SINGLES

Evening of the Summertime
Michael Henry Trio

If you're looking for a break from big-charting pop music, check out this debut EP from a young Sydney-based band. Singer Michael Henry's angelic voice lands somewhere between Jeff Buckley and Morrissey. A spanish-flavoured, sexy landscape of sounds.

Michael Henry Bio

Michael Henry is back in Sydney preparing to release his anticipated second full length album after six months of writing and playing shows in Berlin, Germany. The title track With You, was chosen for the Starving Kids Records Compilation, Have You Heard Volume 3, which is currently available as a free download at www.starvingkids.com.au

Previous releases Evening of the Summertime (EP) and At a Glance (LP) received rotation from BBC Radio1 (UK), FBI (SYD), ABC (NATIONAL AUS), 4ZZZ (BRIS, AUS) and The Pulse (VIC, AUS). In 2004, Evening Of The Summertime was named in the top five releases of the year by Clare Polanski, Tsunami editor and following the release of At A Glance, Michael Henry was in FBi's Top Ten unsigned acts of 2004.

With You, which is set for release in Australia in March, explores a range of different musical styles drawing on influences as diverse as Henry Mancini, Boards of Canada and Ween. While still guitar-based, the music crosses into genres including hip-hop, pop, electronica and TV/film. It is music that touches the heart of its listeners.

"With You is a heady, mysterious mix that's difficult to define, slowly revealing its understated brilliance to the listener". Fly Magazine, London

"You're gonna love this mellow-sounding Sydney-sider". Sarah Graham, Dolly Magazine, Sydney.
