Andy Michaels Interview
Muzique Magazine. When did you start making music and taking it serious?
Andy Michaels. After I was recovering from a serious car accident when I was only 18 years old, I started to learn and play guitar seriously. The song writing followed later.
Muzique Magazine. Do you feel that the industry needs more artist like yourself? Why?
Andy Michaels. Actually I do because music should be about the fusion of lyrics and melody, not just one or the other. There seems to be a void of music which harnesses the power of intelligent and emotive lyrics and memorable melodies at the same time.

Muzique Magazine. Who was your inspiration?
Andy Michaels. Cat Stevens, Pink Floyd, David Bowie and Neil Young
