Midnight Mp3 – August 31, 2011

Who: Michael Johns

Song: Heart On My Sleeve

Written By – Randall

What He Sounds Like:  Vintage jazzy pop/R&B with a velvety soulful voice that leaks tender strength out of every single held note.  Sweet enough to make girls sigh and strong enough to make men want to as well.

Why You’ll Love Him:  Alright now, hold your darn horses and pull back your pitchforks here, I know what you’re thinking, “That dude was on American Idol!  That’s not underrated, under appreciated, underground, under the radar music!  You’ve sold out!  Damn you to hell!!!” and we would not blame you for your anger.  But before you threaten to hit the dreaded “unfollow” button think about this for a minute, even if you’re familiar with Michael Johns’ Idol-related antics have you heard any of his music since he had to suffer the displeasure of being in the same room with Ryan Seacrest? We didn’t think so.  

It’s a epic-fail-like shame that more people haven’t heard of this man’s work because you’ll be hard pressed to find an artist with more emotional soul in the current music scene outside of an Adele album.  In fact I’ll go as far as to say that Michael Johns is the male counterpart to Adele herself, his music is riddled with pain and tortured heartquaking.  With a style reminiscent of Lionel Richie circa 1979 and a chill-causing strain in his upper register that will make you misty eyed if you can relate to the harpsichord melancholy of his lyrcism.  

In a world where you have to feature Akon on your track in order to have a number 1 single Michael Johns’ hearkens back to the days when musicians made music to covey their puzzlement of the mysteries of life.  Like an echo coming down a foggy tunnel you can hear the heartache of lost love in every breathy note that reverberates off his husky voice.   Listen to his music and hear something lost in the over-produced poppycock of present-day musical pandering.  Pay attention and you’ll hear it, its quiet, its whispering, its real.

    I’m happy got you, Michael !
    I have your CD wth your sign on it. Love your voice – I named it SILVER VELVET-
    I called your voice like this on many websites I visited. Review author noticed
    of your voice’s velvety touch, that means I was right…
    Your voice , Michael, is big and rich. Multi gorgeous shades are making every your
    song just unforgettable. You’re really amazing singer and I wish you any succsess.

    What an awesome review ! Could have been written by one of us 😉

    It’s about time more people started hearing what we’ve all heard all along – there’s few artists who sing with as much soul as Mike does.

    Real music from a true professional and MJ deserves every accolade he’s going to get.

    Can’t wait for the new tracks – they’re going to be just as epic as HBMH

    Great review.I love the fact that this reviewer compares Michael to Adele- I so agree. They both have so much feeling in songs when they sing & their voices are so rich. Now if only MJ can get the same recognition as Adele does!
    I’m so looking forward to the new album .

    Love, love, love this review!!!! MJ is truly one of the most passionate singers of all time (one of the many reasons I adore him so much) haha!!!! In all seriousness though, MJ has the ability to draw you in to whatever he’s singing about. The passion and energy that flow through his music is so compelling, it draws you in and keeps you coming back for more everytime!!!!!

    …perhaps that’s why I’ve already wore out 2 copies of HBMH!! 🙂
