BIOGRAPHY - Mikey Wax

 

Up & coming singer/songwriter Mikey Wax was raised on Long Island and embraced the music of Billy Joel, James Taylor, Dave Matthews Band and other substantive artists from an early age. Wax entered the music scene with the release of his debut album “Change Again” in November of 2008. Quoted by bullz-eye magazine as "uplifting pop/rock and darker, slower-tempo fare", the album received instant recognition ranking at 46 on the iTunes top 100 pop chart in the US, UK, Canada and Australia. Since then, Wax has completed several cross-country tours supporting artists such as Howie Day, Serena Ryder, Landon Pigg, Tyler Hilton & Ryan Cabrera to name a few. The single "In Case I Go Again" has been featured on popular television shows including CBS’s Ghost Whisperer & MTV’s The Real World. Most recently, the music video for “In Case I Go Again” was featured on the YouTube homepage receiving over 500,000 views. In the press, the single has been referred to as "a cool blend of John Mayer meets Coldplay, but clearly still original and catchy!"

In April of 2010, Wax released “The Traveler” EP for free download on his website mikeywax.com. Integrating social networking to download the EP, “The Traveler” received over 10,000 downloads and contributed to Mikey now hosting over 250,000 fans combined via Facebook, Twitter, MySpace and YouTube. In the summer of 2010, Wax completed a headlining house concert tour of 40 homes across the country. This intimate tour left Mikey with hundreds of new fans who connected to his music in a unique and memorable way. "I knew I was onto something after finishing my very first house show in Boston”, says Wax. “There’s such a special connection made when you play for fans in their own living room. It's up-close and personal." The success of the 2010 summer tour created even more demand, and resulted in Mikey performing his second annual summer house tour at over 65 homes. While on stage, fans are intrigued by Wax's ability to play both the guitar and piano simultaneously on original songs like "Last Great Song" and "Back and Forth". Prior to hitting the road, Mikey photo by Cristina Manas went back to the studio to record his second full-length album with producer Warren Huart (The Fray, Kris Allen, James Blunt). The record, titled “Constant Motion”, is a dynamic mix that resonates as both a throwback and a fresh, modern sound. The album self-released on September 20th, 2011, and through word-of-mouth, ranked at #6 on the iTunes singer/songwriter chart, and #47 Billboard Heatseekers. To promote the album, Wax completed a 15-date tour opening for American Idol finalist Elliott Yamin. With a distinctive voice, exciting soul-infused pop/rock sound, and passionate live performances, Mikey Wax appears to be on the verge of breakthrough success.
