Michael Brinkworth - Country Town

Michael Brinkworth - Country Town
Brisbane-born troubadour and inadvertent Berlin folk-scene stalwart, Michael Brinkworth, has developed a sound informed by the timeless songwriting greats. His backpack full of heart-felt road-worn songs have an originality, authenticity and candidness to match. Brinkworth earnestly takes the listener on a journey with his tasteful hybrid of rhythmic-finger-style guitar playing, entrancing melodic harmonica lines and deeply soulful voice combining a unique raw power and yearning but hopeful vulnerability, while his sincere heart-on-his-sleeves stage-presence and quite spontaneous set-choices make every concert a new experience.

After the best part of a decade spent transitioning from a hitch-hiking busker across 40-odd countries to a professional recording artist, collaborating in several other projects, self-releasing home-made EP/LP-length CDRs and playing hundreds of shows, Greywood Records released his debut album, "Somewhere To Run From", to great reviews in 2017. The highly-anticipated second album, with working-title, "Wasted Wonder, Wishful Thinking", recorded at Berlin's The Famous Gold Watch Studios, showcases the sound he has developed with his band is set for a mid-2019 release. He is currently on a 30+ date tour of Australia, living out of an old Toyota Hiace, about to launch a Kickstarter campaign to help get the new album out to the world.

About this track...

Country Town is an anthemic-driving-singalong-song bound to get stuck in your head on first listen. It perfectly introduces the central themes of Michael Brinkworth's debut, Somewhere To Run From. Through a hard-travelling-troubadours' eyes, concepts of what home is and the alienation of the city are juxtaposed with a desperate longing for and romanticisation of imagined simpler and familiar country origins.
