About the Event

The simplest of things can be most effective. Michael’s music is sparse, skeletal yet often deeply moving” – Mahogany

After releasing his stunning sophomore album Salt, which Atwood praised as “an achingly honest & heartfelt reckoning full of striking vulnerability & intensely intimate, beautiful songwriting.” Michael released his 3rd studio Album ‘How Come You Sleep’, recorded with Lucy Rose band member Andrew Stuart-Buttle during the first lockdown of 2020, & mixed by Oliver Baldwin (Aldous Harding, First Aid Kit). ‘How Come You Sleep resonates with soaring melodies & glistening string arrangements that add depth & colour.

It weaves stirring wonders, a cathartic release of tension & visceral self-reflection.’ Atwood Magazine

After Completing a self produced covers EP Michael is now gearing up to release his 4th studio Album, produced & recorded with Luke Potashnick (Gabrielle Aplin, Alberta Cross, Tom The Lion) at the renowned Wool Hall Studios (Van Morrison, Tears For Fears). Previously playing with a 6 piece band of multi-instrumentalists, Michael has adapted his sound & now plays in a trio. Michael on guitar, keys and harmonica, backed by Alfie Weedon on double bass, with Andrew Stuart-Buttle on violin, mandolin, synths & drum machines. The trio frequently lean into the possibilities of their set up with songs featuring shimmering electronic chords and drones, and occasional bursts of controlled feedback or skittering drum patterns.
