With the highly anticipated release of his first album, “Don’t Look Back”, which features his #16 hit “Give Me Your Smile”, Brendan Michael is doing it all right. With a background in music of over eight years, Brendan enters the music business with little experience but plenty of self determination. As he turned 22 this year, Brendan has moved to Japan to serve the United States of America with the U.S. Navy. He is not only starting his career in the Navy but also behind the microphone. As soon as he set his feet onto the foreign lands of Japan, Brendan went straight into the studio to sing. After days of searching, Yuichiro Oda of Hiroko International Entertainment, saw the talent Brendan has. This partnership has produced 3 singles, a sold out 14 night tour with teen pop sensation Kendel Carson, including venues like the Tokyo Dome and a JAMA nomination for "Best Collaberation 2011" for the tour with Kendel. Now partnering with BML Management Company, the famous International producer and the new artist plan on releasing the new album with original songs written by Brendan and his close musical friends.
Brendan comes from South Kingstown, Rhode Island, where his musical inspiration was started in Middle School when he joined the school choir under the direction of Rose Fuller. Here he competed in many music competitions such as All State, and TRI-M. In High School he was hand selected to join the schools auditioned jazz ensemble, "eSKape", under the direction of Dianne Rebello, former President of the National Music Educators Association and award winning director. "eSKape" is known nationally as an award winning ensamble who tours and competes in various National Competitions. During High School Brendan received Rhode Island’s 2009 Male Vocalist Choir Excellence Award, given to high school students in the state nominated by their directors and school principals. Brendan's professional music life started when he was hired to sing with award winning christian entertainers Tom Kendzia and ValLimar Jansen on a special joint album entitled Get On Board, an album sold worldwide and was was included as a feature act during ValLimar's Nationwide tour.
Putting others first is Brendan's motto. He was chosen to take part in South County’s largest charity event of the year, Relay for Life, where he held the position of Entertainment Chair for 3 consecutive years. Still, he contributes what he can to the organization in his absence. Following high school, Brendan took on his dream business of Music Management and started BML Management Company, a music management company currently consisting of 7 local performers and has worked with top industry producers at Starstruck Entertainment based in Nashville, Tennessee. The Company is run by himself with the support assistance of close musical friends, who also stem from Southern Rhode Island and manages musicians and songwriters from the local area. Brendan plans on fulfilling his education and writing/recording music at the same time to get the best of both worlds. The future is looking good for new age country singer Brendan Michael.
