News

hello everyone , hope this finds you well !!

thank you all so much for the incredible response to whispers 2 and last weeks video ! i think it got more shares than any other video that we’ve released and i really do appreciate it . its so amazing to see you all get behind the charity aspect of the project so passionately and makes me really excited about what we can achieve together smile emoticon

here is the second little taster from the album .
the song is called “david” – i used to play it live all the time so some of you might remember it …. its about a guy that i met outside a hostel that i was staying at in glasgow a few years ago and its definitely one of my favourites from the new record .
once again a huge thank you to bryan dos reis (http://vimeo.com/bryandosreis) for his remarkable film making talent and patience .
really hope you like it and (sorry , i know I’m a broken record ….. ) please share it around if you can – it makes such a huge difference .
loads of love . mike x

hello everyone ,
so the big news is that in just under a month’s time i will be releasing my new record whispers 2

I’m so excited to get it out in to the world and for you guys to hear it !

the truth is i’ve been sitting on this album for ages as all of the songs were written and recorded at the same time as whispers which is the reason why it feels right to make it a follow up rather than a separate entity all together .

there are ten songs on the album (plus 6 bonus tracks if you get the deluxe edition … no pressure haha) and as i said , these songs have been around for a while so some of you might know a few of them already . i’ll post a full track list up and go in to more detail about all of this over the next few days ….

the most exciting thing that i need to tell you about is that i’ve teamed up with Unicef UK and i’m delighted to say that all of the profits , from every physical and digital sale of whispers two goes directly to helping malnourished kids in liberia. (please check out this link if you want to find out more www.unicef.org.uk )

hopefully this is a win win situation where you guys get a new passenger album and the money you spend on it goes to helping people who really need it !!

i’ll be releasing this record on my own label (black crow records) which is really exciting as it means that every penny of profit can go to where it is most needed .
if you’d like to you can preorder physical and digital copies from the webstore, amazon or iTunes

i was lucky enough to have the exceptionally talented bryan dos reis on the road with me for the european tour at the end of last year . in our spare time we went about making a few really simple videos for some of these new songs .
i’ll be posting one up every week from now until the release of the album to give you guys an idea of what to expect …..
this first one is called traveling alone . i hope you enjoy it / don’t cry too much ;-)

there is no marketing team or big record label behind this project so please , if you like the video and want to spread the word about what we’re doing , feel free to share this with as many people as possible !!

thank you all so much for reading , watching and listening .
loads of love .

hello everyone ,
the whispers world tour came to an end on sunday so i thought i’d post a little video that we made over the last few days in CAPE TOWN . i can’t quite believe how beautiful that city is .
SOUTH AFRICA has undoubtedly been one of the highlights and fantastic way to end this adventure !!!!
the whispers tour took me and some of my best friends around the world and i’ll never forget seeing such beautiful things with such incredible people .
the song is called “setting suns” and it felt like a fitting sentiment :)

thank you all so so much .

sorry i’ve been a bit quiet on here – we’ve had the most insane couple of days ….

firstly DURBAN on friday night was amazing !! it was so humid that i looked like i’d been in a swimming pool by the end of it but you guys were wicked !!

we then flew to JOHANNESBURG and i have to be honest , i’ve fallen in love with this city . the gig was mind-blowing and we’ve been made to feel so welcome here !! thanks so much to everyone who came down yesterday .

now on to a sold out CAPE TOWN for the last gig of the whispers tour …. its gonna get emotional !
