Nashville recording artist and songwriter Joe Michaels is best known for his raw pull no punches lyrics and his not afraid to get off the stage and party-with-the-crowd attitude. Raised on the outlaws of country music, Michaels draws his inspiration from the classics of the 70s, 80s, and 90s and modern outlaws such as Jamie Johnson, Chris Stapleton, and Tyler Childers. These influences create a unique brand that blends old and new into a dark whiskey haze of stories and sound. 

Beginning his musical pursuits after a successful career running his own chiropractic practice, Michaels relocated to Nashville from Colorado and has gone on to become an in-demand live performer, playing at numerous downtown venues and during CMA Music Fest and the Music City Grand Prix event and has headlined charity events for the non-profit veteran's charity Forgotten Coast K9. Michaels has also appeared on such iconic stages as Story Tellers Farm (Johnny and June Cash's Farm), The Troubadour, The Grand Ol' Opry Pavillions, and many of the well-known Nashville Honkey Tonks to name a few. Michaels has also been a guest on several music podcasts including Music Crush Monday and B4Nashville.
