Following his time with the a cappella act The Nylons, Micah Barnes has found his own voice, that of a highly personal singer/songwriter with a strong jazz sensibility. ”

— Montreal Mirror

Having cut his teeth in the cabarets and jazz clubs of Toronto while still a teenager Micah became a well-loved singer-songwriter on the Queen Street scene before joining The Nylons and touring the world. Recording with the A Capella Pop act brought Micah into the global music scene and landed him in Venice Beach, California where he launched a solo career touring the U.S.which led to his #1 international club hit "Welcome To My Head" and coverage in Rolling Stone Magazine as "an Indie artist to watch".

Returning to the jazz-oriented songwriting of his earlier years has resulted in a series of critically acclaimed solo recordings including his most recent "New York Stories", which saw Micah hit the top of the Jazz charts and launching a national tour in Canada.  Micah is currently recording a new album which will transport the listener back to the days of legendary Vegas showrooms when the hippest entertainers worked the strip featuring songs first recorded by Sammy Davis Jr, Tony Bennet, Nat King Cole, Mel Torme, Lena Horne and Frank Sinatra.
