Michael Brunnock.
Singer, songwriter.

Michael Brunnock possesses an extraordinary voice, and his songs mine the profound. So it’s not surprising that David Byrne cast him to sing the role of an Irish musician on the brink of success whose voice guides Sean Penn through an emotional journey of self-discovery in This Must Be the Place (2012). The score by Byrne with lyrics by Will Oldham (Bonnie Prince Billy) called for a distinctive vocalist, which Brunnock is.

I’ve had a bit of a long walk in the dessert. I’ve been lying low on the promotion media front. Trying to put it in perspective. Trying to accept the turbulence I see and sometimes engage in, on social media and wondering how art fits in as an agent for positive change.

I’m commiting to getting The Casement work finished this year coming 2018. At the very least it will be a body of songs that mark moments in his life and realisations he had along the way. I’m glad now I didn’t push it.
