After releasing his stunning sophomore album Salt, which Atwood praised as “an achingly honest & heartfelt reckoning full of striking vulnerability & intensely intimate, beautiful songwriting.” Michael released his 3rd studio Album ‘How Come You Sleep’, recorded with Lucy Rose band member Andrew Stuart-Buttle during the first lockdown of 2020, & mixed by Oliver Baldwin (Aldous Harding, First Aid Kit). ‘How Come You Sleep resonates with soaring melodies & glistening string arrangements that add depth & colour. It weaves stirring wonders, a cathartic release of tension & visceral self-reflection.’ Atwood Magazine
