Mike Dignam follows up his tour support of Joe Brooks in 2010 with his first UK headline tour. During the JB tour Mike gave away 2000 free acoustic EPs with songs Anyone Else, Night With You, Bring Me Back and Taken Out featuring on it. Now, the songs have been re-recorded with a full band, and will be released on 7th March 2011, as a limited edition EP.

A free download of a track off the EP and taster streams will be available from the 20th Feb via the website link

Mike Dignam at the tender age of seventeen wrote and recorded his debut album, producing a collection of songs full of teen angst and energy, wrapped up with dynamic vocals and composition belying his years. He put some of the songs on the internet and let people here them (back when MySpace was novel) and 30,000 fans quickly appeared on his profile. Without anyone else to pay for it, he saved up and paid for the pressing of the CDS (quite a substantial investment for a 17 year old); but this proved to be a good decision as he sold out of the delivery via the internet, at gigs and busking.

Justifiably proud of this fledgling composition Mike set about honing his song writing skills, searching for that hit hook. This journey took him through collaborations with international song writers, winning competitions (under 18 Youth Music winner), going to college to study music, asking for advice off everyone he met… and busking on the mean streets of London.

Without making banal comparisons you wouldn’t be a million miles off the mark with favourable likening to James Morrison and Jason Mraz.

Two years later, having been constantly writing, the beginnings of album number two are taking shape. A free acoustic mini album is due out end of November 2010, to coincide with supporting Joe Brooks on his UK tour. Then 2011 is when it will all begin to come together for this rapidly maturing talent, with his first UK tour accompanied by an EP, festival appearances, European tour and more.
