First of all, why don't you introduce yourself to those of us who don't already know you?

 

My name is Woodson Michel, I am a music artist, music/movie writer, producer, actor. I am an Entertainer...

 

How would you describe your music to someone who has never heard a single tune of yours, and your musical influences?

 

My music is a blend of R'n'B, Pop, Urban, Hip Hop, Reggae, Contemporary, and Zouk. I do it all. There is no limit to what I can do, so I do it all.

 

Any current tunes of yours you want to especially promote?

 

Right now we are promoting my latest single Let Me Be ft. Sexy Beef (Bizzy Boy) - great song!!

 

As a songwriter, what do you draw inspiration from?

 




Everything! Relationships, feelings, my emotions, break-up to make up, struggles and all that.

 

What got you into making music in the first place, and did you receive any formal education on the subject?

 

Honestly, I wasn't into music, but my friends are very talented musicians, especially Marc Celestin (my producer), so after I finished high school & sports, I started hanging out with them in the studios and seeing how they work, and I have been falling in love with music since.

 

As far as I know, you started your music career with a band called Lowkey. What can you tell us about your days with the band, and why was it disbanded eventually?

 

I started solo first for a short period, when a friend Ralph G, and Maurice Hampton and I said we would have a great chance together to make it, so we did that. It was some of the best times in my life, we toured together, and did some of my favorite songs together, those guys and I will always be connected, they are family. The reason for the dismantlement was because of the label we were signed to, Differences, the label was using and abusing us, not really doing anything to help us go further than we needed but forced us to go solo.

 

After being in a band, how hard/easy was the transition to being a solo artist?

 

The group really is like a team, we had some things we could do and others couldn't that was how we did to make sure everyone had a fair share. Being solo is good, I have no boundaries, nothing to stop me, I go with the feeling, and emotions of the time. Most of my shows I have Sexy Beef (Marc Celestin/producer) with me so we rock out like we are a group.

 

What's a typical Woodson-studio session like?

 

Fun! We honestly have fun, talk smack to each other and get the work done. It should be a TV show about Sexy Beef (Marc Celestin Jr) and I. Everyone says so, we work hard but also have fun.

 

What can you tell us about your live performances, and how much do you enjoy/not enjoy playing in front of an audience as opposed to recording in the studio?

 

I love the performance feeling. There is no better feeling than that, coming out to a crowd and rocking out to them. It's live you gotta duplicate and exceed what you did in the studio - every time. I love the studio cause I get to do new music, so I really like them both the same, without one there wouldn't be the other for me.

 

The Set-up

You have recently also starred in, co-written and produced the movie The Set-up. What is that one about?

 

Well, that was a short story I had in my mind I wanted to work on, it's based on what really can happen to someone. If you don't pay attention to detail, you might suffer consequences that you should not. Basically a girl friend being set up to use her boyfriend. I can't give it away yet, you have to wait and see the full movie when it's done.

 

What got The Set-up off the ground to begin with, what were your inspirations when writing it, and what can you tell us about the writing process?

 

Honestly I can't remember, I have so many things running around in my head that I can't remember anymore. I always got ideas in my head about movies and cartoons and stuff but I remember I was talking on set of my She Hot-video, I told Ken Schmidt about the idea. He was intrigued by it and wanted to work on it with me. We went back and forth about things and finally put things together. The writing style is just different, that's all I can say.

 

The Set-up

What can you tell us about your director Ken Schmidt, and what was your collaboration like?

 

Ken is a very good director, he has that talent & the for eye for it. That's why I was so excited to work with him, He showed that he can do it by the music videos he had directed. He sees things, he's able to adapt to situations. Our collaboration was just like the video, us having fun and handling business. He's a bright individual, and we will have more to come.

 

A few words about Woodson, the actor, and did you ever take any acting classes or the like? And what did you base your character on?

 

I am ambitious, if I want something I go hard for it. I believe hard work pays off. I am always creating something. I've never taken classes but I have acted to get out of situations, that's where my acting used to matter, the most.

 

Actors who inspire you?

 

Denzel Washington, Cuba Gooding Jr and Idris Elba are actors that inspire me to get to the level of acting I want to get to.

 

You have of course also appeared in quite a number of music videos of yours. How (if at all) does appearing in a music video differ from acting in an actual movie?

 

For a music video it's all body languages and facial expressions, no rehearsal or lines to remember in these videos, but in the future we will incorporate more acting into the music videos.

 

Any future projects you'd like to talk about (be it music, movies, whatever)?

 

We are actually finishing up the 2 new singles, Whatever and Killing Me, both featuring Bizzy Boy. Right now my 1st single Let Me Be has been getting a lot of attention hitting the digital radio tracker Top 200 chart at #148 last month, so we hope to keep it going. I have a couple of music videos and another trailer I am working on. so things will be coming
