Melbourne singer/songwriter Michael Meeking has been shortlisted numerous times in the Australian Song Writers Associations annual competition and in 2014 his song “Murder” made the top five (Country Category.) Meeking possesses the rasp of Rod Stewart, musical sensibility of Bruce Springsteen and the forlorn heart and whimsy of Hank Williams, and so it is no wonder he has been signed to U.K. label “At The Helm Records” With a recent successful U.K. tour under his belt , rave reviews for his latest album “Ride On” and regular performances around Melbourne, Festival appearances and a new album due for release mid year is a sure sign that if you have not already heard of Michael Meeking and the Lost Souls, you certainly soon will.
The acclaimed singer-songwriter previously spent six years in the UK sharing the stage with Tim Rogers, Mick Thomas and Nick Barker, and played support gigs for British artists such as the Men They Couldn’t Hang and Glen Tilbrook.
