We say Yes to Michael Nau !

Michael Nau has well and truly taken off since his departure from Page France and Cotton Jones.

His path has taken him to more folksy music. With his romantic crooner voice, he distinguishes himself in this mid-tempo alternative country with groovy tones. A melancholic poet, he juggles with emotions in the room of guitarist Benny Yurco, in Vermont, where Michael Nau & the Mighty Thread was recorded. No doubt, it is truly the sequel to Some Twist, his solo album from 2017.

The guitars perform in a humpback song with distortions that get lost into echos ( Can't Take One). Nau mixes with the worlds of Fred Neil, Tim Hardin or Richard Hawley. There’s no temporal marker here, but a blend of past, present and future. This songwriter with poetic phrasings even tries his hand at Southern soul for his last title Smudge. Is there anything better when you talk about love, memories and loneliness?
