Pouring his heart and soul into every sinew of these songs, the feeling of sheer honesty, belonging and serenity that many say are Michael’s hallmark, are constantly demonstrated throughout this Album.
Clash Music Magazine ‘The simplest of things can be most effective. Michael’s music is sparse, skeletal yet often deeply moving.’

All this whilst living on the road in a camper van and busking to making a living.
