Michael Waugh returns to MEMO to launch his new album ‘The Cast.’
Waugh has been acclaimed as one of Australia’s finest songwriters, lauded for his vivid stories of uniquely Australian places and characters, told in an accent that is idiosyncratically ours.
HIs insightful tributes to friends, family and parenthood are simultaneously deeply personal and nationally recognisable; we see our own brothers, parents, pubs, rivers, struggles and joys reflected in the faces of those characters who live large in Michael’s songs.
Among Waugh’s admirers are the legendary Eric Bogle and alt. country luminary Shane Nicholson. His 2019 album ‘The Weir’ received two Golden Guitar nominations in 2020 – Male Artist of the Year and Alt Country Album of the Year – as well as a nomination at the 2020 Victorian Music Awards. His previous album ‘The Asphalt & The Oval’ won Best Folk and Roots Album at The Age Music Victoria Awards in 2018 and ‘They Don’t Let The Girls In The Game’ from that album was included in The Australian’s Best 10 songs of 2018 list.
