About
Soul Music Singer, affectionately known as "The White Marvin Gaye" by those who have heard him sing was even honored to have received a very special message from Janis Gaye, the wife of Marvin Gaye:

“People who love Marvin Pentz Gaye Jr. need to check out this great artist called Michaux. I was doing a Google search and found Michaux and was completely blown away. He has done a bluesy, retro-style cover of Marvin's What's Going On album called "What's Going On ... Still ..." . It is not an imitation. It is an interpretation that we (the entire Gaye Family) love. The tracks are not overdone but they are powerful. His singing and music is organic, it's beautiful and it touched me. I couldn't not call and congratulate Michaux and tell him that he's has done a tremendous job! This album was done with respect, love, honor and integrity. I've never had a reaction like this to anyone who has covered Marvin's music. I can truly hear the love coming through Michaux's music. My son Frank, grandson Nolan and daughter Nona are all listening to Michaux's new album; What's Going On … Still … and enjoying him performing Marvin's music.

Michaux's powerful, yet smooth and sultry voice is often compared to Soul legends such Marvin Gaye, Curtis Mayfield and The Isley Brothers. He recaptures the melodic smoothness of classic 70's Soul with a modern appeal for today's generation. His first record, 'Just Michaux' is in record stores and playing on radio stations around the world! The multi-talented and seasoned singer / songwriter / producer has received stellar reviews from all over the U.S., U.K., France, Germany, Switzerland, The Netherlands and Canada. Michaux has performed in the UK and Ireland, all over Texas and the New York City area including the infamous 'Showtime at the Apollo'. Michaux's live set will definitely surprise you. With his bellbottoms, wide collars, and vintage sound, he brings an authentic retro soul vibe that takes the listener back to the ultimate 70's soul experience, while mixing in the perfect blend of jazz, funk and R&B.

“Michaux captures Marvin Gaye's breathtaking emotional depth on new album.”…..

“The late Marvin Gaye was the Mount Olympus of soul. Reaching that summit is an impossible task. Many have tried, only to embarrassingly stumble.
However, Michaux was able to defeat the odds. On What's Going On…Still…
Michaux's icy crooning on “God Is Love” conjures the spirit of Gaye so eerily well that it almost feels like there's a ghost in the room. The eternal title track echoes the weariness caused by today's troubled times in the aching passion of Michaux's vocals.”

“We were looking for something new and edgy for 'Showtime at the Apollo'. MichauX's voice and music is unique and different than anything we have heard before and we believe that the audience will really relate to his music and the message.”
Malika Smith – Consultant to 'Showtime at the Apollo' (NYC)

“Michaux gives us a very classy take on Marvin's classic What's Going On album amazingly recorded live in one take, direct to tape, not edits, no computers, using only equipment and techniques used back in the day. This is real serious back to basics work, just fantastic!”
Roger Willaims, Solar Radio, UK

“Michaux gives us quite a treat sharing Gaye's soft tenor vocal improvisation, a really great tribute to Marvin Gaye reminding us that great music can be timeless. This is real quality stuff from start to finish!”
Chris Crates, Radio Meltdown, ALLFM 96.9FM Manchester UK

“Tight, sublime and arrangement is spot on. Marvin is smiling up above, that's what's happening brother.”
Kevin Baynham – Radio Presenter/Dj. Music Events and Artist Promotions at Life and Soul Promotions Gloucester, UK

“Truly a talent with a great voice!” Sean Birdsall, Founder, Limetree Music Festival, North Yorkshire, UK

“Michaux captures the beauty and agony of Gaye's work in this incredibly moving tribute.” – Jazz Times

“Michaux lives up to his name with 'What's Going On … Still …,' investing Marvin's sacred masterpiece with a mellow, soulful Sunday afternoon space reincarnation.”A. Scott Galloway – Music Editor – The Urban Network – Los Angels, CA

“Michaux lovingly takes on “What's Going On,” providing a loose, funky, organic jam session that absolutely works, reminding us how great these songs are and how the lyrics hit home in 2011 just as they did in 1971.”
Chris Rizik, Publisher – – Ann Arbor, MI

"Michaux successfully brings back the genius of Marvin Gaye in many areas and excels in his skill of laid-back jazz adlibs. His tenor is a dead ringer for Marvin. If music casting were to choose who could recapture Marvin's heart and jazzy soulful voice, Michaux unequivocally qualifies with What's Going On … Still … “
