Michael Mott is a musical theatre composer/ lyricist and pop singer/ songwriter living in New York City. After enjoying a successful career performing in numerous Off-Broadway, regional and national touring shows, Mott shifted his focus to writing and was accepted into the BMI Lehman Engel Musical Theatre Writer’s Workshop. He has since been named one of Playbill’s “Contemporary Musical Theatre Songwriters You Should Know.” Michael’s debut album, Where The Sky Ends, is a compilation of his original theatre, jazz and pop music performed by some of the best singers on Broadway. The LP has been referred to as “a masterpiece” by BroadwayWorld and was released by Grammy Award winning label, Broadway Records. Where The Sky Ends: The Dance Remixes was released by the same label and spawned the popular dance track, “Gone (Julian Marsh Ethereal Mix),” which has surpassed 1 million streams on Spotify. In 2016 he composed a Christmas single for Broadway star, Laura Osnes, “Christmas, Will You Stay?” His follow up studio album, Abandoned Heart was released in 2017 by Broadway Records. This time, Mott took a much broader approach honing his voice and focusing on a more top 40 sound. Joined by some of Broadway, television and pop’s most celebrated talents, this record offers a variety of feel good pop, anthemic soul and introspective ballads.
Previous editions of “Michael Mott & Friends” have featured Laura Osnes, Jennifer Damiano, Orfeh, Sierra Boggess, Jenna Ushkowitz, Andy Mientus, Jay Armstrong Johnson, Adrienne Warren, Brian Justin Crum, Shayna Steele, James Snyder, Jackie Burns, Jason Gotay, Ryan Silverman and many others.
