An undeniably gentle, tender and melodic approach to this style of Adult Contemporary music. There’s no doubt how well these tunes have been performed and put together. Every thought, emotion, feeling and sound is so beautifully expressed from Andy Michaels. His influences are of Cat Stevens and sounds like Peter Gabriel; Andy's newest single, "Just Because U Love Someone" is a song in the form of a reminder that one may love and the other may have mixed feelings. Andy's illustrates this picture in lyrical form to spread this message; someone may not want to be kissed or touched and these feelings are normal when in a relationship things get rocky.
Andy has played guitar since a car accident left him temporarily incapacitated before he was 20 years of age. His poems have been published by the International Library of Poetry, USA. Andy has not lost his passion for performing, with regular performances around Australia as well as in Asia, including China. His songs have received radio play in many countries including Australia, USA, England, Canada, South Africa, Switzerland and Netherlands, where his songs have been syndicated to multiple radio stations.
With his songs have been described as “True Adult Contemporary Music”, Andy has established a popular following over the years with his works compared with modern contemporary artists “The Script , Ed Sheeran, and “R.E.M”, as well as international Legends, Peter Gabriel and Cat Stevens. His voice is unique and gives passion and vitality to his songs, whilst his lyrics are not only intelligent and profound, but innocent and appealing.
In Australia, Andy has drawn crowds in the tens of thousands. He’s performed on TV, while backed by a twenty-piece orchestra, in front of over a million viewers. Michaels never planned a career in music. It was after a car accident that resulted in severe injuries and a subsequent long recovery that he learned guitar and put his poetry and musings into melody and song.
