Berlin-based Australian folk troubadour Michael Brinkworth writes and sings in the tradition of the timeless greats.
Imagine The Band, Neil Young, Bruce Springsteen, Bob Dylan and Tom 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.
Through late 2019 into early 2020, he's begun a steady release of singles from his upcoming album: One More Time (Just for Fun), Liguria,and Force of Nature. The fourth song and first stripped-back solo cut from the album, "Falling In Love With A Broken Heart" is out on April 3rd. The full LP, Wasted Wonder, is set for a September 2020 release. 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”.
