"Canada's Best Male Vocalist",
Richard Ryder, Proud FM.
Jazz, Cabaret & Pop singer Micah Barnes has found audiences and critics responding to his latest release "Domesticated" with words of praise. "“Micah Barnes of Toronto used to be in The Nylons, so you know he can sing. It turns out he can also write brilliant blue-eyed soul, centered around his piano and of course, the voice. He's had a long recording, performing career, and has become known by insiders as one of the great talents in the country. His six-track EP Domesticated, is joyful and polished. It's ear candy, Top 40 for sure, but the kind even the most cynical punk or shoe-gazing indie fan can acknowledge as expert-league” Bob Mersereau CBC Radio.
Known for his powerhouse singing, entertaining stage presence and acclaimed songwriting Micah Barnes has returned to his first love, the intimate Cabaret Concert. Following the success of "The Domesticated Tour", Micah is performing "THE RULES OF ROMANCE" in a series of solo shows celebrating the joys of falling in love and the complications of relationships. Drawing on both classic Jazz & R&B material, Nylons favorites and his own songs Micah's solo shows have always presented this artist in his most honest and entertaining context.
