Michael Muse, Walker Redd

Michael Muse embodies the best traditions of R&B and Soul music as a vocalist, songwriter and producer. His velvet voice is unique and mesmerizing, captivating audiences across the globe. It was inevitable that Michael Muse’s talent would capture the world since his gift was discovered at the age of five and since he is the son of the legendary New York Jazz Musician “Chuck Henley.”  A native Washingtonian, Muse started his professional career as the lead vocalist for Rare Essence at the ripe age of 16 and penned their second single release “Back Up Against The Wall” in 1983. Muse is also known in the DC music community as one of the most prolific vocalist in Go-Go history, paving the way for most vocalist in Go-Go today. Muse studied under the direction of Dr. Leroy Dorsey, who taught Donny Hathaway and Robert Flack at the historical Howard University. 

Thousands have been entranced by Michael Muse’s superb Falsetto and natural smooth tenor that make him an extraordinary balladeer. Now with the support of four close friends; Keith Busey (Bassist and former Music Director for The Stylistics), Marc Foster (Keyboardist), Larnell Carr (Percussionist), and Jocque Johnson (brother of the talented Meshell Ndegeocello on Guitar and musical arrangements), they are on a mission as a band to flood the airways with a unique smooth sound with a slight touch of homegrown Washington DC sound infused in the mix.
