At a recent sold out headline show at London’s The Betsey Trotwood, Michael was joined for the first time by his new backing band, Jack & Lily Wolter from Penelope Isles and Benjamin Woods from The Golden Dregs. Michael’s hushed, delicate folk songs where beautifully brought to life by his friends on stage, elevating his music to another level.
Released at the end of January, Something To Be Won is a four-song EP collection of sparse folk music that gently envelops those that find themselves sitting with it, with the two-song centrepiece of the EP's haunting title-track and the swirling 'End Is Near' perhaps the epitome of his craft.
With its gentle guitar and shadowy vocals, it feels only right that Something To Be Won is released in the heart of winter, these songs, barren and beguiling, are seemingly shaped as much by the dark spaces created in the crackling ambient backdrop, as the simple restraint learned from its musical influences.
