Music is powerful; it can store memories for us – good and bad – so that we may call upon them at seemingly anytime. Michael Graff’s new single “History” is a testament to the power that music has when housing our most intimate memories – check it out on Spotify here: open.spotify.com/track/0FjboAqbMsdrh6FPKN14nq?si=c446a6b3188a4f5b&nd=1
An ethereal pop composition that houses the feelings of a beautiful night with a beautiful girl, “History” sees Michael Graff telling the tale of two Texas kids in LA, caught in a moment of magic.
“For me, music is a great way of capturing moments,” Graff reflects on the feeling of nostalgia. “Nothing takes you back to a time, place, and even a feeling quite like a song. In this instance, we were just a couple of Texas kids far away from home and, for some reason, it was magical.”
And it’s true; music has an uncanny ability to remind us of times long ago. “History” has all the right ingredients to drum up memories of Coldplay on the school bus, slow pop playlists under the stars – even that one song you dedicated to your ex back in 10th grade. Graff works his magic in this lyrical recounting of “that one night” with lyrics such as:
‘You wore those blue jeans / Hair pulled back, so I can see / That look in your eye like / Tonight is gonna be history…’
Michael Graff is an emerging recording artist from the United States. Finding his sense for music at a young age, Graff would often play piano at church, embedding a strong passion for the craft into young Graff. From there he took up learning more instruments adding guitar, bass, drums, and eventually vocals to his repertoire of talent.
Graff’s passion for music played a critical role in his life, allowing him to develop a sense of identity and direction. He has found music to be a therapeutic outlet, allowing him to express some of the deepest parts of himself.
All of this self-discovery and practice has led Graff down the path of pop music; renowned for his ability to fuse heavenly synth-dripped walls of electronic sound with pop-perfect melodies, he is currently in the midst of launching a new EP that showcases his uncanny ability to bend the boundaries of his genre, crafting a distinctly uplifting combination of pop and EDM.
Michael Graff aims to soon break into the mainstream with his unique brand of upbeat, motivational pop, so he can bring the same joy to as many other people that music has for him. Often finding himself being compared to artists like LAUV, The 1975, Coldplay, and Post Malone, his songs are inspiring, motivational, and explore a range of powerful emotions.
