Back In the Artist Spotlight with his new song “Brightest Star”
More about Michael Burrows
Michael Burrows is an Australian singer/songwriter. He has recorded his original songs with Neil Finn (Crowded House) and supported Martha Wainwright on a run of her solo shows in Australia.
Michael’s music has been described as a fusion of folk, Americana and rock with hints of artists such as The Beatles, Wilco, Eagles and Ron Sexsmith. From intimate solo shows to full band performances, his songs are deceptively simple about complex things: love, family, home, and trust.
Most recently he has been co-writing with Grammy-award winning artist Frank Myers who penned I Swear (John Michael Montgomery’s version was #1 for 4 weeks on the Country charts. All 4 One’s version was #1 on the Pop charts for 11 weeks). Other Myers hits include I’m Already There’ and My Front Porch Looking In (Lonestar) and ‘You and I’ (Crystal Gale/ Eddie Rabbitt).
Michael recently returned from recording new tracks in Nashville at famed Ocean Way Studios. In addition to Frank Myers, he was produced by Jimmy Nichols (former musical director for Faith Hill and Reba McEntire) and engineered/mixed by (also Grammy-award winner), Steve Marcantonio whose credentials include John Lennon, J. Geils, George Strait, Alabama and recently Thomas Rhett, Taylor Swift and StevenTyler. The songs became Michael’s new EP ‘Turn This Love Around’.
Based in Melbourne, Australia, Michael also produces music for ads on TV and radio.
