MICHAEL ARMSTRONG – INNOCENCE OF MEN_FEATURING 2 X GRAMMY AWARD WINNER ALBERT LEE_ Released 8th July 2016

The new single taken from Michael’s eponymous debut album features the sublime guitar work of 2 x Grammy Award Winner ALBERT LEE,
regarded by many as one of the greatest players of a  generation.  Inspired and recorded as homage to THE EAGLES, Michael wrote
the song after working alongside their founder, the late GLENN FREY, I was fortunate enough to work with Glenn on his solo
project ‘After Hours’ in 2012. As a long term admirer of his work it  was a real thrill to get to know the man himself. He told me how The
Eagles had been given a really hard time in America, labelled by many  as misogynists. Songs such as ‘Lyin’ Eyes’, ‘Tequila Sunrise’,
‘Witchy Woman’ and most recently ‘Busy Being Fabulous’ tended to  portray their ‘tongue-in-cheek’ country-tinged track about a serial
adulterer who can’t understand why his wife doesn’t trust him!”_

With trademark soaring harmonies and melodic precision this ‘instant’ song highlights Michael’s unique lyrical prowess and plain
ability to write great catchy songs. The icing on the cake is the amazing contribution of legendary guitarist Albert Lee (Eric Clapton, Emmy
Lou Harris, The Everly Brothers). _“I worked with Albert on his 70th Birthday Celebration shows and besides being the greatest guitar player EVER, he is also one
of the loveliest guys you’ll ever meet. I asked if he’d consider  playing on the track and a couple of days later it was done. Result!’_

Mchael & Glenn Frey Michael & Albert Lee_ Michael’s debut album has been very well received by critics  and fans alike and has led to recent appearances on national TV,  national and international radio and to sell out shows across the UK.  Following on from hugely successful tours during 2015 supporting Leo Sayer, Vonda Shepard and The Hollies Peter Howarth, this year has seen him  already complete a sell-out tour from January to May supporting iconic  80’s band T’Pau, and coincides with his own UK summer/autumn tour.
