Taken from the debut EP “Turn this Love around”, our introduction to Michael Burrows is the first single “Please don’t cry” a brilliant delivery of folk, country-pop artistry.
Opening with a smooth blend of acoustic folk guitars we hear Burrows sing the story of a relationship coming to an end, delivered in an honest fashion that many listeners can relate to.
I picture Burrows sitting back comfortably on his lounge room sofa writing this track with words flowing in between sips of Aussie Ale, It has that vibe. And It has us singing along to the clever lyrics “The cover band have finished playing ‘the last goodbye’, so please don’t cry.”
Burrows voice seeps shades of Pat Monahan from the band Train with a touch of Australian soul you would expect in a Crowded House classic. The iconic country slide guitar is the icing on the cake and the result is sleek and not overdone in the least.
Produced by some of the finest in Australian folk, country production including Grammy-award winner Steve Marcantonio “Please don’t cry” has warmth and depth with a sound that sits comfortably amongst its contemporary folk rock counterparts, leaving the listener keen to hear more music from this emerging melodic storyteller.
