“I’ve always been deeply invested in my craft because I wanted to perfect every element of music. I used to put CDs in my Sony Walkman and pull the headphones slightly out to hear the isolated background vocals and how many stacks, notes, and levels they were adding to complete the song,” adds Michael.
He cites the influences of Whitney Houston, Babyface, Diane Warren, Tony Thompson, LA Reid, Mr. Cheeks, Kashif, Adina Howard, who is his Godmother, Beyonce & Jay Z, in his music.
