Here's what Amazon has to say about the Hot Aussie:

Michael Johns, the American Idol wonder from Down Under, offers a strong release for his first album. Don't take our word for it. Check out the entire album for yourself at the Amazon Listening Party.

Since audiences first caught a glimpse of the six-foot-plus Perth native on season 7 of American Idol, and heard the soulful grit of his unbounded voice, Johns has seen a life’s dream come true — he’s finally made a career of music on his own name and terms. Look no further than the 12 songs that make up Hold Back My Heart for proof.

Recorded in Los Angeles and produced by Dave Cobb (Shooter Jennings), Johns’ debut delivers blue-eyed-soul as it’s meant to be heard — devoid of the typical glossy veneer applied to most modern albums, but heavy on vibe. “I really wanted to do a Stax record,” says Johns. “That blues-country feel, it’s a very American sound that I was going for.” And with seasoned players (among them Fred Mandel, Elton John’s longtime piano man) laying down tracks in a live environment, Johns achieved just that in record time. The result: swelling strings accenting the delectable pop of the album’s first single, “Heart On My Sleeve,” the Van Morrison-meets-Joe Cocker jam that is “Fool’s Gold,” the drive-it-home horns on “Feeling Alright” and “Little Bear,” and an inspired cover of the Bee Gees’ classic “To Love Somebody.” “This record came from a very natural place and it was the easiest I’ve ever sang in the studio,” he explains. “‘Fool’s Gold,’ for instance, was 100 percent one take. I’ve never had that experience as an artist. It was a joy to do it.”
