Heart on My Sleeve
Since the beginning of music, there have been certain singer/songwriters with the unique ability to consistently hit you where it hurts while gently tugging at your heartstrings - the genuine singer/songwriters who selflessly bear their souls in their songs. Glenn Michael is one of these elite artists and he is introducing a new style of music with some good ol' fashioned substance behind it. For more than five years, Glenn Michael has served as the charismatic frontman for the Los Angeles-based rock band Deepdown. After countless high profile performances on the infamous Sunset Strip and across the greater Southwest, Glenn Michael is branching off on his own to express a more intimate side of the musician. This Glenn Michael is acoustic. He's melodic and soulful and completely inspired. He sings from his heart which he proudly wears on his sleeve and he makes memorable music that can make the hair stand up on your arm. He's powerful, he's polished and he tells it like it is. Make no mistake; Glenn Michael is a man who can move you with his music. But what makes Glenn Michael stand apart from the growing mass of striving singer/songwriters? It all boils down to his eclectic batch of influence. An avid enthusiast of virtually every kind of music, Glenn Michael's signature style reflects elements of every artist he has ever admired. His songs not only encompass the emotional dynamics of acts like the early Counting Crows, they also contain Richard Ashcroft's sense of melody and the acoustic alchemy of Jewel's debut album. Sometimes you can hear hints of Dylan or Jeff Buckley, and sometimes his songs have a similar vibe as Mojave 3, but the one element that remains constant through the root of his material is the pure passion that pours directly from his soul to his songs. And it is this explosion of real emotion that keeps the crowds coming back to his powerful performances. By blending his memorable melodies with easy to relate to lyrics about love and struggle, self-empowerment and addiction, Glenn Michael consistently captivates the crowd at every venue that he plays. To further his growing buzz, Glenn Michael has just finished recording his debut CD entitled Heart on my Sleeve and he has officially set his sights on bringing his new material to the masses. 2006 will see Glenn Michael performing in multiple markets across the United States, as well as worldwide, and his debut disc will soon be available in various online and retail stores.
