Michael is a twice Arts Council Uk supported Anglo-French singer/songwriter who has travelled the world playing his music to anyone and everyone who will listen. Michael spent his childhood near Brighton and got his first guitar aged eight. In his teens, the songs soon started to flow.
It wasn’t long before the purity of his voice, the direct rawness of his writing and the sheer scope of his sound found his regular gigs and a devoted fanbase – one that only grew bigger and more in love with the release of his magnificent debut album Dust & Bone which was made while he lived in his van for two and a half years to fund the recording costs.

“I’ve been getting letters and messages throughout the year from people saying that my songs have got them through a very hard time, and I don’t know how to reply to them other than as if I’d known them my whole life.
That’s the way that I would do it. I hope that my music gives them as much as it’s given to me.” Supporters include Several plays on BBC Introducing London, Tom Robinson, Amazing Radio, Fresh On The Net and Record Of The Day, The Independent, Clash, Mahogany and many more, With over 3 Million Youtube streams and 500k catalogue streams, spend some time getting to know his catalogue of over 50 releases and Make sure you subscribe to Michael’s mailing list be the first to know about new releases and gigs.
