THG Artist of the Week: Mikey Wax

by at . Comments

THG is excited to present our first-ever Artist of the Week.

Readers, agents and music reps often contact our site and ask us to promote their friends or clients. We've always heard them out, but didn't feel as though any of the recommendations were worthy of this feature... until now.

Meet Mikey Wax.

A New York native and Vanderbilt University graduate, Wax released his first album in November 2008. It debuted at number-46 on the iTunes U.S. top 100 pop albums chart.

Since then, Wax has released a six-song EP ("For Better or Worse") and opened for such acts as Howie Day, Ryan Cabrera, Graham Colton and Marcy Playground. His single "In Case I Go Again" was featured on an episode of The Ghost Whisperer last month.

Wax also released his third CD in April 2010. You can actually download it for free at We strongly urge readers to do so.

Wax will be performing in Boston and Philadelphia this summer. He's an artist on the rise, one people should keep their eyes (and ears, especially) on.

Take a listen to "In Case I Go Again" below and see if you agree.


I love your music! Don't change a thing! You have a special talent that most musicians would LOVE to have, and they would change their identity to get it. You shouldn't have to. You already have it! I can't wait to hear even more new stuff from you!


Great songs, great voice, awesome arrangements!
The sort of songs you'll hear over and over again and enjoy them more and more each time.
His album "The Traveler" is a real pearl!


for sure he'll conquer the world for his amazing voice! :)


Let me be the first to say that this man is simply amazing and blessed from above! He must be an angel sent to sing amongst us!
