Back home from Europe! What an incredible trip. Many thanks to Michael Bentele and Magnetic Music for the amazing experience. Much gratitude to the good people of Germany and Switzerland who came out to support this tour.
I’m happy to be home though, and looking forward to finishing the new record and playing in states again...including a 2020 show at New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival.
See you guys soon!
We are excited to announce that we have started work on a new album. No release date is set, we are still in the early stages...but the process has begun.
This project is a look at the roots of MJN's music...and is looking like possibly the first official 'Blues and Roots'' album that Michael Juan has done.
The hope is to have the album done by the end of summer. Let's see how that goes!
Stay with us for updates!
Thanks to everyone who showed so much support for the 'SING IT' The David Egan Songbook tour. It was happily a huge success. MJN was grateful to be part of such a star studded, talent packed cast, that brought many of David's song to life again
As a songwriter David Egan was truly a treasure, pinning material for people like Irma Thomas (who joined us at Tipitina's in New Orleans), Tab Benoit, Marc Broussard, Joe Cocker, Etta James, C.C. Adcock, Solomon Burke, Percy Sledge, Marcia Ball (who played piano and sang for all of the dates), John Mayall, The Fabulous Thunderbirds and the list goes on and on....
As a person David was kind, curious, professional, and always nurturing. He mentored MJN as a songwriter, as well as MANY other younger songwriters he came in contact with. Always willing to share what he learned along the way. He was good friend, whom we all miss.
A special shout should go to Todd Mouton and C.C. Adcock for their work in putting a circus like that together and for making it actually work!
The musicians that played read like a who's who of south Louisiana's best musicians...not to mention to talent that was asked and wanted to be there but simply couldn't because of prior engagements.
photo's coming soon.

Here's what people are saying about it
Check Out "Rumble And Sway" from Jamie N Commons. The song "Rumble And Sway" produced in part by C.C. Adcock features Micahel Juan on slide guitar. The song has a cool throw back vibe, but is very much modern. Tune in Jamie is blowing up, I'm sure you'll hear this song sooner or later.
Congratulations to Jamie, and C.C. for a job well done.
