    At the age of seven, Michael Egleton was introduced to music when his mom brought home a guitar for Christmas. He continued to experiment with numerous instruments until finally connecting with the keyboard. Michael began his musical career in church composing and playing music for local gospel artists and churches. Throughout the years his passion for music has broaden to include various genres such as Jazz, Soul, Neo-Soul, R&B, and Blues. Jonny Gill, Donny Hathaway, George Benson, Michael Henderson are a few of the names that come to mind when you hear the music of Michael Egleton. Whether your in the mood to dance, or for love, the soulful, Jazzy sultry blends of piano and orchestra sounds with a sprinkling of Michael's raspy vocals, take you there with every song.

    Today his keyboard is how he interprets life and allows his feelings to flow from his heart. Michael's mature sound can be attributed to his childhood and being raised by his Grandfather, a fiery gospel preacher from the South, who in his younger days played Honkie-Tonk piano around the junk joints of Chicago and New York in the 30's and 40's. This fresh new sound with an old flare, innovative techniques and style, best describes Michael Egleton and his music. It's simple, yet mature. Nothing too complicated. A straight to the point sound that's refreshing in today's music.
