Robert Michaels

Juno Award-nominated artist Robert Michaels is a platinum-selling guitarist who made a name for himself with two impressive independent releases even before the Warner Music Canada label put their backing behind a third album in 1998. His instrumental music crosses over into samples and tastes from many genres, including flamenco guitar numbers. Michaels started his musical career in Canada, though his parents aren't Canadian natives, but immigrated there from Italy. As a child, and than as a teen, Michaels was raised on a varied musical diet that found him being influenced by many different kinds of musicians and styles along the way, like Jimmy Page, Carlos Santana, and Wes Montgomery, and everything from rock, to tango, to jazz.

In 1996, without befit of a label, Michaels completed and released a debut album titled Paradiso. Surprisingly, his first full-length outing sold better than he could have hoped. It was soon followed by a second recording, Arizona. The sophomore not only sold better than the first album, but even earned him a nomination for a coveted Juno Award for Best Instrumental Artist of the Year. Reviews and press from his popular albums and from his Juno nomination, drew enough interest toward Michaels that when he went to work on a third album, Utopia, he did so working under the major Warner Music Canada label. For the new millennium he completed an album filled with Christmas music. The holiday offering is titled Merry Christmas From Robert Michaels.

Some of the tunes fans will find on releases from Robert Michaels include "Seduction," "Forbidden Fruit," "Cupid's Dance," "Sunset Samba," and "Melania." ~ Charlotte Dillon, Rovi

Michaels is a truly gifted musical artist. His neuvo Flamenco is firey making you want to move with the music. At other times it's passionate and sexy . Neuvo flamenco moves the spirit and the soul!

Classical Gas is not the name of an artist it is a style of music. I believe there are some of you that may be a bit confused.

Don't read this because it actually works. You will get kissed on the nearest possible Friday by the love of your life. However if you do not post this to at least three songs you will die in 2 days. Now you've started reading this so don't stop. This is so scary put this on at least 5 songs in at least 143 minutes when if done press f6 and your lovers name will appear on the screen in big letters this is scary cuz it actually works.

I always forget how much I love Spanish guitar, until I hear it again...and fall in love with it all over again. Smooth sometimes, spicy usually! Picked up Robert Michaels on a Marc Antoine station. Nice job. Looking forward to hearing some of the others mentioned below (again).

Not bad, but I STILL prefer Rodrigo y Gabriela--no t actuality Flamenco per se, but so undeniably,, uniquely talented and original-- their couple of covers (i.e. Zepplin's Stairway, Metallica's Orion) shines above the originals. See them in concert, if you ever have a chance.
