MICHAEL HEAD

 

Once described by the NME as a ‘lost genius and among the most gifted songwriters of his generation’, Michael Head is unquestionably a Liverpool legend. An effortless and deeply soulful songwriter, he formed his first band, The Pale Fountains, with his younger brother John in the early 1980s. After releasing two — at the time misunderstood —albums for Virgin, he formed his second band, Shack, in 1986, and despite various mishaps and episodes of bad luck, they managed to release five critically acclaimed albums including Waterpistol in 1995 and HMS Fable for London Records in 1999. In 1997 he released what is arguably his most acclaimed and accomplished album to date, The Magical World Of The Strands, under the name of Michael Head & The Strands. Since 2013 he has been writing and recording under the name of Michael Head & The Red Elastic band. He has so far released a couple of EPs, with an album planned in the summer of 2017 on Violette Records.

Michael Head will play on the Caught by the River stage.
