Australian Independent singer-songwriter Mick Lindsay released his much anticipated new single ‘Drink About You’ on the 01st March 2019. It’s been 2 year since Mick’s last release of the stereophonic synthesis of the ‘This Song’ EP to now mix that sound with a new-found swag and honeyed tones in the punch-drunk love song ‘Drink About You’
Lindsay’s a songwriter/performer riding the swell to the crest of his career. 2019 has kicked off with national TV interviews and Mick performing non-stop alongside international artists (USA/UK) at events like Magic Millions, Rockin’ Rocky, Tamworth Country Music Festival, Rodeo Noosa and Backroad Bash before he returns to finish the record in Nashville, USA.
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.
President of the Dirt 'n' Dust Festival, Stephen Malone said: “When it came to choosing a musician to headline our 20th celebrations, Mick was a no-brainer. He has a diverse musical repertoire and can shift effortlessly between country, rock and pop to get the crowd pumped and keep them dancing.”
