MichauX breaks the barriers between R&B, Soul, Funk, and Gospel. With the new album, Just MichauX, he brings infectious hard driving rhythms and silky smooth vocals to deliver a message of love, peace and hope for a better future. MichauX asks the same questions you hear from all of your favorite neo-soul artists and takes the next step by providing some answers.
MichauXs sound has been compared to Maxwell, Marvin Gaye, The Isley Brothers and Curtis Mayfield. Each song is a symphony of sounds and conveys a wide range of moods. The message, beat, and pace of the music has the ability to stimulate and motivate. Multi-talented; he produced, arranged, performed and recorded this record in his own professional project recording studio. He also wrote most of the thought provoking lyrics you hear on the album.
MichauXs music is not easily categorized. It is definitely soul music with a Gospel message I dont preach or push religion, MichauX says. I have convictions and values; messages about real life issues and survival come through in my songs. You can sing about love without being obscene or trashy. It is a beautiful thing between people who love each other unconditionally. Here in America we crave sex, money, power, and overindulge in everything that is self-gratifying. We need inspiration to help counteract all of this. This is what I try to provide through my music.
When asked where his inspiration comes from MichauX says, What motivates me is working with at risk youth. I want to bring them a positive message of hope that will help keep them in school, away from drugs and a life of crime. I am inspired by the youth that I have weekly meetings and monthly concerts with at Texas Youth Commission (TYC), Turman Halfway House in east Austin. Knowing their lives are being affected by the message in the music, is the highest achievement.
Yes, mostly Houston and Dallas.

We were looking for something new and edgy for 'Showtime at the Apollo. MichauXs voice and music is unique and different than anything we have heard before and we believe that the audience will really relate to his music and the message.
