About Michael Child
Colorado Springs, CO
Michael Child, who just released his EP The Tension mid-April, finds his inspiration in relationships. Both the good and the bad. Michael doesn’t shy away from writing about the difficult balance that relationships can be. Is his writing process cathartic? Maybe. Does it make for great music? Definitely.
This Colorado Springs singer-songwriter’s skillfully crafted lyrics are combined with a pop-rock feel and refreshing guitar solos. And this catchy music simply oozes universal themes. Michael strives to connect with people through his music, on an emotional and auditory level. Who doesn’t need to have someone vocalize what they’re thinking once in a while? “Courage, I need you now. Courage, don’t let me down. Courage, show me the fire of your ways. Come on, Courage, I need you now.”
Taking cues from artists such as John Mayer, David Gray, and Jon Foreman, Michael Child, has put his heart on the line in this EP. He has opened himself to the good and to the bad. The result is the vulnerable and infectious collection of songs in The Tension.
