Mike’s new EP ‘Paint’ has only just launched and clearly the BBC like what they hear!
Having uploaded the new tracks to the excellent BBC Introducing site – designed to provide exposure to the freshest unsigned artists across the UK – Mike was contacted by the folks at BBC Radio Lancashire to chat live on air with DJ Sean McGinty and introduce his lead single ‘Great Escape’ to the region.
It was the first time a track from the EP had ever been aired and having just returned from a few months travelling around Europe, Mike expressed his delight at being back on home soil to hit the ground running.
“I wrote all the tracks whilst busking around the continent and ended up finishing it off in the Austrian mountains, it was amazing.
“As soon as I got back I couldn’t wait to get in the studio and things just started slotting into place. I’m really blessed to be touring the EP on a sold-out tour with Lewis Watson.”
Sean McGinty’s show airs every Thursday from 8pm and you can ‘listen again’ online within seven days if you missed it first time around. The show provides a great platform for up and coming talent across Lancashire and Mike expressed his delight at being featured.
“It was a real honour for the EP to be recognised by BBC Introducing and have BBC Radio Lancashire play my song – I was buzzing! Everyone should tune in and hear some northern noise!”
