A little while ago, not many people outside of a small Scottish town had heard of singer songwriter Michael Forsyth. That changed when his second album ‘Stop For the World’ reached number one in the UK iTunes Singer Songwriter chart and began climbing the charts in America, Lithuania and Nepal with similar success, all through word of mouth.
For Michael Forsyth, its only ever been about the music. A prolific writer, he is already working on a follow up album to ‘Stop For the World’ and his new single ‘Escape the World’ is the first track to come from that. An anthemic and accomplished slice of indie pop mixed by celebrated LA based producer Danny Saber, ‘Escape the World’ is immediate in its appeal and looks set to further extend Michael’s evergrowing fan base as it picks up glowing reviews and playlistings around the world.
Michael cites his father Colin as his mentor and inspiration. It was Colin who first passed him a guitar and taught him how to play. The guitar soon became an identifying factor throughout the young musician’s hometown of Huntly, Aberdeenshire – “Michael Forsyth, the one that plays guitar?”
Michael spent his school years playing in bands with his friends, performing at charity events, singing outside the local supermarket, singing anywhere. His album is the culmination of years of work, perfecting his playing and putting all his spare time into creating this collection of songs, whether sitting at the kitchen table in his parents’ home, or in his garden watching his children at play. Putting pen to paper and letting the lyrics and melodies flow is Michael’s passion.
