“A Truant and a Pirate” is the debut solo album from Michael John. Having had previous successes as a member of bands, The Marshals and Television Room, Michael John has since made a shift in direction to focus on his solo material.
“A Truant and a Pirate” is a much more stripped back affair than Michael John’s previous recordings, with an emphasis on simple acoustic folk songs. Opting for a home recording instead of working from a studio, the album is the product of a single microphone and Korg recording console. Mandolins, violins and cellos are introduced to add to the texture of the recording.
You can catch Michael John live in The Song Room, The Globe, Dublin 2 on Wednesday 1st December.
