Singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Michael Blackwell offers up his signature fusion of '90s grunge, '00s indie, and modern alt-pop on debut EP A Trip Around The Sun, a six-track collection of emotive anthems that span everything from passion to joy.
Led by warm guitars and textured beats that cushion alluring vocals, the EP is luscious yet gritty as perfectly encapsulated on lead single “Cold Water,” a thought-provoking musical odyssey on learning to deal with trauma and wash away pain to move forward in life.
Pairing his swirling vocals with a soft, slow-burn instrumental that culminates in a moment of distortion and beauty, the emotional but cinematic production showcases the intense and layered musicality he has honed across the EP.
Having spent the past few years working alongside the likes of Louis Tomlinson, Amber Run and Lewis Capaldi, the rising talent is poised to make a lasting impact in his solo journey.
