“My friend Michael is my go to for streaming advice mainly because he comes from music and the music I like and not just a statistics type knowledge, but that special touch and feel for where a track can work well. His playlists are always put together in an organic way, not just strategy - they are solid musically. I have seen him grow from one playlist to a massive operation over the years.” - StoneBridge (Grammy nominated producer and remixer)

"Michael knows the streaming world extremely well and as an artist has a unique view on the sector too. With a proven track record of success this book is a must read for anyone interested in this space." - Kieron Donoghue (Founder of Humble Angel Records)

“What impresses me most about Michael is that his knowledge of the digital music world is born from a true love for music (unfortunately not always the case in the biz these days).  From both an artist and industry perspective, Michael always seems to be up on the trends and is always looking to find new ways to expose not only his groups music, but the music of other talented artists from around the world to wider audiences.  Beyond his clear expertise in the areas that he works, he also just happens to be a great person to deal with, talk to and collaborate with. Nothing but respect for his hustle and know how.” - Brian Delaney (Tommy Boy Records)

"It still amazes me how much Michael knows about the streaming world.. although it makes complete sense. He's constantly looking for new endeavors to expand his knowledge about the digital music sector. Whether it's curating a playlist network, growing his own artist profile, recording informational podcasts or speaking at conferences - Michael clearly has a keen eye for all things music. Over a few months time, i've been able to watch his own projects grow substantially - showcasing his ability to provide top-notch advice that holds value" - Ranya Khoury (Hits Magazine)
