VIEW THE FULL INTERVIEW HERE >>

  • Time flies, this is our third interview with you already! I’m looking forward to learning more about you once again.
     
    First of all, for those who haven’t seen your various features in our magazine already and for some reason don’t know much about you, how would you briefly describe yourself?

    • Michael Egleton: I’m a fresh new sound with an old flare, innovative techniques and style, I would best describes and myself and my music. It’s simple, yet mature. Nothing too complicated. A straight to the point sound that’s different in today’s music. Many say I sound like Donny Hathaway, Johnny Taylor, Michael Henderson, Billy Paul and a few other artists and singer from the past such as Isaac Hayes, and Billy Preston. Originally from Barberton, Ohio, I now resides in Akron, Ohio and make my music home in Atlanta, GA, commuting to and from during the year. I have released three independent albums, Baby Baby Baby, the award winning, A Look Into My Heart and my new independent release, That’s Alright “The Rewind”, and one album with the Tate Music Group Label, That’s Alright. Songs from the award winning, A Look Into My Heart CD, are being played on radio stations across the country, the UK and worldwide, on FM, AM and XM stations. I’ve won The Ohio Music Awards, Adult Contemporary category, 2014, The Most Listened to songs for 2014 with Baby Baby Baby “The Remix” with the, It’s All Soul To Me Radio Show with the late Simon Darke Radio Show in the UK, recently, 2016 Akedemia Music Awards, Best in Jazz, and have been an IMA nominee 2014, and am also a 2016 entry into the IMA Music Awards with Behind These Walls featuring Bob Esterle. I’ve had numerous articles and reviews written in many music magazines about myself and my music. Songs from A Look Into My Heart, have quickly reach #1 on every music site they have been a part of. It’s Over “The Remix” was one of the songs featured this year during the domestic abuse crisis of the NFL, and in the personal lives of many private relationships. My past release with the label, Tate Music Group, That’s Alright was a main stay in the top 10 on music charts for the Akron, Canton, Cleveland, and regional Ohio area in the Blues, Soul and Jazz genres on many online music sites. All of my life experiences and lessons shape me as a musician and are reflected in my music.
  • MuzicNotez Crew: You’ve crossed over a lot of genres throughout your career including Jazz, Soul and the Blues. Any genre you haven’t worked in yet that you’d like to try?
    • Michael Egleton: Yes, there are a couple as a matter of fact one being Rock and another being Pop. I’d like to explore the new Christian genres that are starting to pop up also.
  • MuzicNotez Crew: Your last album ‘A Look Into My Heart’ received the Akademia Music Award for Best In Jazz and a 2016 IMA Music Award nomination. How does it feel to be recognized like this?
    • Michael Egleton: This feels great but not for the reasons you may think. It feels great because it validates that I can compete with today’s main stream music playing on major main stream stations today. The individuals that are judges for these events are industry professionals that play and work in the upper levels and know what it takes. This a major question in many artists and musicians minds when they make music, “Is it good enough?” It gives me a point to measure the quality of my music and make sure it stays at that level or better. It’s also a validation from my peers in music. They know what to look for in the music and what to judge other than likability. They compare it to what it took for them when they were award winners. Last but not least, it says before the fans even listen to it that this is quality music.
