Ian Michael Talks His Career and More | BHL’s Next

BHL: Next – In this episode, our Black Hollywood Live host Rhelin Taylor welcomes Ian Michael to discuss his career and more on BHL’s Next!

Ian Michael is a 22-year-old recording artist, producer and songwriter. He is an energetic and highly passionate artist that is looking to leave a huge mark on the music industry.

His sound is often described as “when new school meets old school” coveting an eclectic catalog that infuses 80’s pop, 90’s R&B, early 2000’s hip-hop with the swag and technique of the music today. His catchy hooks and honest lyrics grab you from the start and tell you a story about a piece of Ian’s life.

He says he “draws inspiration from every style of music” but cites his highest inspiration to come from the likes of Michael Jackson, Drake, Barry White and James Brown.

In 2012, producer PK (Chris Brown’s “Fine China” and “Final Countdown”) encouraged Ian to consider taking his music seriously and pursuing it professionally. He spent the next 4 years studying the business of the music industry and focusing on his creativity. He recorded in various studios in Studio City and Hollywood, CA, where he worked on developing his writing, singing, rapping and artistry.

Over the past year and a half, Ian has been working with renowned producer Haskel Jackson (Kanye West, Tony Williams and Chaka Khan), fine tuning his own unique sound.

In July 2016, Ian released his debut single “Girl from the North” which garnished some attention in his college town of Fullerton, CA. Ian released his debut EP “THEGFTNEP” on November 11, 2017.

. He says, “The EP is a true story of a relationship from my past. I ended up getting heartbroken but the heartbreak was something that inspired me to go after the thing I truly loved: the music.”

Ian’s clean-cut manner and eclectic style allow him to perform in a wide variety of venues including Rose Hookah Lounge, Venice Beach, The Observatory, The BET Awards Pre-Party, and the West Adams Jazz and Music Festival.
