Michel William is a Mozambican artist, songwriter and music producer. His main instrument is guitar.
He is inspired and influenced by many artists of different genres, but falling mainly into reggae, ska, blues, funk and Marrabenta all of that combined makes his music flourish in a unique way.
Growing up he enjoyed hearing and interpreting songs from artists like James Blunt, Maroon 5, Tracy Chapman, Djavan, Caetano Veloso, Bob Marley, Michael Jackson, Avelino Mondlane just to name a few. He first started playing piano around the age of ten but he only developed his songwriting skills when he started playing the guitar at 16 years old.
Although music and art in general was something his parents, specifically his mother didn’t encouraged, that was the only way he could find to ease his mind and express himself.
Not only he sings for the joy of music but for peace, love, awareness and a positive state of mind.
“With so much negativity happening around the world i use music as way to bring us together so we can grow as one, because we can’t stop wars, starvation with more wars and hunger games”
Thanks to a crowdfunding campaign on PPL (a crowdfunding platform from Portugal) he was able to produce and launch his first album I’ve Got A Plan.
