Hello everyone !! Hope things are good with all of you … Here is the very last video from the runaway series !!! Number 28 I believe ….. its been quite a journey and I am so so thankful to all of you who have come along for the ride :-) one last massive thank you also to @jarradseng , @stularsen and @linearchris for helping me bring this ridiculously ambitious project to life !!!!!! This final one is “lets go” and its a big mashup / montage of the entire road trip . It was all shot on an old super8 camera that @jarradseng borrowed for the trip . The idea was that we would have it lying around and it would be up to all four of us to pick it up every now and then and film a load of little snapshots of our adventure . The thing is , unless you’re an expert its very difficult to know if the thing is actually working or not so we had no idea if we were doing it right and if there would be anything to show for it all at the end …. Luckily it did work and the video below is the result . It feels like a very long time ago now that we were cavorting around America filming all of this . So much has happened since . I’d like to sincerely thank all of you that have bought / streamed / watched / shared and listened to the album . The love has been phenomenal . Also to the thousands of you that came along to the shows - thank you for supporting me and my music and for making the gigs so special . Thank you also to my wonderful touring family - thomas , chris , simon , Ian and Roxy and also my management team - dan , rebekah , Fran and everyone at i.e . Thank you for caring so much and working so hard . One last special thanks to my amazing support acts - @lucyroseparton , @kenyatesmusic , @winterbourne , @iamchrissimmons , @missstephgrace , @lukethopmson and @_eddieberman . What a damn pleasure !!!! We have two more left for the year - PERTH this evening which is sold out and then on Sunday we’re at the @3oceanswinery in MARGARET RIVER for which there are still some tickets available so if you’re in this neck of the woods then come down and celebrate the end of this massive year with us :-) All my love . Mike xxxx

CALIFORNIA - thank you so much for two fantastic shows at the The Fillmore and The Belasco theatre - the perfect way to end what has been a phenomenal few weeks here in NORTH AMERICA . We truly have had an incredible time and I feel beyond lucky to have such an amazing group of people supporting me and my music over here . I’m sure it won’t be long till we’re back this way again :-) We’re off to NEW ZEALAND now where I’m delighted to say that my good friend Luke Thompson will be supporting the show at the Powerstation in AUCKLAND and the mighty Winterbourne will be opening for me across AUSTRALIA ! All shows are now sold out other than the 3 Oceans Wine Company - Margaret River and a handful of tickets left for Enmore Theatre in SYDNEY . You can grab them from the website if you so desire :-) For now here is the live acoustic version of “he leaves you cold” . this was a pretty crazy one ….. we found ourselves well and truly off the beaten track as we were driving through rural Pennsylvania and stumbled upon an old abandoned house which seemed to be defying the laws of gravity by standing upright ….. a combination of it being absolutely freezing and us all feeling fairly certain that some shot gun touting mad man could pounce at any minute , meant that this was possibly the quickest video that we made.... I think its got a nice charm to it though and I hope y’all like it !! Lots of love to you all . Mike xx

Hello you lot ! we’ve been having the most excellent time here in NORTH AMERICA :-) VANCOUVER and SEATTLE were exceptional and looking forward to playing in PORTLAND this evening ! I really do love the north west :-) here is the 9th video from “RUNAWAY” and it's for a song called “ HE LEAVES YOU COLD” This is by far the oldest song on the record . It was written over ten years ago and to be really honest I’d forgotten about it and certainly never imagined it would eventually find its way on to a record . Usually when I make an album I go in to the studio with twelve to fifteen songs and once they’re recorded we pick the best ten or eleven . With runaway I was convinced that I had the ten songs for the record and foolishly didn’t record any backups …. Of course when listening back to everything on the final day of recording with the band there was one song that for whatever reason hadn’t quite come out as well as the other nine . My producer chris asked if there were any other songs floating about that might fit well . I spent several hours going back through the archives and eventually remembered this one . I was sceptical at first and found it hard to believe that a song written so long ago could co exist with all of my newest ones . I’m so glad that we ended up giving it a go . It actually ended up being a really important moment on the album and I’ve had a number of people saying that its they’re favourite (don’t know what that says about my song writing trajectory haha ;-)) For the video , tbh there wasn’t much of a plan other than to end up somewhere wintery and beautiful . That place turned out to be ASPEN, COLORADO …. An absolutely beautiful little ski town nestled within the Rocky Mountains (special to any dumb and dumber fans …. I fucking love that movie!!!) Needless to say it was absoluty freezing and kept the running theme of uncomfortable filming environments going beautifully ;-) As always a mahoooooooosive thank you to my buddy @jarradseng for filming and editing and to @stularsen and @linearchris for braving the weather with us . Thank you all so much for your continued support . Mike xx

Hello everyone , hope you’re all really good ! Here is the seventh video from our “runaway” roadtrip series (link to full video in my bio). This one was shot in Detroit and is called “GHOST TOWN” . I have only ever played once in Detroit - a few years ago at a beautiful old venue called @fillmoredetroit and it was definitely one of the stand out shows of the tour . I have to be honest , before that evening I was quite unaware of what the city had been through . We had a few beers and a chat with some locals after the show and they gave me a brief history lesson …. The birth place of Motown and once the thriving home to much of the American motor industry (General Motors , ford etc ) the city then fell on hard times as cars became cheaper to make over seas . Many of the factories and plants closed down leaving thousands of workers unemployed and with few prospects . Over the years more and more people left Detroit in search of opportunity and as a result houses and in some cases entire neighbourhoods were completely abandoned . I remember this idea really sticking with me . The thought of a real life ghost town was so sad and bizarre . A few years later I wrote this song . We spent two days filming there on our trip and it was quite an overwhelming experience . Driving through silent streets that would have once been bustling neighbourhoods and walking in to abandoned houses still full of peoples discarded possessions and old lives . it was deeply sad and honestly quite a difficult couple of days . I hope we’ve captured some of the mood and atmosphere with this video . Massive thanks as always to @jarradseng for nearly freezing his fingers off during the making of this and also to @stularsen and @linearchris . Please share it around if you can . Loads of love and many thanks . Mike xx Ps I need to say that this is only the situation in a few areas and Detroit for the most part seems like a really cool town . The last thing I want to do with this song is to paint an unfair picture of the place or offend anyone !!!
