Today we’d like to introduce you to Micah Super.
Hi Micah, please kick things off for us with an introduction to yourself and your story.
My name is Micah Super. I’m an up-and-coming artist from Fairfax County, Virginia. In high school, I participated in musical theater and chorus. After high school, I took a gap year program (Up With People) to find out what I wanted to do in life, My passion has always been music, but I wanted to explore my options. After performing for the Pope in Italy and across the world in UWP, I knew I wanted to be an artist. Since returning home in 2018, I’ve opened and headlined for artists from L.A., Philadelphia, and Atlanta. Including organizing a music festival in D.C. for my debut EP, “Run.” I’ve been played on international radio stations while having blogs have write about my music too. Singles like “Elysian” and “cold” have been played on BMS Radio Chicago, EJazz Radio, and Radio 3S from France. Speedonthebeat, Tonspion, Hominis Canidae, Undergroundnproud, and Musicians are one of the many blogs that have written about my music.
We all face challenges, but looking back, would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
The music business is never an easy road. There were many times when people rejected my music. I had many friends and family turn their back on me at the beginning of my journey. Especially when I first started. No one wants to be there for the ride until you become a champion. Like sports, music is also competitive; if you aren’t marketing yourself and doing shows as much as possible, you will get lost. That took me some time to learn.
Thanks – so what else should our readers know about your work and what you’re currently focused on?
My work involves recording at the studio, photo shoots, getting my music in the press, doing shows, planning tours, shooting music videos, merch, marketing, etc. A couple of things I’m known for in my music are my shows, my cover art, and my music. I try to specialize in these three because this is what gets people’s attention in the music business. I’m proud of myself for staying consistent, especially show-wise. Even though I’ve headlined and opened up for a few artists, that also came with doing empty shows sometimes. People don’t understand, though, and sometimes you got to do the empty shows to get to the bigger one.
Do you have recommendations for books, apps, blogs, etc.?
No, unless for personal use or marketing-wise, I try to stay off my phone.
