posts by some of the musicians that worked on it indicate that it will be released soon.

Michael Knott – Even Star
Even Star is an upcoming solo project by Michael Knott. One song from the project has been circulating as a demo. According to Down the Line magazine:”Even Star will hopefully come out sometime before Christmas.” Michael explains it, “This record is a trip, it’s not super heavy, it’s kind of light as far as the mix and the tones. There are some really cool songs on it.” This album was inspired by Liv Tyler’s character in the Lord of the Rings Trilogy, and as Michael relates, “It’s not like I’m really in to that kind of stuff, but I was in to her character, so I decided to do a whole record about it. It’s real interesting because it starts to change in to this spiritual thing as well, one where God is involved. It’s a whole different angle, but it’s a trippy record.”
