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 1-3 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. 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.

I'd love to hear about your project. Click the 'Contact' button above to get in touch.

    An awesome star, excellent to hire and can create a superb track very quickly. Very good at creating a track to how you envisioned it.

    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!

    Michael did a great job for us and I would recommend him to any producer who is looking for a singer. He did a great trance for us which is a bit out of his genre but he nailed it!

    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.

    Michael was amazing to work with. He gave the record a unique sound with his great talent. Definitely will make the track pop and give it a twist to stand out in front of a lot of other mainstream sounds. If you are looking for someone great skills and understanding I suggest Michael!!

    Michael gives everything he does 110%! He's one of the hardest working guys I know, both as a performer and songwriter. We've played shows and written bops together. He is someone you'd be sorry not to work with.
