JEAN-MIKHAEL – DEAL
LABEL: OTOD RECORDS | RELEASE: 09/11/18
“Jean-Mikhael’s bold songcraft, powerhouse vocals and leaning towards the theatrical, there’s no doubt ‘Deal’ is a showstopper. And this is just the beginning.” – NEON Music
Enriched with soulful vulnerability and vocal prowess, up-and-coming singer songwriter Jean-Mikhael delivers his brand new single ‘Deal’ with a unique, contemporary R&B sound. The record is taken from his debut EP of the same name that is due for release on 9th November.
Theatrical, striking and emotionally captivating, Jean-Mikhael has clearly perfected this current chapter of his art prior to presenting it to the world. His confidence and skill push the boundaries of forward thinking electronica whilst his lyrical craft is partnered with charming melodies his rich vocals, making this a beautiful first piece from this impressive young talent.
Having carefully selected his own time to release music recordings, his musical journey is far from infancy as he sports an impressive CV. Not only a BRIT School graduate, following in the footsteps of notable alumni such as Adele, Amy Winehouse, Jessie J and Ella Eyre, his first musical venture was as the young Michael Jackson in London’s West-End production of ‘Thriller LIVE’. Having tasted life as a performer, his show stopping, showman tendencies continue to play a central role within all aspects of his music, from the sound and delivery through to the visuals themselves, the first of which is set to release alongside the ‘The Deal’ EP. His live presence has also awarded him with a sold-out headline show at 229 the Venue and performances for platforms such as Sofar Sounds and People’s Day 2018.
Presenting a brand new slab of unheard music and a delicious taste of what Jean-Mikhael is all about, ’The Deal’ EP is about boundless expression. Glossy, innovative and empowering, the EP is a deliberate construction that has been built from a recipe of productions, emotions, visuals and lyrics, all seasoned with time rather than being rushed out, which is a standout difference to his music. “Everything new, and new again,” he says of ‘The Deal’. “This is just to say hello to everyone – a way to get to know me.”
