Atlanta, GA
Tell us a little about your background...
A native of Jackson, Mississippi, Michael grew up listening to his mother sing with the Mississippi Mass Choir and accompanying her at church on Sunday
mornings. His father was also a tenor saxophonist, and really influenced Michael's appreciation of 1960's and 70's soul music. At the same time, young Burton was building his own collection of hip hop and jazz recordings. These influences have had a profound effect on his approach to improvisation and composition.

Michael received his Bachelor and Master of Music degrees in jazz studies, from Indiana University, where he studied with David Baker.

Michael has performed with Young Jeezy, Timbaland, Keisha Cole, Kim Burrell, Robin Thicke, Dead Prez, Bone Crusher, Angie Stone, Janelle Monae, N' Dambi, Mary Mary, Kirk Whalum, Chuck Brown, Mike Phillips, Jeff Bradshaw, Freddie Jackson, Gloria Gaynor, Russell Gunn, Omar, Nick Colione, Marcus Johnson, Victor Goines, Byron Cage, the Mississippi Mass Choir, and a host of others.

Michael has recorded with Polow Da Don, Fergie, Hidden Beach Recordings "Unwrapped Volume 5.0," Ann Nesby "In The Spirit," PJ Morton "Emotions, special edition," Marcus Johnson "Just Doin What I Do," Alyson Williams "It's About Time," Bill Banfield "Striking Balance, and The Mississippi Mass Choir "Amazing Love," just to name a few.

He has also toured with Jill Scott, Anita Baker, Tyler Perry's "Madea Goes To Jail," Tyler Perry's "What's Done In The Dark," New Edition, Johnta Austin, Soul artist PJ Morton, and with Blues singer Willie Clayton. He played sax and keys for Tyler Perry's stage play "Why Did I Get Married." You can see (as well as hear) Michael play in the motion picture, Tyler Perry's "Madea's Family Reunion." While he was touring with "Madea," Michael had the honor of playing behind Prince, Patti Labelle, Jennifer Holiday, and Chaka Khan.

Michael has appeared on The Tonight Show, Ellen, Jimmy Kimmel, TV One, and BET Jazz, performing on the popular show Studio Jams alongside pianist Bobby Lyle. Burton has also written and/ or produced songs for Alex Bugnon, Terrell Carter, Christian Keyes, Chandra Currelley, and Melvin Miller. Mike is currently touring with Mary J. Blige.

Hi Mike,

Love your sound... you make me think of Gerald Albright. I hope you don't mind the reference. You have an "ole soul" sound that's solid. I love it.
Thanks for letting me listen.

"Even the smallest light can make a difference in the darkest night."

So Shine On, friend...

Jaijai, what a wonderful mission you've undertaken to create such a place for artistic minds to meet and share their hearts. A place to renew faded determinations, and revive lessened momentums. A place to display our wares and reconfirm to one another that we actually are on the right track.

I commend you, Jaijai, for caring so much that you created this castle of the heart for all of us. I want to share my praise for all of the new friends as well as old friends that I've met and will meet here in our castle. Here we can garnish the where-with-all, the strength, the conviction, and the selflessness through our symbiosis, to share our gift to the world with an unbiased agenda.

My mentor, Daisaku Ikeda says of art: "A beautiful flower delights and refreshes the hearts of all people equally, no matter what soil it grows in. That is the power of beauty. The same is true of great art. It is this spirit that the German poet Heinrich Heine sang of when he wrote that once the peapod bursts open, the sugar peas inside are for everyone to enjoy."

Let's be audacious, my friends!
