Karmen Michael was raised alongside four siblings amidst the humble backdrop of Texas. But at a time when most kids are out playing, Karmen was dreaming of a better life for his family. Karmen found solace in music using the family coffee table as an imaginary piano, he dreamed of being an artist. "We couldn't afford music lessons or a piano, so you learn to hear music in your head first." At 19-years-old, Karmen decided to leave the Lone Star State to follow his passion and pursue a professional career in music in New York City. Within weeks after making a home in Harlem, Karmen was performing at local clubs, open mic sets and lounges throughout the city. While singing at a myriad of popular NYC venues, he realized that he was still struggling to find "people" who believed in him. So, Karmen created his own label, taught himself how to produce, take his on photographs, book, and manage shows. "When no one believes in you, you MUST believe in yourself! I was homeless at one point and sleeping on the floors and sofas at various friends' apartments. Yet it never killed my drive. You, have to be your motivation and encouragement. It made me a better artist and person," says Karmen. His forthcoming album, It's Possible, is a testament to his creative genius. He successfully blends thought-provoking lyrics with dynamic music production. With influences like Leontyne Price, Patti LaBelle, and Prince, this creativity ultimately makes it a remarkable body of work.
