Also known MC, Macintosh and one of my partners in rhyme.
Michael is a singer-songwriter, a producer, multi-instrumentalist & an occasional actor. He is ridiculously talented. You can see him in David Brent's (Ricky Gervais) Life on the Road. He plays keys & guitar in Foregone Conclusion. He also plays Drums, Bass, Mandolin & Ukulele. I'm sure I've missed some out, but yeah, he plays all the instruments. He has supported Sheryl
Crow, Kings of Leon & John Mayer. He is also in the band The Sad Professors and he's delivering a workshop for The VIP Project, which is clearly his biggest achievement to date.
You can check out The Sad Professors' latest release 'Goodbye Leonard' which I love, right here:
I was lucky enough to be introduced to Michael through a friend, Dan Whitehouse. I had a song that I wanted produced to perfection and I knew Michael was the man. I played him the song and he really liked it and we got to work. It turned out better than I imagined and we have been working together ever since. We recently finished working on an EP with a great independent artist called Ian Markx, which is due for release next year.
Michael claims that he started playing the piano at 4 or 5 years old, but I'm convinced he started playing when he was in the womb. His skills never fail to amaze me. As a teen MIchael pursued a career as a solo artist and was signed to Telstar. After that Michael decided to focus on music production and is by far one of Birmingham's finest.
Michael's unrivalled talent, passion and ears that hear the next note before your brain has processed the previous one is a major asset to The VIP Project. His workshop will blow your mind and leave you feeling inspired, excited and valued. We are all in for a real treat. And just wait 'til you see him perform live!
Anyway, enough from me, here's a word from the man himself:
"Hi, I'm Michael Clarke & i'm delighted to say that I'll be delivering a workshop as part of The VIP Project and I'll be performing at the show on 10th May 2017. I'm really looking forward to meeting you."
Check back tomorrow to find out who our final artist is.
Thanks for reading and listening.
A VERY VERY VERY excited Nicki
