There is nothing accidental about the musical magic created by Michael Behm. This seasoned songsmith and producer from British Columbia has diligently honed his songwriting skills, while retaining the passion that gives his music such potency. This all killer, no filler collection of songs is vivid testimony to that.
Behm is no stranger to the international music marketplace. His work has previously been licensed in Europe through Long Island Records, while Bandai Music released his Diary Of A Dreamer album in Japan, to very positive response. Writing trips to London, France, and Greece have helped spark his muse, and Michael stresses that “my music has a very European feel to it. I believe those territories are strong future markets for it.”
Such belief is bolstered by a review on https://www.tradebit.com, in which Swedish music journalist Par Winberg termed his music “well-produced smart power-pop in the same school as Owsley, Jellyfish, and The Grays. Michael Behm stands safe on his own two legs and I’m very impressed.”
Behm writes on the human condition with both compassion
and fresh insight. “What else is there in life but life?,” he muses on his choice of subject matter, and the universality of this approach is such that his material is rich in its potential for use by other artists.
“The songs I selected here are those that repeatedly get emotional responses from people when they are played,” he explains. “Typically, those who like heavier music respond to tracks with a more aggressive presentation, like ‘Heroin Song’ People that are into poppier stuff like ‘Accidental Magic,’ There are valuable life lessons to be learned in such Behm songs as the positive mantra of “High Power” the equivalent of a Zen koan, and one armed with an irresistibly catchy chorus.
Michael Behm is a songwriter and artist in it for the right reasons. His is a voice and a body of work that demands to be heard
