The Countdown 2017 | Michon Young

Under the guidance of Brian Hurst from, Atlanta Records continues to shine with sizzling new talent that meet at the intersection of Soul and Jazz. This time it's Michon Young, hailing from Detroit (by way of Gary, Indiana) and delivering a deep gospel-tinged vocal on her debut. Love,Life,Experiences is at once a meditation and a groove as Michon writes and sings from the heart. In her words:

I have always believed that music is love. It is universal. It can soothe the soul, bring tears to your eyes or simply just place you in a reflective state. Either way, music has the ability to penetrate the heart and invoke many genuine, real emotions. Each song on this project is taken from a personal experience. Each song represents a part of my life that most can relate to e.g. the joy and excitement of love, the hurt that love can sometimes bring and the encouragement that you sometimes must give yourself when you’re left facing life alone. This project takes you on a journey from beginning to end. For me, this musical journey was written from experiencing the pain of lost love but also the joy of finding new love again. It also lyrically expresses the concerns about the divisive world we’re living in today and the importance of uniting as one. Many songs on this project are filled with Live instrumentation. I’ve always been a fan of old school great musical composition and the way it merged with sound lyrical content. “Love, Life, Experiences”, tells a story similar to the stories told in years past by songwriters and musicians alike. This is my story. My hope is that at least one song from this project will touch a heart, involve a raw emotion, soothe the soul, uplift and inspire. I hope many will enjoy the journey and musical ride of “Love,Life,Experiences”.                                                                                                                                                                          - Michon
