I've discovered over the years that a lot of people really like my music.  The record companies couldn't care less about it.  But a lot of people do like it.  And I'm very grateful for that!

Hi everyone!

For those of you who don't know me, I'm Michael Heart. I'm an independent Pop/Rock singer-songwriter based in Los Angeles. I came to Hollywood 25 years ago with a dream (like everyone else who comes here). In all that time, after knocking on so many doors in this brutal business, sadly none of them have opened for me. At least not enough to make a real difference in my career.

Although I have worked with quite a few big names in the music business (Brandy, Will Smith, Jessica Simpson, Toto, Earth Wind & Fire, Natalie Cole, Phil Collins, etc), I was never given a real "break" - an opportunity to really fly on my own. When I occasionally played my songs to some of those big names, I received some major compliments and serious encouragement from them. "Keep rocking!", "Excellent work!", "You are amazing!", "Don't give up, you're gonna make it!" These are phrases I've been told time and time again.

I have independently released a handful of songs and low budget videos on YouTube. Some of them have been viewed a time or two. But once again, not quite enough to really kick my music career into high gear.

It's very hard to keep trying as an independent artist with zero support from a major record company. For starters, it takes financial support to keep recording music, shooting music videos, promoting your music, marketing, etc. I have done what I could on my own until now, but it sure is hard!

So I would like to ask for your help in reaching my full potential. By supporting this campaign, you would be giving an independent artist a chance to present his music to the world in a professional and effective manner.

With your much needed support, I will be able to record new songs and make new videos. By making a donation to help propel my music career, you would be making a huge difference!

Thank you for helping me make this happen. I truly appreciate it!

Best,
