Michael “T-Mic” Pereira is a rare creative force with a sound that springs from the crossroads of HipHop, PopRock and Progressive dance beats. As T-Mic explored his musical talent he had a true passion for hiphop that held him actively writing lyrics by seven years old. At this stage his artistic inspirations were 50 Cent and Eminem, he vividly recalls free styling to their beats and creating his own lyrics.
Born in Miami, FL, T-Mic had a natural inclination to music that had him experimenting and recording songs with a computer microphone out of his closet at an early age of 11. Raised in an impoverished part of the city known as Allapattah, where drugs and crime were all taking center stage; T-Mic found his refuge in his music and faith meanwhile he saw how his peers chose the wrong path in life. Today, T-Mic’s lyrics and music are heavily influenced by these elements, which in turn have aided him in cultivating his own style. Without having formal training, T-Mic’s talent is simply impressive; his singing/rapping is unique and his style was born from years of studying his musical inspirations.
In 2010, T-Mic found a mentor in Cristian Fernandez, a long time family friend and neighbor whom he calls “Uncle Cris”. He makes name of him in his songs and continues to thank him for his guidance and faith in his talent. This partnership created T-Mic’s artistic name, musical beats, profound lyrics and contacts within the industry.
Today, at a young age of 16, T-Mic aspires to become an artist whose music will sustain years of musical evolution with loyal fans that would support his music album after album. T-Mic attends Jackson Senior High School where he from time to time performs at Pep Rallys and school functions with tracks recorded and produced from his own room - this time upgrading to a USB Microphone with a pop filter for a much crisper and clearer sound. T-Mic’s limited access to professional equipment and resources has served him as a tool in mastering a very impressive skill - the recording of a full track in one take.
T-Mic has really focused his efforts in marketing himself and promoting his talent to local music producers, engineers, record labels and investors, all of which have been impressed by T-Mic’s talent, drive and dedication, particularly at such a young age.
T-Mic’s most recent accomplishments consist of having recorded his first three professionally mastered and engineered tracks; “Drop it for Me,” “Tonight, Tonight”, and “Take Me Away.” He is currently working with Jimmy James of Mannequin Boy Records. “Drop it for me” received 21,000 hits on You Tube within three weeks of being posted, only motivating T-Mic to continue devoting his time and hard work in conquering his dreams. He continues challenging himself and studying music from all genres which in turns helps him in creating his own flow and artistic style.
