Siblings Sean and Sami Michelsen have been writing and performing music together for over a decade. When they created Alchemy in 2012, the duo set out to challenge many of the norms in the music industry, and began bending the rules of playing “genre specific" tunes. With an extremely diverse set list, The Michelsen” showcase their versatility and originality by adapting unique versions of songs from their favorite artists like David Bowie, Fleetwood Mac and Led Zeppelin, to The Weekend, Usher and Rhianna. Sami might even bust into a rap from Rae Sremmurd or Logic…
Sean and Sami perform as an acoustic duo and with a full band all over the SouthEast and specifically in Atlanta; it was during one of these performances that the two were spotted by a Producer for Sony Television, and Alchemy was written into Season 1 of the show, “POWERS”. Their singles, “Resistor” (as seen on POWERS), “Heartbeat” and “Moon Walker” are all aired regularly on radio stations that include 99X, Radio 105.7 and 97.1 The River. Sami and Sean are currently working on a new record which is due for release early next year.
As creative music makers in the 21st century, Alchemy presents a powerful selection of songs that stir the soul, a stage presence that is often described as mesmerizing, haunting and magnetic, and a fresh new energy that ignites a fire within the heart. The Michelsen’s continue to bend the rules, challenge the norm, and show the world that Alchemy is indeed the process of “refining the coarse and common into the rare and perfect…” and it sounds beautiful.
