Michael Shynes

Minneapolis, MN

"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

The fact that Shynes is a Midwest-born singer/songwriter with a Platinum Record in Poland, in many ways, perfectly sums up the unlikelihood of his career. It’s definitely not a story following a neatly carved path rooted in tailored logic. He is a self-taught musician from a small town that grew a career out of nothing more than hustle and eclectic, soulful songwriting. And it was all born out of simply being a son who had lost his father, deciding to quit the day job and chase an unlikely dream.
