Album Notes

“Michael Plater should be out there touring the world and releasing a revelatory new disc every year…we’re lucky to have him,” (Robert Brokenmouth, B-Side Magazine/I-94-Bar)

“The songs are ballads, stories and emotions…it’s almost as if the music is there to enhance the words, thoughts and ideas. Lyrics of introspection and observation accompanied by great chord combinations and that vocal, is what really holds my attention,” (Lindy Gordon, Feeling the Beat)

“Enigmatic Melbourne troubadour, Michael Plater…explores the dark corners of his inner world, wringing every last drop of fascination out of his gnarled guitar,” (P. Heggart, Americana Australia)
