      Bio

      MICHAEL STERLING
      (BIO)
      What can you call someone who plays multiple instruments, composes, arranges, directs, sings and has been a skilled songwriter for years? Generic labels like impresario, maestro, multi-talented or Renaissance man don’t seem to encompass the extraordinary gift of Michael Sterling’s musicianship.

      So what you do when faced with this seeming inability to describe such a wondrous gift is delve deeper into who this artist is --knowing that if you experience his music through his perception -- the words you seek will finally come.

      Understanding Michael’s music requires you to know a bit of his background. A Miami native, his musical career started in his teens when he played bass for popular Latino recording artist Ray Fernandez. Eager to branch out into another direction, Michael and two childhood friends formed the group Silver Platinum, who quickly scored a hit on the R&B charts with their hit “Dance”.

      Michael then went on to play Lead Guitar and sing as a member of the Grammy Award winning reggae band Inner Circle. Inner Circle is most known for their hit “Bad Boys” which is used as the theme song for the Bad Boys film franchise that stars Will Smith and Martin Lawrence. It is also used as the theme song for hit television show COPS.

      After touring the world with Inner Circle, Michael returned to Miami. While developing his career as a solo artist, Michael also spent time as an audio engineer and producer at Luke Records, where he engineered and produced hits for artists 2 Live Crew, MC Shy D, JT Money and others. He also served as musical director for BMG recording artist Blu Cantrell.

      While assisting in the development of other artists’ careers, Michael continued to strengthen as a songwriter, and soon found many of his original compositions being covered by some of the hottest artists out today. DJ Khaled with Chris Brown, Nicki Minaj, Future, Rick Ross used his music for "Do You Mind" His song “Holiday” served as inspiration for the derivative Trick Daddy single “Thug Holiday”, which is also the title track of Trick’s Platinum album.

      Then Lil' Jon and the East Side Boys, Usher and Ludacris covered his song “ Lovers and Friends” for their smash 2005 single of the same name. The song was released on the quadruple platinum album “Crunk Juice” and was the winner of two BMI Billboard awards including ‘Hip Hop Song of the Year’. In 2006, his song “Bedroom Boom” was covered by The Ying Yang Twins featuring Avant on the platinum Ying Yang CD “U.S.A”.

      Michael continues to use his formidable talents as a music industry heavyweight. His charismatic and unique voice has been featured in performances on the Today Show and the Tonight Show with Jay Leno.

      In November 2017, he will release his catalog for digital sales The albums chronicle the songs and musical arrangements that have earned him great respect as the “people’s singer” in Miami and around the world.

      His passion however is his new album, Bedtime Stories and Eyes Around My Heart 2nd Edition, which was released 2016/ 2017. Those projects are musical reminders of what true artistry is all about. The smooth pop and R&B songs featured on the albums have garnered rave reviews and fans worldwide eagerly anticipating his tour.
      And so we return to the question of what do you call a man whose gifts run the gamut from music to film to label executive and whose artistry as a musician covers the genres of pop, reggae, hip hop and R&B? You call him what he is. A virtuoso -- a musical genius whose career will only continue to inspire and awe all those who have the unique privilege of consuming his music.
