CARMICHAEL MUSICLOVER - BIO
Growing up in the South, Carmichael woke up every morning to his parents playing some of the great Soul artists like Al Green and Maze and Frankie Beverly. The influence of these amazing artists has contributed to the smooth sounds and empowering lyrics that have come to be known as Carmichael's signature style, "Grown Folks Lullabies."
The music industry stood up and took notice of Carmichael in 1994, with a major record deal with Manuel Seal of So So Def. His next break came in 2001 when his compilation was selected for the soundtrack for the movie Big Ain't Bad, featuring the singles "You Need a Man" and "Always." Carmichael followed that with the release of two albums, back to back; First in 2003 with the album entitled "Cool and Sexy," then in 2004 with "You Can't Break Me."
Carmichael writes and produces his own songs and became recognized and sought after for his talent as a songwriter. In 2006 he was selected as a writer for The Tony Rich Project with La Face Records.
Carmichael was catapulted to International recording artist status with the release of his third album, "All About Love" in 2007. He began performing across the United States and overseas in London, Italy, Japan and Germany. "All About Love" reached #8 on London's R&B charts, and #2 on the Underground RnB charts in Japan, according to Black Music Review, leading to the album's re-release in 2008.
The first double CD project for Carmichael, entitled "Fantasy/Rain" was released in 2010. "Fantasy/Rain" topped the Japanese Underground R&B charts at #2, according to Black Music Review.
In 2010, Carmichael was honored with the awards for Steppin' Music Artist of the Year and the People's Choice Song of the Year for "Rock It" from the "All About Love" album.
Record deals, soundtracks, back to back album releases, writing, chart topping, international acclaim and award winning music all meant to Carmichael that the people were embracing his gift of music. That is the fantasy come true for the Southern kid who relentlessly pursued his dream.
The latest album, "Pot of Gold,” represents the most mature and powerful offering from Carmichael MusicLover thus far, infused with the signature style listeners have come to depend on.
