Get To Know: Josh Michaels

Hey guys!

 I never really know how passionate about music, you, the house in the sand readers, really are.
So whenever I get to meet some of you, or get to speak to you online, it's so nice to see how much we all love music.

So far there have been so many wonderful people spreading the word about house in the sand, it's seriously heart warming!

Since I know there are a lot of you waiting for new music, I can't wait to share great music with you.

Today we have Josh Michaels introducing himself to the wonderful HITS audience.


Who are you?
I am Josh Michaels from New York. I am a singer/songwriter.

 How would you describe your music?
My music can best be described as pop/rock with a flare of an operatic style at times. I am trained in italian opera, my vibrato is pretty heavy. I try to incorporate all of that within my songs. 
Lyrically, I always write thinking of the audience first, trying to leave universal messages that anyone can link on to. I always write to inspire and lift people from whatever negative situation they are going through while listening to the track.

What does music mean to you?

Music to me reflects onto many variables. From the sound of the vocals or instrumentals depending on the tune, to diving into the meaning of the lyrics, music has the magic to move all of us through life. Ever since 4 years old when I realized the voice I was gifted with, I knew I had to share it with the world.
Your guilty pleasure song is?

Katy Perry - Firework ... Her lyrical meaning is spot on, when I hear it, it strengthens the power of my beliefs career wise ... I have been singing my whole life and working for my dreams forever. 
Many guys may say what the hell? Katy Perry, Firework? .. But I say I love it! It's inspirational.

What have you released so far?
Thus far I have 3 tracks released.
 "Above The Water", "Like The Rest", and "Awaken Now". My music can be found either on Soundcloud or Itunes. Currently all three tracks have been getting some great airplay as well as blog reviews, etc.

What is coming up? 
Currently I am working with various writers and producers on collaborations both here in the states as well as in the UK. 
My next song to be released is a co- write with Ali Ingle of Liverpool, titled "Passing By".
