Today the word for me is PERSEVERE. Hello everyone! :) It's time to free my mind. lol Well it's time to put the last few pieces into place for this machine so it can began to work. One being Management/Manager and the band members. I guess it's learning time again for me. This seems to have been the hardest thing to do. Maybe it's because just anyone won't do! Pressure can make one make the wrong decision and in many case we do. Dead lines, desires to get started, timing and many other factors cause us to place ourselves in a position that is most times found out in the heat of battle. That's why I persevere to have the right pieces in place and do it right the first time! In this business there isn't much room for mistakes. People in your camp must see the vision as you see it and know their role in YOUR vision. Not constantly trying to make it theirs. This is what makes it almost impossible to find that proverbial needles in the hay stack. So I continue looking, until a perfect mate of pieces is felt. I have to bring the heat and plan on doing just that! With that said, you got to have heat makers with ya! I'm so excited with the reception of my new release, A Look Into My Heart. It was also accepted as a IMA Music Awards entrant and has had many great articles and reviews written about it. The music has received great reviews from music industry writers who have listened to and examined each song. Now it's time to live up to what was written on stage and I plan to give the listeners and concert attendees everything I have. With a supporting cast that has the same mind set, WATCH OUT! Thanks for reading. Michael Egleton WWW.MICHAELEGLETON.COM

Hello everyone, fans, new fans, friends and well wishers. Tonight's post will be something a little different. Tonight in my quiet time I was reflecting over my journey so far with my music and different season's I've experienced so far during my journey. The different adversities I've faced and that are to come. I am a believer that anything worth having does require work and sacrifice. What are you willing to sacrifice for your dream? Your level of sacrifice can be compared to your level of belief in your dream. I had never looked at things this way until now. I likened things to a competition mile run. 4 laps around a quarter mile track. Imagine your competitors as being your adversities. In the beginning everyone has energy and is fighting for lane positioning. In the beginning of your quest everything is going crazy with all types of confusion and adversities. More people and things competing against you than for you. Then there's the middle of the race where the runners have settled into their lanes and everyone is pacing themselves. In your quest toward your dream, imagine this time as things going smoothly as you move forward in your quest of your dream. Now we're coming into the last lap, runners are tired, struggling, your tired and winded, in your quest imagine this time as "hell time"! Everything seems to be going wrong, adversities or in our analogy, runners are on each side and maybe in front fight to get in front. Elbowing, pushing, bumping each other and in some case tripping and falling as adversities can cause one to do in their quest toward their dream. Don't stop though. If you may have tripped, get up and keep running. Now the finish line is in view. Hopefully at this time your way ahead in your quest of your dream. Now is the time for your second wind, your kick as runners describe this part of the race. The finish line is your dream. It's right there and your winning. Lean in and cross the line! The race is not given to the swift nor to the strong but to the one that endures to the end... Finish strong!
Hello everyone, my fans, new fans, well wishers and friends! Well it's time to post another Progress report! Mr. KT Beats of Atlanta, GA has teamed up with me for the cut, Playing A Game going on the A Look Into My Heart Project! I'm so, so excited to be working with this gift young beat maker and rapper out of the ATL. Playing A Game was supposed be be out much sooner as an early release but as things would have it, different snafoos and just your normal dead line mishaps kept creeping up. Couple that with the fact that we, KT, Wes and myself wanted this song to be just right right for the Hip-Hop listeners. Well it's finally coming down the pipe. Quality music is first and foremost on this project and Playing A Game is it! Not only is the music kicking but the lyrics tell a story of how things are when playing games in love. KT is also rapping on this cut! Yes, you get to taste his skills on the mic. This songs promises to get your motor going! If your one of those Playing Games, check this cut. See what it get ya!

I was so blown away until I had to sit down! Get ready to have ya soul rocked with my best work to date with these two new projects, That's Alright (the remix) and A Look Into My Heart. He will be joining the great, Wes McCraw of Creekside Audio in the production of these two projects! If you want to preview a few snipits of these projects, visit me at www.reverbnation.com/michaelegleton or WWW.MICHAELEGLTON.COM !
Hello Everyone! My fans, new fans, friends and well wishers. I'm always happy to be writing to you. Well guess what? I got the time to write another blog post! I'm happy to report all the raw tracks for both projects are Done! With the exception of one. He knows who he is. I don't want to spill the beans! lol Now it's time for my producer(s) to work their magic and mold things into something that will do what it's supposed to do. I know I said I was NOT going to release anything else from the project until it was done BUT I had to let a little more out to just wet your taste buds and drive the point home that this is my best efforts yet! I put a snipit of a song that's going on my new project, A Look Into My Heart at Reverbnation and it has been posted and shared through FB, LinkedIn and other places ALREADY in a 24 hour period already! It is HOT! On this cut I have my new band member and friend who 2 yrs ago was playing with the Master of Funk himself, Mr. George Clinton of the historic, Funkadelics! Illness caused him to step away for 2 years and now he's back with a fire! His name is Greg Rolling or as he's known in the Parliament Band, "Funky Finger". He's singing backgrounds on my new project song, Like My Girl. We finished what you hear at 5 am this morning! Then we listened to it over and over until about 6 am. LOL It's the first snipit here on my page at Reverbnation. Give it a listen and leave a comment about what ya think about it. It's a song about young teen age love and things we have done to sneak and be together also how we felt while doing them. Ok, I'm done. I'll let you go and be the judge and think back on your teenage love. Talk soon! M. E.
Well it's been a while since I've written anything on my blog or anywhere else as far as that goes! lol I've been locked in the studio working towards the completion of both my new projects, A Look Into My Heart, due out in May 2014 and That's Alright (the remix). My project A Look Into My Heart, is running a little behind. There's not much one can do when an artist gets writers block as was the case with one ofy guest artist. Wes McCraw my producer, and I are working hard to meet our set production goals so we did a work around and kept plugging away! 90% of the songs for this project are in the hopper and a May release should be reached. The second early single release, Playing A Game will drop any day now and promises to be worth the wait. It's featuring up and coming Atlanta, GA rapper and beat maker, KT Beats doing his thing along with me, Michael Egleton holding down my end in song and on the keys. There are other hot songs to like on the new project too Dunk A Dunk, featuring one of the hottest sax players around in Bill "Soulman" Clark from HOT Atlanta group, N-Da-Groove. Then there's the soulful instrumental, You and I, and a blast from the past, Baby Baby Baby (the remix). For Jazz lovers there's the tune Back In My Heart and a few more on this project that will light your fire and make you "feel". The second new project, That's Alright (the remix) is also 95% in the green! I've been working hard yall! This project has received a major rebuild! I wanted something fresh and new not something warmed over! I wanted That's Alright to reach it's fullest potential. How I heard it in my mind the first time. All the tracks were replayed and redone. There are extras on this remix with a little help from my friends. The song on this project may have the same titles but the music is far different. With a much cleaner sound and fresh instrumentation, this time around is HOTTER! One of the songs, It's Over (the remix) will be one of the feature songs in my new long play EPK done by the award winning Blue-Artists Group in Washington, DC. I've already witnessed the reaction of some to this new soulful and emotional redo of this song. That's Alright (the remix) will deliver. It has what you need and what your searching for. Well that's it! That's what's been going on in my world! Don't forget to stop by WWW.MICHAELEGLETON.COM and get your copy of my new early release, Why Does It Hurt So Bad and while there take the opportunity to listen to Baby Baby Baby (the remix). Both songs are from the new A Look Into My Heart project coming in May 2014. Don't forget Autism Awareness! Til next time... Michael Egleton
