Hailing from beautiful Los Angeles, where musicians and industry hopefuls are a dime a dozen, Rob Michaels isn’t your average artist. With a blues infused rock edge that’s seen comparisons to Daughtry and Creed, Michaels takes pride in his ability to stand apart from a notoriously cutthroat industry, by holding strong to his ethics, values, and beliefs, continually pushing forward for the sake of music. "To me, music is healing,” says Michaels. “It's expressive. It's raw and emotional. It's as open and honest and vulnerable as a person can be."
In January of 2014 Michaels released his latest work, titled “S.O.S.” Produced by Brian Craddock of Daughtry, the five track, 17-minute EP is an in depth look at Michaels’ talents. Now, a year and a half later, Michaels is gearing up for his next big release with a new single called, “Feels Like Home.” Filled with that same edge and grit that we found in “S.O.S.”, the track is four solid minutes of soulful reminiscing through attention-grabbing lyrics, and a rhythm that’s familiar in its approach, yet hooks you with its individuality.
“"Feels Like Home” is the rawest, purest song I have ever written,” explains Michaels, “I wrote it in 3 days as I was driving back from Indiana to California after a horrible breakup. After 11 hour days behind the wheel, and crap food and hotel rooms, I needed a way to get my point across as much as possible. So, that's how it came out."
Michaels is gearing up to release the new single in Spring 2015, and can be seen playing in and around the Los Angeles area this summer.
