Michael Brinkworth. More music than man. Berlin-based Australian folk troubadour Michael Brinkworth writes and sings in the tradition of the timeless greats.
Imagine The Band, Neil Young, Springsteen, Dylan and Waits all taking a road trip through the Australiana heartland, with Wilco and The Replacements on the stereo all along the way.
A tireless headliner across Europe, Australia and North America, Brinkworth’s backpack is stuffed full of heartfelt, road-worn songs. When he performs, he pulls us along on those journeys, down sparkling highways and into the deep night-time city.
Rhythmic country guitar, entrancing harmonica and a soulful voice combine to expose the rawness at the heart of the songwriting. Brinkworth does music the old way, the right way: vulnerable, sincere, and as honest as an old pair of traveller’s boots.
On November 1st, the first single from his upcoming album, One More Time (Just For Fun) comes out on all streaming platforms.
The full LP, Wasted Wonder, will follow in May 2020. It was recorded with his full band lineup at Berlin’s Famous Gold Watch Studios on the studio’s eponymous label.
Greywood Records released Brinkworth’s debut album Somewhere to Run From in 2017, described by Roadtracks as “fresh and relevant” and by Lie in the Sound as “intense but without pretension”.
