Michael Burrows – Turn this love around

When a talented and passionate singer/songwriter from Melbourne Australia by the name of Michael Burrows lands himself in a Nashville studio with some of the best country music players and producers in the world, a creative vision comes to light and a music masterpiece is born. Turn this love around is the second single released from the Michael Burrows debut EP and is a heartfelt and romantic song of love.

The track has a classic organic country sound mixed with that distinct Australian flavour and soul. The uplifting lyrics remind us that when our relationships get tough we can always put our problems or differences aside and turn things around for the better. It’s poetically sweet and creatively written in a way that warms our heart, the lyrics penetrate deep and have us singing along – long after the song is over.

The music arrangement is performed by a very talented band including Chris McHugh drummer for Keith Urban, Pat Buchanan guitar for Dolly Parton, Travis Tritt and B James Lowry guitar for Faith Hill, Jewel, Lee Ann Womack. This is Nashvilles A list of session players and the result is delightfully sweet allowing Burrows music and voice to shine, showing all its shades and colours. The chorus vocal is so beautifully harmonized that it lifts us up while adding a touch of sorrow that pulls on our heartstrings, it is real and connects to the listener on many levels.

Australian radio has already started lapping up this alt-country rock beauty with some big love coming from Triple M & The KIX Country network. ABC radio in Bundaberg, Queensland recently named Michael Burrows EP as Album of the Week so it is safe to say Turn this love around is getting the attention and recognition it deserves.

Michael Burrows – Please don’t cry

Listen to the song review here:

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.
