Mike Elrington is a gifted singer songwriter with incredible guitar skills. Standing at almost two metres tall, delivering his signature, gut-wrenching vocals like an instrument all on its own, very few people forget a performance from this man. The commitment to his live shows and the well-earned reputation for leaving nothing behind but sweat has seen him invited to perform at some of Australia’s finest festivals, including the iconic Byron Bay BluesFest, Bendigo, Sydney Blues and Roots Festivals & Blues on Broadbeach to name but a few.
2016 proved to be the the best year of his career to date. Racking up 132 shows all over the world, signing international publishing & management deals, receiving national airplay on Australian TV institution Neighbours (with his songs Believe & Still In Love With You), debuting at No.3 on the National Blues/Roots airplay charts with his recent album, playing supports for some of Australia’s most iconic acts(Russell Morris, Diesel, Jeff Lang & Black Sorrows to name a few) and taking out the prestigious Singer/Songwriter Of The Year gong at The Australian Independent Music Awards in Sydney.
In April 2016, Mike and a whole bunch of special guests including; Roderick McLeod on Drums, June Harrison on Backing Vocals, Sarah Busuttil on Violin, Silas Palmer on Keys and Chris Wilson on Harp/Vocals, performed at The Saucer for his ‘Two Lucky Stars’ album launch. A gig that saw Elrington dig deep with trademark raw passion and a no-holds barred honesty, delivering listeners a heartfelt and eclectic mix of blues, roots, folk & swamp-rock. The launch was recorded & filmed and as a result, this gig will be the very first show & official launch for the new CD/DVD double limited-edition release!
Come experience this gutsy, raw musician with his powerhouse line-up of supporting musicians live in action at The Saucer this coming May!
