Old school songwriter Michael Armstrong with double A side single

March 16, 2015

Michael Armstrong

It’s not a style that you hear much in the modern era, but there’s something genuinely charming about the throwback nature of the double-A side single from songwriter Michael Armstrong.

Coming to his own solo career relatively late after a recent change of direction, Armstrong grew up under the spell of some of the great songwriters of his generation. His love of Paul McCartney, Bob Dylan, Steely Dan, The Eagles, Billy Joel and artists of that ilk informs his own songwriting, and the results can be heard in the new single.

Song one – ‘The Radio Years’ – pays tribute directly to his love of music radio, while ‘Back To Work’ reflects on a previous career which saw him join the rat race of the daily commute. Contrasting tracks, but both with true charm – find more info at
