Michael Simic (AKA Mikelangelo)

Fri 28 May

One of Australia’s most compelling performers launches his solo album.

Stepping out from behind his Mikelangelo persona, Michael Simic launches his debut solo album, Caravan Songs. This collection of songs, his 15th album, encompasses an emotional scope we haven’t yet heard from the singer. Trading touring for fatherhood has led to a greater vulnerability in his songs, and a magnified ability to speak his truth and to laugh at his own foibles.

Simic will be joined by his three-piece band, including local artists Linsday McDougall (Frenzal Rhomb) and Kay Proudlove.

Based in the village of Majors Creek in NSW, Simic has toured festivals, theatres and music venues nationally and internationally to widespread critical acclaim both as a solo performer, and with his long-term band Mikelangelo and the Black Sea Gentlemen, who celebrate their 20th anniversary this year.

Support – Isy Cappo
Isy Cappo is a remarkably gifted 16-year-old singer-songwriter from Goulburn, touring her latest single Peach Tree. Isy was 14 when her first song release Spark was launched getting her song into the top 12 in the International Unsigned Only competition teens category. In addition to a support act, Isy will provide backing vocals for Michael.

A note about the venue:
Please note that while we are operating in accordance with the NSW Public Health order, and at reduced capacities, The Music Lounge is a smaller, more intimate venue, and the audience is seated close together.
