Michael Barnum’s music is a foray into exploring what it means to be real. At its core, ‘Breaking Habits’ is his most vulnerable work to date, and he’s stepped outside of his comfort zone in order to push out his debut EP.
With influences that range from Pop, RnB and Soul, ‘Breaking Habits’ takes Pop frameworks and reinvigorates them with throwback Soul vibes. For Michael, it’s not so much about reinventing the wheel, but staying true to yourself, and this record captures the essence of integrity and authenticity.
One element that makes music so powerful is its profound ability to bring joy and evoke positivity, and its Michael’s belief that everyone has a story worth sharing. ‘Breaking Habits’ just happens to be that -- a collection of chapters from his personal diary up until today.
