Maryland musician Michael Nau is a pretty unassuming guy.
Yet, in his plaid shirt – and with the requisite indie rocker beard — he played a set of new songs that completely washed over us with their smooth 70’s vibes. It was a perfect fit for a rainy day, but good for any weather.
Best known as the frontman for Page France and Cotton Jones, he recently started releasing solo work under his own name with a full length called “Some Twist” due this summer on Suicide Squeeze. He premiered FOUR new songs from that release.
“I Root” was among them and his manager whispered in my ear during soundcheck that Michael thinks it might be his favorite track he’s ever written.
He also played “Love Survive”, a song that is currently available on the European pressing of his solo debut “Mowing” and has been a favorite on our airwaves since last year.
We hear Michael is contemplating a move to LA so I’d like to formally – and publicly – invite him to take the leap!
