Michael on SoundBetter

I am an Pop/R&B artist in Nashville, TN. But I am versatile in my writing and singing styles. I work with all different types of writers and artists. I'm looking to further these opportunities and connections through Soundbetter with people like you!

Specialty: Vocals/Writing

I put passion and emotion behind everything I sing. I grew up listening to Rock and Soul music. My vocal influences come from Robert Plant, Sam Cooke, Otis Redding, Janis Joplin, etc. I also love Sam Smith, Gallant, Elijah Blake, NAO, Ryan Tedder, Bruno Mars, Jasmine Sullivan. I utilize emotion and rawness in my vocals and songwriting but I keep everything pop sensible and commercially viable. You will always receive professional grade recordings from me!

My average turn around is 1-5 days. I am pretty fast, but depending on the project it may take longer.

I look forward to collaborating with you on your next project and making your vision come to life :)

*If you release the song commercially, due to management, I cannot be featured on the track BUT I would like to be credited as the singer. You will have all rights to do as you please with the master (unless we discuss otherwise), but my name cannot be tagged onto the track. For example, Song Name Ft. My Name.

Send me an email through 'Contact' button above and I'll get back to you asap.

    Micheal is awesomely talented. Our track had many parts that moved around in phrasing and feel. He nailed it all the way through. Couldn't be happier. And, he's the a coolest guy—easy to work with, works fast, friendly. Couldn't recommend him enough.

    Michael comes as advertised! Talent, Range and really nice phrasing and feel. I can be very particular and Michael was easy to work with and met every request I had, his vocals added a whole new dimension to my project. If you heard his voice and you want it....go get it!
    He delivered for me and I would recommend him for your next project.

    Michael is an All-Star. A real pleasure to work with, I've hired at least 20 singers on SoundBetter and he was the most hassle free and seamless. No revisions or additional instructions needed. Thanks again Michael! Will let you know if I have any more for you in the future.

    Michael absolutely killed the track I worked on him with. With my instrumentals I like to give the singer free reign over the vocals, and Michael went above and beyond to make the song sound amazing. He is very easy to work with in that he is timely, responsive, and open to your ideas and suggestions. Do yourself a favor and work with Michael if you are looking a songwriter/vocalist!

    Couldn't have asked for more! This is the third song Michael have helped me with and I must say that the favorite thing about him, except his voice and lyrics, is that he is very hard working with the background vocals and harmonies...he completely understand where variation is important. Looking forward to work with him again!

    Michael handled a song for me that was challenging in a few ways - it didn't have a fixed tempo, it was longer than usual (just over 6 minutes), and the lyrics were written from three different perspectives. His voice was just what I needed, and now I'll be able to get the song sounding as I envision it. Easy to work with!

    Working with someone remotely without being present in the studio together it's really critical that he understands the vision and knows what needs to be done with little said to get things done in a timely manner. Michael is that singer/songwriter! He has an amazing voice and talent and he went above and beyond to deliver a perfect final product.
