Born in Vienna and raised in Canada, Micah Barnes cut his teeth in the cabarets and jazz clubs of Toronto in his teen years, before joining The Nylons in 1989. Recording and touring as a member of the internationally celebrated A Capella group placed Micah firmly within the global music scene. Through managing a busy schedule of concerts and television appearances, Micah’s rich and soulful baritone was introduced to music fans around the world.
In his days since the Nylons, Micah has launched an active solo career, which included touring the USA with his international club hit “Welcome To My Head” - which placed #1 on the Billboard charts. His solo career also marked his long-awaited return to the jazz genre of his early years, resulting in a series of critically acclaimed recordings, including New York Stories (e-One Music). Micah has also shared the stage with a host of internationally renowned artists, including Molly Johnson & Jackie Richardson.
Micah’s latest release, 2020’s “Vegas Breeze” entered the jazz charts at #1. The music (including singles “When in Rome” and “End of a Love Affair”) transports listeners back to the days of the legendary Vegas showrooms, featuring songs first recorded by jazz luminaries Sammy Davis Jr., Tony Bennett, Nat King Cole, Mel Torme, and Peggy Lee.
At his home base in Toronto, Micah is a busy Vocal, Performance and Career Strategy Coach whose International clients include GRAMMY nominated J.P. Saxe and Emmy Award-winning Tatiana Maslany. To learn more about Micah Barnes’ Singer’s Playground visit: https://singersplayground.com
