Future plans/projects

���The studio is comfortable with no distractions and has a great vibe. It�۪s very relaxing to be outside of Austin and away from the scene. Michaux is a very diligent Engineer who is patient with anticipation of the perfect take. He is easy to work with and has a very laid back attitude. At the same time, he is always ready and eager to keep the session moving on schedule. I was considering buying a Pro Tools system before working with Michaux. Michaux made Pro Tools look so easy that I decided to purchase a Pro Tools system for my pre-production work in LA. Whenever I am working with an Austin artist, we will record at Michaux Music Studios.�۝ Andre ���L.A. Dre�۝ Bolton ��� Producer, Los Angeles: NWA, Too Short, Easy E, Michel�۪le, DOC, Above the Law"If you are looking for someone who is meticulous, caring, passionate and exacting about your project, and someone who has an instinctual prowess at getting great sounds and productions, then Michaux is your guy.�۝ Rex Schnelle ��� Producer / Engineer, Sony Studios Nashville: Jessica Simpson, Olivia Newton John, Jon Bon Jovi, Brooks and Dunn, Waylon Jennings, Tim McGraw The family legacy continues through the son of Jimmie Vaughan and nephew of the late Stevie Ray Vaughan. ���Michaux is a young soulful cat with his finger on the pulse of what�۪s really going on in today�۪s music. I found the best guitar, drum and vocal sounds here, just outside of Austin. The studio has a clean environment, is free of distractions and is a place where I can get away and really focus on the music. Michaux is patient and has a great ear ��� but my tracks speak for themselves. Michaux produces some of the best sounding vocal tracks of mine or anyone else�۪s that I have ever heard.�۝ Tyrone Vaughan - Artist, Guitarist, Songwriter (Former lead guitarist for Breedlove) ���To have a chance at airplay, your songs and recordings must be ���radio ready�۝. This requires artist development by experienced Producers and great Engineers who are skilled in your genre of music. Michaux Music offers both of these elements. I personally witnessed the development of Tyrone Vaughan by Michaux Music. The results are undeniably ���radio ready�۝. I highly recommend Michaux Music to any artist for development and recording. MichauX�۪s music is on the cutting edge of where Gospel, R&B and Soul music is headed in the future of radio and has the timeless qualities of Classic Soul. His sound holds the listener and he is definitely an artist that radio should take notice of." Preston Lowe Music Director The Beat 104.3 KQBT- FM Austin ���I came from another studio to Michaux for mixing and I was so pleased with the sound. Michaux was professional, honest, and genuinely interested in my project.�۝ Teresa Claiborne Artist, Songwriter ���I have worked in studios across the country and have found Michaux to be the most innovative Engineer that I have ever worked with.�۝ Perry Lowe Producer, Artist, Songwriter ���This is fresh and necessary music, not at all what you might expect. MichauX�۪s vocals will captivate you for the entire record and his songs will keep you coming back for more!�۝ Ter ���ell Shahid, Artist, Engineer, Producer - Darkskin Music Selected Credits: Knappy Roots, Erykah Badu, Jaborn, Bavu Blakes, Malford Milligan, Overlord, Tyrone Vaughan, Tony Thompson - Hi Five, Salih Williamson, Mahogany, Lil Black, Lil Raskul ���MichauX has tunes that seem to stick with ya; great vocals, nice production and good arrangements.�۝ Malford Milligan World Renowned Singer / Songwriter ���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, CEO Club Praize Magazine Consultant to ���Showtime at the Apollo�۪ Orange, New Jersey
