Hard work. Hardship. And a journey across “la frontera” far from family and home. It”s a story familiar to Mexican ears but this one sounds strikingly different. Michael Lynch has been wowing people with his powerful singing voice since he was a kid, but few in his hometown of Wheaton, Illinois imagined his musical journey would ever take him so far from home. In February of 2010, Michael packed up his possessions and made the long lonesome journey to Mexico to pursue his musical dreams in the Latin American industry.
While growing up in the American heartland, Michael spent seven summers working with an all-Mexican landscaping crew where he began to learn Spanish.
“While working during long and hot summer days, I fell in love with Spanish music,” says Michael. “My co-workers introduced me to everything from banda to reggaeton. They also taught me the value of perseverance and hard work and they inspire me every step of my journey.” Michael blended these new influences with his love of American pop artists such as his idol Justin Timberlake. He has been performing in English and Spanish ever since.
His diverse tastes and soulful voice have led him to solo in gospel choirs, master the stage in musicals and even serenade the public in the streets of many different cities. Michael is a graduate of the University of Iowa and also spent some time studying in Guanajuato, Mexico and Seville, Spain.
