From a young age, Michael Schwalbe was active in a variety of dramatic and vocal pursuits, participating in multiple plays and competing in theater-in-the-round performance contests in high school. Skill with his voice and his writing led to a direct admission into the prestigious University of Missouri School of Journalism for Broadcast, where he not only continued to hone his speaking craft, but also discovered a passion for singing. After two years of performing excellence with a number of classical, jazz, and contemporary ensembles, Michael left the world of Broadcast and followed his vocal passions to Nashville, enrolling in, and ultimately graduating magna cum laude from, the Belmont University Music Business program.
Soon after graduation, he secured a full-time job in Print Sales/Customer Service with the Christian label division of Warner Music Group, Word Music. Michael’s vocal and dramatic talents also quickly gained the notice of the Warner Music Nashville Media Development team, and additional opportunities started opening up. A corporate IVR for the Word Music phone system was recorded using his voice. Two ACM promotional videos for Hunter Hayes were recorded, featuring voice overdubs by Michael, and he acted a side role on camera in a third. By the time Blake Shelton’s team asked him to do the voice for Blake’s 2013 CMA promotional mailers and promotional video, it was clear that this was becoming more than just a hobby on the side.
Now, Michael has worked with clients in 27 countries, and regardless of the product, service, or business you may have, his flexible and dynamic voice can bring it life and personality.
