Following the news of her upcoming album Warriors on 14th April, Lisa Mitchell is pleased to announce details of a short run of UK and Irish shows in May.
Having already achieved Top Ten status in her native Australia, Warriors portrays a lightness of groove that hasn’t previously been a focus of Mitchell’s music and consequently mirrors a shift in both her listening habits and personal taste.
The Boys, narrating the literal experience of a typical summers day driving around Sydney with a group of male friends mourning the death of one of their dads, warm vocals ambling over a bed of skittering percussion. The track was added to the playlist of Australia’s highly influential Triple J national radio station, and ‘boysing’ – lip-synching to the song while laying on one’s front! - has become something of a viral phenomenon down under.
Michael Cassidy is a singer songwriter from Paisley who's music is best described as contemporary folk/pop. Michael sites a great variety of influences ranging from Folk heavyweights such as Richard Thompson and John Martyn to more contemporary acts such as Rufus Wainwright and Laura Marling. Michael is the inaugural winner of the Gerry Rafferty songwriting award with his song 'The men who stood beside me in the war'. Over the last couple of years Michael has also been invited over to North America to play at the CMW and NXNE festivals. As well as these festivals Michael has also traveled the length and breadth of the UK supporting established acts such as Ben Howard, Frightened Rabbit, Amy MacDonald, Stornoway, Martha Wainwright and John Grant. Michael released his debut album 'My Electric Heart' at the start of 2015 and is currently in the studio working on the follow up.
