What's Going On ... Still ...

by Michaux

We are so honored to have received a very special message from Janis Gaye, the wife of Marvin Gaye, and we are excited to share her moving tribute with you: “People who love Marvin Pentz Gaye Jr. need to check out this great artist called Michaux. I was doing a Google search and found Michaux and was completely blown away. He has done a bluesy, retro-style cover of Marvin’s What’s Going On album. It is not an imitation. It is an interpretation that we (the entire Gaye Family) love. The tracks are not overdone but they are powerful. His singing and music is organic, it’s beautiful and it touched me. I couldn’t not call and congratulate Michaux and tell him that he’s has done a tremendous job! This album was done with respect, love, honor and integrity. I’ve never had a reaction like this to anyone who has covered Marvin’s music. I can truly hear the love coming through Michaux’s music.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"This record makes me feel like Michaux and the band are in my living room giving me a private concert, a very intimate experience"

"Michaux truly makes me believe in what hes saying. His voice speaks to me and the message is right on time"

Like all of us, Michaux has been affected by what's going on in the world today. His new record, "Whats Going On ... Still ..." deals with all the same issues Marvin did 39 years ago. Interestingly, not much has changed. We still have perpetuating wars, lack of jobs, deadly oil spills, poverty all over the world and this makes us all want to holler, or at least it should.

This music was recorded LIVE in England using vintage microphones and analog tape. No retakes, no computer magic here. This is real musicians playing together the way musicians used to play together before digital and computers. Many years ago, musicians and singers played and sang together in a room all at the same time and the engineer captured these moments and froze them in time. These are some of your favorite Soul and Jazz records from the 60s and 70s.

This is the Michaux experience. Enjoy!
