Mike Schiavo is a 21-year-old singer/songwriter raised in Colonia, New Jersey. Initially inspired by Elvis Presley, Schiavo started to perform in 2010 and thrived off of his inspiration and passion for music to find his own voice, playing acoustic driven pop-rock songs. His style of urban pop began stealing hearts all over the world through Youtube where his channel has received over half a million views. Mike's hard work and talent led him to Los Angeles to chase his dream and eventually, the stage of NBC's Emmy-winning show 'The Voice' on Season 10, where he quickly caught the attention of Grammy award winning artists Adam Levine, Pharrell Williams & Blake Shelton with his rendition of 'Talking Body' by Tove Lo. Schiavo also received praise & support after the shows airing from Tove Lo herself. He landed on Team Adam after a spontaneous duet with Adam Levine singing Maroon 5 classic 'She Will Be Loved'. He became a quick favorite of the shows fans, with his audition video just crossing 3 million views on YouTube and his full iTunes recording spending over a week on the Top 150 iTunes Pop Charts.
Washington DC native Owen Danoff wrote and recorded his first song - complete with drums, bass, guitar, and piano - at age fifteen. Since then he has graduated Berklee College of Music with a degree in Film Scoring, released an EP and a full-length album, and performed in multiple states and venues across the country.
In the DC area alone Owen has performed at nearly every major venue including the Birchmere and the 9:30 club, been selected as a Strathmore Artist in Residence, won three Washington Area Music Awards (pop/rock vocalist 2104, pop/rock album 2014 for Twelve Stories, pop/rock instrumentalist 2014), and the first Bernard/Ebb Songwriting Awards Grand Prize. Additionally, he has been mentioned multiple times in national media outlets such as the Washington Post, the Huffington Post, and the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.
Elements of Owen's music have been likened to that of Paul Simon, Harry Nilsson, John Mayer, and the Wallflowers, among others – though the end result is all his own. Growing up listening to rock and roll bands such as Green Day before discovering a love of folk and singer/songwriter music, Owen's music boasts a current of energy as well as catchy melodies and a definite lyrical emphasis.
Owen's first full-length album Twelve Stories is a testament to both his songwriting and instrumental abilities. Released in May 2014, Twelve Stories features Owen on both bass and guitar alongside a band that includes guest musicians such as Rami Jaffee and Chris Shiflett of the Foo Fighters.
In August of 2015, Owen released his award-winning song "No Such Thing" (American Songwriter Magazine Lyric Writing Contest first prize) as a single on iTunes.
Owen was recently nominated for another Washington Area Music Award (Pop/rock vocalist 2015) and is a contestant on Season 10 of NBC's The Voice, currently working with Adam Levine.
