The first single for 2020, following an epic year for Aussie talent Mick Lindsay, will be unleashed to the world on January 31, ‘Afterparty’ is a sharp styled twist that creates a delicious harmony of country and pop. When attraction and connection collide, all you want is an afterparty for two, a smash song with cheeky lyrics and Lindsay’s smokin vocals.
Mick Lindsay’s own ‘Backroad Bash Music Festival’ will be his first of many headlining spots, following the release of this fresh track crafted by award winning Nashville song writers Phil Barton, Lindsay Rimes & Seth Ennis… and its set to be knock out show.
2019 shaped up nicely for Lindsay, following the release of the first two singles off the soon to be Album, ‘Drink About You’ and ‘If You’re Sleeping’ clocked up over 2 million streams, added to over 350 stations across the country and placed Mick as the 5th most added song to country radio on the Official Country Airplay charts.
There was no rest for the wicked for this Australian Independent singer-songwriter between another 3 months in Nashville writing and recording, to a 3 month National tour, playing 76 shows including performing alongside international artists (USA/UK) at reputable events including Magic Millions, Rockin’ Rocky, Tamworth Country Music Festival, Backroad Bash and more.
2020 is set to be another banga of a year, with Mick’s calendar filling up rapidly before seeing him head back to his second home of Nashville to continue bringing us killer tracks like this!
Mick stepped into national spotlight in 2016 with a real kicker; a ground-breaking new sound for the EP “This Song”, which on release, charted as #1 on the Australian iTunes charts, and sky-rocketed to #5 on the ARIAS. This crisp edged, Nashville recorded single is just the first taste of what’s to come from Lindsay this year. It’s all up from here with an album to be released later in the year, Mick will be announcing his tour dates in conjunction with the release.
Mick Lindsay has toured extensively over the past 8 years, with performances throughout Australia, Asia, Europe, The Middle East & America. Unafraid of sounding contemporary, and without completely abandoning his country roots, Mick is equally at home with country, rock, soul/funk, and pop. However, despite the hard-hitting, up-tempo numbers, he infuses every song with his own distinctive flavour, and undeniable honey twang.
Mick’s selection of musicians has led to a powerful, and precise band, which displays a vigour that will stand up to the most discerning music critics.
If you think traditional country is all “He-Haw” and yawn, you’re in for a pleasant surprise.
