Michel William is a Mozambican artist, guitarist, songwriter, and music producer.
He is inspired and influenced by many artists of different genres, falling mainly into reggae, ska, blues, funk and Marrabenta all of that combined makes his music flourish in a unique way.
Growing up he enjoyed hearing and interpreting songs from artists like James Blunt, Maroon 5, Tracy Chapman, Djavan, Caetano Veloso, Bob Marley, Michael Jackson, Natiruts, Avelino Mondlane just to name a few. He first started playing the piano around the age of ten but he only developed his songwriting skills when he started playing the guitar at 16 years old.
Although music and art, in general, were something his parents didn’t encourage because of the pressure society's preconceptions had on them, that was the only way he could find to ease his mind and express himself.
