Michelle O Faith - Recording and Release of EP 2

Main_Shot_original_size

Michelle O Faith is a young singer/songwriter/composer from South London. 

Penning her first lyric aged just 5, at 11, she begun using music software to produce her own songs. A 90’s baby, Michelle grew up on Pop music – then, aged 10, was awarded a scholarship to study Classical Voice at the prestigious Blackheath Conservatoire of the Arts. By the time she’d finished her A-Levels, she was a Grade 8. She is a Classical Pianist, too; and, recently graduated from a Russell Group university with a Bachelor’s in Classical Music. 

This life-long affinity for Pop music, with a background of training rooted firmly in Classical, coalesces in Michelle’s distinctive sound. Her debut EP No Romance in China, released 2015, juxtaposes elements of traditional Pop songwriting – anthem-like choruses, and ear-worm hooks – with a striking, oddball vocal branded by the songstress’ effortless transition between a familiar Pop sound, and refined operatic technique. Lyrics are incisive – employing metaphor to put innovative spins on relatable topics. The result…? Something genre-defying. “Michelle O Faith tears up the Pop blueprint,” wrote Hunger of the EP’s lead single, the epic Sleep Through The Fire. 

Women Make Music will fund Michelle‘s highly anticipated 2nd EP – working title Birthday Blues. Funds will go towards: the recording of 5 new songs; a promotional campaign; filming of music videos; and, hire of a band for live dates at key London venues, with the end-goal of joining the festival circuit in 2017.
