NATIONAL PRESS//

"Stylistically, he is difficult to pigeonhole because his sound amalgamates many different flavors, blending R&B, pop and blues into awesomely immediate melodies, evocative lyrics and contagious rhythms. Michael Shynes really has it going on."
-The Huffington Post

"His fully formed musical and vocal talent establishes Shynes as a performing and songwriting force to reckon with now and likely in years to come."
-Gashouse Radio

"Michael Shynes flies with inspired musical creativity and reaches the sort of heights we aren't accustomed to hearing performers match so early in their careers. Shynes' dedication has paid off and he's well on his way to embodying his every musical ambition."
-No Depression

"His vocal abilities occupy a lofty position indie music will simply never be able to contain. We are privileged to witness his ascent and, if he continues writing and recording songs this good, his skyward climb will be swift."
-Vents Magazine

"Musically, I'm in love. His light, accessible, passionate sound is one that had me hitting the repeat button on one song for almost an hour."
-Rebecca Cicione A&R Columbia Records

"The rising star creates an intimate environment through his music." -Diana Bonilla of the LA Examiner

"If you're looking for a new artist to get hooked on, Michael Shynes has got you covered."
-BackPocketBelievers.net

"Shynes has worked to maintain a unified intimacy in his lyrical content, while expanding the dynamic nature of his sound. The result is original songs that are easy to relate to, and have legitimate staying power."
-HearItLocal.com

"Songs like these are why being a music head in Minnesota is so wonderful."
-Michelle Los Minneapolis Examiner

When I started planning my perfect wedding, I knew I wanted a live performance of a singer. I found Michael online and listened to a few sample songs that he sang. Instantly I fell in love with his voice and the arrangements that he brings to popular hits. I had my fiancé listen to him as well and he had the same reaction as I did. So I booked him right away. We went to a few of Michael's concerts and was even more impressed with his own songs that he wrote and performed. When our wedding day finally came I couldn't wait for Michael to perform our first dance. When he started singing our first dance song I felt like was I was in a fairy tale, it was so perfect!!

Michael was the hit of the wedding reception he played for us. He was on time, took request, moved his setup for our outdoor wedding than back in doors for the reception, and most importantly his was happy to be there. Can't wait to see him play again.

Michael could not have been better. He performed at our wedding and just was perfect. He is a great communicator and wanted to make sure our ceremony was everything we want it to be. I hope to drum up some other event to have him play at. Guests at the wedding were asking how to book him. i can't imagine having anyone better than Michael.

Michael performed during our wedding ceremony and was absolutely a highlight of our day! He is an amazingly talented artist! Michael is very easy to work with and helped to customize the songs performed during our ceremony. After the ceremony many guests commented on the music and absolutely loved Michael and the songs he performed. I would recommend Michael to anyone, as he helped to make our day complete! We couldn't of asked for a better musician, thank you Michael! - Matt and Rachel

We hired Michael to play at our wedding reception and he was phenomenal. He learned a few songs we requested which made the reception that much more special. All our guests raved about good he was. He offered to DJ if we wanted as he was set up for it, but he was so good we didn't want him to stop! We couldn't have asked for a better singer at our wedding. He was extremely easy to work with and I would highly recommend him for any event!

Michael was the musician for our 9/4/15 wedding. He did an amazing job and our guests (young and older) absolutely loved him!! He was so easy to work with and was 100% flexible with our schedule and the songs that we requested. He also switched from performing to DJing for the dance which seemed to go over well with our guests.
