"Stylistically, he is difficult to pigeonhole because his sound amalgamates many different flavors, blending R&B, pop and blues into awesomely immediate melodies, evocative lyrics and contagious rhythms. Michael Shynes really has it going on." -The Huffington Post
"Shynes has worked to become one of the most sought after acoustic performers and songwriters in the Midwest. He has an ability to blend shades of multiple genres over an acoustic landscape, and his songs are ripe with lyrical depth rarely paired with mainstream appeal. "The thing that seems to separate Shynes is unquestionably his voice and phrasing. With a range and falsetto that is nothing short of captivating, his acoustic finger picking style acts as the perfect bed of warmth on which his soulful lyrics can rest."

Michael is not only a great vocalist, but also a great man! We recommend with a pure heart!
Michael delivered some very emotional and great sounding vocals!
Michael has a great presence and an ear on how to make vocals sound classic. He writes great songs too - a pleasure to work with as well from start to finish. You have to have that in artists, flow is everything.
A true pleasure to work with! Michael is as talented as they get. His vocals are effortless and make you feel like every word he sings is meant just for you. Fantastic weaver of words that can accomplish anything you throw at him. One stop shop. Highly recommended.
