Since the releases of the album that almost cracked the top 100 iTunes album charts, he’s opened up for Jadakiss, and soon to be Meek Mill, but due to his untimely incarceration, that performance is postponed. However, during that time, Don Michael got enough search request and inquires to get his own Pandora station, has since appeared on a ton of websites, including HipHopSince1987.com, GrindTime.com and the facebook page of Hot107.1 in Memphis. Interviews with Behind the Sound, and a few other websites are giving people insight into his personality and creativity, all from the quality of work and his unique marketing strategies.
With the launch of his website www.DNMCHLJR.com he put out a short film for the song “No Seats at the Top” along with the free release of the album & a “Field Day Pack” with all the instrumentals and vocals from the album which has sparked a movement of producers world wide remixing songs for Threeday.
With a past of songwriting/producing for artist such as Bad Boy’s Cassie, Universal’s Angel Haze, Cash Money Records Ashley Ring, Veronica V, and Chris Richardson, Hollywood Records girl group The Charlie’s, Asylum Records girl group Parade, KPop group SHINEe, and even writing hooks for the likes of Red Cafe, Rick Ross, Busta Rhymes, and bunch of other relevant artist, it’s easy to see why Don Michael seems to understand song-making on a different level. Being hailed as one of the best studio engineers professionally, he’s probably one of the only artist who can do it all. From writing the harmonies of the song to adjusting the the levels of compression in the mix. A true one stop shop.
