ROAMING SOUL is the new studio album from Dublin-based pianist, singer and songwriter MICHAEL MACLENNAN. Due for release: JUNE 10TH, 2016.
Showcasing a love of Americana, soul music and classic song writing of the seventies era, ROAMING SOUL, produced by Gavin Glass, is an intimate and authentic collection ranging from gospel-tinged ‘On The Right Side Now’ to the Fleetwood Mac inspired, guitar-driven title track. Stand-out album closer ‘Old River’ was recorded at the legendary Sun Studio in Memphis, Tennessee, by Grammy-winning engineer Matt Ross-Spang (Jason Isbell, Anderson East). Watch the official video here - 'OLD RIVER - Live at Sun Studio, Memphis'.
Praised by producer Gavin Glass as “one of the greatest writers and musicians I’ve worked with”, MICHAEL MACLENNAN relocated to Ireland shortly after releasing his critically acclaimed debut album WOLVES in 2012. He has since established himself as one of Dublin’s most in-demand musicians performing on stage with Paul Brady, Declan O’Rourke, Mundy, Gavin James, Wallis Bird, Lisa Hannigan and Gavin Glass amongst many others.
