Survivors (Acoustic Live from Jedediah Smith Redwood State Park)

September 6, 2018

Hey guys ,

Thought we’d chuck this one at you a day early …. Its the acoustic version of “survivors” filmed amongst the majestic redwoods of Northern California .

This was one of my favourite moments of the road trip . We got up super early ( which is why I look a bit knackered ….) and when we arrived at this sensational location we had the whole place to ourselves .

The sun was rising and shining down through these gigantic and magnificent trees and there was an amazing stillness and calm about the place (apart from the incredibly loud woodpecker that wouldn’t be quiet during recording …. So inconsiderate )

It was a morning that I will never forget and I feel privileged to have been able to play one of my songs in such a magical place .

As always , a huge thank you to Jarrad Seng Photography, Chris Vallejo and Stu Larsen for making this project possible .

Please share it around if you like it .

Thank you .

Mike xx

To Be Free (Acoustic Live)

August 17, 2018

Hey guys !

Hope you’re all doing really well !

Can’t believe its only two weeks till my new album comes out !!! Starting to feel pretty nervous / excited about it ….

In the meantime , here is the acoustic version of “to be free” ….

We filmed it outside an old farm in Wyoming as the sun was going down … a pretty lovely spot and a perfect setting to sing this song .

As always do feel free to pass it around 😉

Loads of love .
