EMPTY EYES is released worldwide on all digital platforms TODAY!

There are few things less tragic than witnessing a loved one fall apart.
Whether it’s a friend, parent or partner, seeing someone you love hold unimaginable burdens and lose a battle within themselves is heartbreaking. I wrote this song after my partner came to me with nothing more left to give to us or our relationship. I wanted to do everything in my power to help heal and protect them, but there was nothing more they wanted from me. I wrote Empty Eyes from that place. 

My new EP drops Friday, April 16th. Listen to Chapter 3, below. 💜

CRY FOR YOU is released worldwide on all digital platforms TODAY!

I wanted to provide a little more insight on the follow up to my lead single,

THE ONE THAT I CHOOSE. Last fall I was fresh out of a very serious relationship with someone I believed I’d be with for a very long time. Emotions were high and when I sat down to write, this chorus poured out of me. Days later I had my first meeting with music producer, SIXFOOT 5, and played him the chorus and two hours later, we had finished the song. I originally wrote CRY FOR YOU from my perspective, but as this entire project began to come together and I started writing more songs, I decided to create a loose narrative and needed to cast a love interest opposite me. I had seen Blaine Krauss in The Cher Show and Hamilton on Broadway and wanted to work with him for years. I knew this was the perfect project for us. I reached out and... voila! 

My new EP drops Friday, April 16th. Listen to Chapter 2, below. 💚

Michael has written an original song for Los Angeles based vocalist, Matt Bloyd.

Never Thought of Christmas appears on Bloyd's latest Holiday album, "Christmas Changes Everything."

The piece explores the idea of the narrator ending a relationship out of necessity, but never realizing how much they would reminisce and emotionally struggle around the holidays.

 

With music and lyrics by Mott, the song is produced by Aaron Aiken, mixed by Adrian Alvarado and mastered by Lucas Pimentel.
