Kathy’s Song with Gregory Alan Isakov (Simon & Garfunkel Cover)

October 30, 2016

hello everyone !
sorry for the intrusion but i just wanted to share our new “sunday night video” with you .
its a little different this week – i gave the band a much needed day off 😉 and instead recruited this guy ….
for those of you that haven’t heard gregory alan isakov’s music please try to set a little time aside to do so . you won’t be disappointed !!!!
i first stumbled across him around three years ago and very quickly became an enormous fan . there is something about the way that he writes and delivers his songs that i find amazingly sincere and beautiful .
after every gig of the “whispers” world tour i would get back to my dressing room and put on his album . there was something really calming about it that allowed me to come down from the shows and it became a really nice and important part of the post gig ritual .
cut to a couple of years later and i’m lucky enough to call him a friend and watch his set every night before we go on 🙂 i love how these things work out ….. if you’re coming to any of the uk / european dates make sure you’re there in time for his set !!!
the song is (another) paul simon one …. sorry …. not his most famous and some of you may not know it but i think it is one of his very best moments . its called “kathy’s song” and i really hope you all enjoy it .
another change in formation see’s my good mate bryan dos reis take over from jarrad seng photography behind the camera . i am so lucky to be able to work with both of these talented and brilliant dudes . what a gorgeous bit of filming …..
i feel like such a broken record but if you feel like sharing it that would be amazing .
thank you so much for watching and for the amazing support .

Diamonds on the Soles of Her Shoes (Paul Simon cover)

October 23, 2016

Hey everyone !! Hope you’re all well !! I’ve been hibernating for a few days but looking forward to getting back on the road again this week 🙂  Here is our 4th “Sunday night video” and this week it comes in the form of a paul simon song ( it was bound to happen sooner or later ;-)) The song is called “diamonds on the soles of her shoes” and is from his graceland album which is one of my absolute all time favourites !! Jarrad Seng Photography shot it at the beautiful venue that we played in STOCKHOLM a little while ago …. Thank you in advance for watching and as ever please share It about if you can – it really makes a massive difference ! Loads of love . Mike xx

Can You Feel The Love Tonight

October 17, 2016

good evening everyone !!
hope you’re all having a delightful weekend 🙂
here is the third video in our “sunday night video” series .
this week’s comes from just outside of HELSINKI …. in the “forests of Finland” (which has a nice ring to it i think ;-))
I’m sure most of you will recognise the song …. its Elton John‘s “can you feel the love tonight”.
its just the sweetest song in the world and its been so much fun to play at gigs ….. turns out you’re never too old for disney !!!
please please please share it around as much as possible …. even if you don’t like the song …. do it for the squirrel …. and mufasa 😉
huge thanks to my wonderful band and crew (who almost froze to death in the making of this video) and to the insanely gifted Jarrad Seng Photography who just keeps getting better and better .
really hope you enjoy this one !!
