""What’s Good in the Music Scene?... MikelParis ((keys and such with) O.A.R.)"

"...thanks for speaking with us today about playing with O.A.R. as well as your solo project. Good luck on the road this summer and we look forward to seeing you out there! " - Creative Solutions Music Promotions

"Rainmaker Artists"

"...I listened to his CD and was taken aback by his musicianship and a guitar playing style that is nothing less than magnificent. Tasteful, rhythmic, passionate and inventive are all adjectives that come to mind to describe Mikel's style of playing." - Randy Miller of Rainmaker Artists

"MikelParis in Keyboard magazine"

"Musical multi-tasker MikelParis anchors the exuberant rock of O.A.R." - Keyboard magazine


"...I listened to his CD and was taken aback by his musicianship and a guitar playing style that is nothing less than magnificent. Tasteful, rhythmic, passionate and inventive are all adjectives that come to mind to describe MikelParis's style of playing. MP, quite simply, is creating art that no other guitar player has dared to approached." - Randy Miller of Rainmaker Artists

"talented artist"

MikelParis offers up tracks of high-energy rock. I like his approach and style to every song; he knows how to get across a lyric and play that guitar (with drumming) and change the flow and atmosphere of a song in a moments notice.

“Move It” is a quick display of the artistry of guitar/drumming, it’s a short but effective jaunt that leaves you hanging on, wanting for more. “Fortunately” and “Flow” are equally effective numbers then he plays a Dylanesque tune called “Change It,” giving you yet another facet of his repertoire to digest. Paris manages to give you a good sample of his many talents.

I really like the sound of MikelParis and I look forward to hearing more from this talented artist soon. I have feeling there is a lot more great music to come from his corner of the world.

MikelParis has stepped up and introduced a brand new method of playing guitar that he calls “Guitar Drumming.” This innovative styling moves what might otherwise be classified as pop music into more progressive territory, challenging guitar players everywhere to stretch their creativity.
