A year lapsed. Small local markets and brewery performances became frequent, proving to be an invaluable experience for performing live and honing his song-writing prior to recording his debut EP Solace
in November 2016, later released late January 2017. Solace was tracked in 3 short days at Underground Studios in Perth, Western Australia, characterised by laid-back intricate fingerpicking, soulful vocals and upbeat foot-stomping grooves. Reaching a wide audience, particularly in the UK and Australia, ‘Home’ off the ‘Solace’ EP has since amassed over 360,000 plays in the last few months.
Since the release of ‘Solace’, Dunstan has covered much of the vastness of Western Australia, performing solo from the warmth of the northwest coral coast in Exmouth, to the raw southern coastal areas of Esperance and Denmark more recently. Michael is currently undertaking an Australian Tour to celebrate the arrival of the upcoming new EP 'Partly Cloudy', with Red Moon
being the first single from the forthcoming release.
