Composer, pianist and recording artist Jeffrey Michael has performed for millions of people and sold over 250,000 CD’s worldwide with his self-promotion strategy and record label Fireheart Music and has also composed original music scores for over 70 independent film, tv and video game projects.
Jeffrey Michael grew up in Sterling Heights and Novi, Michigan. As a 2 year old he used to bang on his Great Grandmother’s piano. In 1983 she passed away and her piano was passed along to Jeffrey’s mother. She actually told him not to touch the piano for fear that he would damage it at such a young age. Naturally, he disobeyed her and began playing the piano by ear when he was 6 years old, going on to compose his own music by 11 years old. Jeffrey does not read music but rather is a self-taught musician who utilizes his excellent ear for his music and composes using a special shorthand that he developed as a child prodigy. Some of his musical influences include George Winston, David Lanz, Suzanne Ciani, Hans Zimmer, James Horner and John Williams.
At age 15 Jeffrey broke his right hand and could barely use it to play piano for many months which caused him to develop his left hand much more fully than many pianists. Now he is known for his dexterous two-hand counterpoint melodies. That same year Jeffrey borrowed $1,000 from his father, went to a recording studio and made a recording of his compositions that he began selling in his high school. In two weeks he paid his dad back. The next year he made another recording. By the time he graduated, he had sold 5,000 cassettes of instrumental piano music primarily to high schoolers!
1n 1996 after briefly taking business classes at Eastern Michigan University and Schoolcraft College, Jeffrey created Fireheart Music. Since then he has developed his company into an independent record label and music production company where he composes, produces and arranges piano CD’s. Under the Fireheart label he has released 15 piano CD’s worldwide.
For the past 12 years Jeffrey has been touring the United States performing small concerts and more recently has become one the top art festival musicians in the country. He has also performed for many illustrious companies including Fox, Paramount Pictures, Universal Studios, Robert Mondavi Wineries, Versace and The American Cancer Society.
Jeffrey also composes music for film, television and video games. He has his own recording studio and has composed music for many projects. Some of his credits include Paramount Pictures, Universal Studios, Asics, Sci-Fi Channel, ABC, ESPN, Bravo and Oxygen as well as various reality TV shows.
He plays the guitar, enjoys screenwriting, painting, traveling, fishing, golf, hockey and has played soccer throughout Europe. He now resides in Redondo Beach, California.
