John Michael Howell has been releasing music since 2019 but has begun to accumulate his listeners through TikTok. On his TikTok page @johnmichaelhowell, takes his viewers through his song making process. His most viewed video holds 6.5 million views and is him producing one of his recent releases, "The Villain," in Minecraft.
Since the beginning of 2023, he has self-released 20 singles with his most recent titled "Power." In this song he writes about someone dominating control over a relationship and all the doubts that arise from it. This is extremely prominent in the chorus:
"I can't say 'I love you' 'cause that would allow hеr
To control my heart like the wind to a flower
Blown by the breeze, tossed around as it scours
For someone who won't turn its love into power"
All of his songs are documented through his TikTok and are written surrounding the complicated feelings that come with love and understanding yourself. I enjoy his lyrics and the emotion he sings with in all of his releases. Some of my personal favorites of John Michael Howell are: Not Afraid To Bleed, Played Myself, and The Villain.
