In another time and on a distant sea, Michael Penrose would have been a stowaway aboard a battered ship. Ignoring monstrous waves looming over the topsail, his stride to the bow would be resolute. The deckhands’ frantic screams would fade to a whisper upon hearing Michael’s voice.
Sailing forward through time, echoes from the past fill warm clubs where Michael performs. His thought-provoking and passionate pieces like A Faraway Place and Blanket of Blue are enhanced with rhythmic grooves. With the soulful Near the Sun, we are reminded that our ship remains battered but a powerful voice beckons us into calm waters.
