POP SINGER-SONGWRITER MICHAL LEAH RELEASES POWERFUL BALLAD “USED TO IT”
December 16, 2022 BY Jason Currell
Multi-instrumentalist and Chicago native Michal Leah releases a powerful new single “Used To It” via Nettwerk. This is the pop singer-songwriter’s latest release since dropping her viral track “The Way I Love You.” She also announces her debut project titled part one coming in February.
“part one is just that, the start. I have a lot of growing to do and have had a lot of growth in this last year. I wanted to make sure I didn’t skip any parts, I wanted everyone to be able to experience all the parts of my journey, even the ones I feel I’ve graduated from,” says Michal of her upcoming project.
She continues, “I’m so excited for what’s to come, and I know it wouldn’t exist without where I started. Releasing my first cohesive body of music is one of the greatest honors of my life to date – I’m writing it in bold marker on my timeline. To try to sum up what this project means to me in a short paragraph would be silly because I know it can’t be done, all i know is I’m so grateful for where I am and so excited for where I’m headed.”
Both “Used To It” and her viral track “The Way I Love You” will be on Michal’s debut project part one releasing in early February.
Michal describes her new single “Used To It,” “I think it’s so important to realize that sometimes healing takes time and just because you feel healed from a heartbreak, doesn’t mean you are over that person. There is no step-by-step guidebook to getting over a breakup. I want people to listen to this song and know that they aren’t alone.”
The powerful ballad further exemplifies Michal’s ability to make even the most painful feelings eloquently beautiful with her flowing melodies and relatable lyrics.
Although just the beginning of her career, 2023 is shaping up to be Michal’s breakout year.

Michal Leah might be only 19 years old, but the Chicago-born soul-pop songwriter and multi-instrumentalist sings with the wisdom, range, and intuition of an artist with decades’ more experience. Born to a highly musical family, the first-generation American singer grew up listening to a range of artists, both classic and contemporary: Aretha Franklin, Frank Sinatra, Daniel Caesar, and Billie Eilish.
Since growing her reach on TikTok, where hundreds of thousands of followers connect with Michal’s gentle and vulnerable compositions on a daily basis, she has spent the last couple of years flying to and from Nashville (plus doing Zoom sessions) penning new material with songwriters such as Andrew Tufano, Stephen Barnes, and Tofer Brown, among others. Her Nettwerk debut “The Way I Love You” has garnered over 190 million listens on its Tik Tok sound, charted on Spotify’s Viral 50 chart in 11 countries, and gained recognition from Meghan Trainor, Lauren Spencer Smith, and more. Her debut project part one releases in early February and features the viral track. Recently, she hit the road on her first major tour opening for Eloise. Between the tour and plans to release at least two more new studio projects, Michal is most definitely a superstar on the rise.
