“Andy has such soul inspiring music!” (Q108 Radio - Canada, Oct 2017)
“It's especially gratifying to discover new music that appreciates melody and lyric and can be appreciated by audiences of any age or genre “ - Broken Road Radio, USA, Nov 2017)
"Poet, composer, singer and guitarist, Andy is a wonderful breath of fresh of fresh air in a somewhat cynical and tumultuous musical world.” (Coastal Times, WA, 2016)

Press Reviews

“Another poetic winner for Andy Michaels. It doesn’t take more than a single look at its tracklist to fall in love with the man who gives it such luster.”

“A diverse look into the future of pop/rock… fabulous new album -one of the best indie LPs I’ve heard on either side of the pacific in 2020”

“He’s at the forefront of a sonic hurricane not to be messed with. This really is an amazing time to be a fan of indie pop/rock …He is a premier singer/songwriter and hero to adult contemporary fans everywhere”

“This is one indie artist we need to follow into the spotlight. His confidence is infectious .. Andy Michaels undeniably shines like a diamond and the unstoppable buzz surrounding the new album Incendiary Heart is only spiking.”

“Required listening….it is only fitting that one of pop/rocks most promising singer/songwriters would choose to end the decade on such a progressive note as this one”

“There’s something really special about what we’re met in making harmony-powered pop great again and feels like the first movement of an epic symphony. Andy Michaels can croon like nobody’s business. One of the better full-length follow-up’s listeners can expect to obtain”

“He wants us on the edge of our seats from the time we start to the moment the music fades into darkness once more, and he makes that happen every chance he gets. It’s a slam dunk for this up and coming Australian powerhouse”

I believe it’s the true north to Michaels’ aesthetical compass right now. Australians and Americans alike who haven’t already done so should pick up Incendiary Heart this January – it’s as independent as indie folk/rock gets, and that’s nothing to scoff at in our modern times.

Young singer/songwriters just starting out could stand to take a page or two out of his playbook when it comes to making the sequel to a well-received debut album; for this critic, his controlled approach and conservative attitude serve as a breath of fresh air.

Michaels is at the start of an incredible journey in this LP. I’ll be checking out his deeper discography after having fallen in love with this latest release for sure. Every pulsing element of the rhythm counts as much as any verses do

I think we can collectively regard this latest record as his very best, and even more than that, his most honest.

“Undoubtedly the most mature and well-thought out albums to debut out of the Australian underground in 2019 and successfully introduces a world hungry for bittersweet pop balladry to a man who makes the very sort of music we need now more than ever”

“How versatile this artist can be regardless of the style he’s employing in any given track. Simply put, he isn’t about to be pegged down to one aesthetical box in Incendiary Heart. His new record is something every music aficionado should be spinning this month.”

“It’s a quantum leap forward for this mild-mannered musician, and one of my go-to listens this January for sure. While Revisited had some incredible harmonies, this album forces Andy Michaels to push himself to the very edge with his vocal, and the results of his efforts are pure gold. His navigation of complicated instrumental arrangements should be enough to leave any indie connoisseur on their knees begging for more”

“This 14-track masterpiece is both sonically and visually inspiring. Michaels is able to share his vision of life and love in this intense and intricately woven melodic tale. Incendiary Heart by Andy Michaels is a magical journey comprised of theatrical melodies and passionate prose of song and voice” “.

“It’s definitely one of the most fun, and easy-going, pop releases that you can expect to get a hold of before the spring season breaks. Lovers of good ol’ fashioned harmony and hybrid grooves needn’t look much further than this for a killer tracklist adorned with as much cosmetic beauty as it is genuine substance, and if you’ve never taken the time to hear his music before, I think this would serve as a great way of getting to know Andy Michaels as an artist on the rise.”

“His momentum isn’t going to be slowing down anytime soon. He’s got a great way of connecting with his audience, and in Incendiary Heart’s finest of moments, he shows listeners just how much he can evolve within only a few minutes’ time. Melody is this guy’s main prerogative, and that’s confirmed beyond any sort of doubt here”

“Has made a genuine fan out of me with Incendiary Heart, which ties together a lot of the loose ends left over from Revisited while staying true to the conceptual identity he started to build with the release of his very first song. Audiences around the world could use someone with his panache to start the new decade off right – breathtaking LP”

“Undoubtedly the most mature and well-thought out album to debut out of the Australian underground in 2019 and successfully introduces a world hungry for bittersweet pop balladry to a man who makes the very sort of music we need now more than ever.”

“Unapologetically evocative on every level that matters, his efforts produce some of his best work so far and then some. His emphasis on even the most minor of details is admirable both critically and artistically in today’s ragtag culture of pop music. The music video for “Darling It Hurts” completely captures the essence of the energy that makes its parent album so hard to put down”

“Soulful and impassioned as Cat Stevens’ voice, Michaels skilfully infuses the trademark sounds of traditional folk and modern pop into the songs of his latest record, while he also infuses expansive and theatrical elements which rival the music of Pink Floyd and David Bowie”

“Full of emotion with a defined yet flexible aesthetic you will be hard-pressed to walk away from Incendiary Heart without one of its many catchy lines or beats nailed into your brain. The eclectic genre blending of the instrumentals creates a unique feel and a uniting sound for the album as a whole. Combined with catchy and emotional lyrics, these tracks will warm your heart”.

“Andy Michaels demonstrates his outstanding songwriting talent, fusing brilliant lyricism with inspired melodies”

“His delicate arrangements and lyrical prowess is phenomenal in this collection of tracks”
“A magical journey comprised of theatrical melodies and passionate prose of song and voice. This 14-track masterpiece is both sonically and visually inspiring”
“Nothing short of spectacular because musically, lyrically, vocally and artistically, ‘Incendiary Heart’ is a thing of beauty”
“Delivers highly memorable songs with a keen sense of melody and poignant lyrics to create a mesmerizing music experience”
“Incendiary Heart is a beautifully-produced work of love, and it’s an album that will cut straight to the listener’s heart as Andy Michaels is clearly singing from his own.” Michaels’ voice is soulful and impassioned like Cat Stevens, but his sound is much more expansive and theatrical with evident touches of both Pink Floyd and David Bowie.
“Incendiary Heart is a myriad of genres, instruments and vocal resurgence. Andy Michaels does not just sing; he speaks poetry, which has become a lost art in today’s age of EDM and pop music. 10/10 ”
“An eclectic collection of styles and sounds that will steal your heart. Uplifting melodies and lyrics that speak to the soul, Incendiary Heart is a landmark record that will have you coming back for more”
“A Killer sound that will make you take notice”
“Electric, eclectic, and haunting - Andy Michaels returns with powerful and emotionally searing album 'Incendiary Heart' “Incendiary Heart is a spark within a myriad of Top 40 fare. Long after the record has stopped, lingers an intense emotional response. Incendiary Heart is definitely a searing work. Outstanding in every way, Michaels is at the peak of his game”
