Your chance to have a copy of Michael Armstrong’s #LookingForTheWorld Album


Michael Armstrong is releasing his second album #LookingForTheWorld on 23 November, on the eve of his 45th birthday.

#LookingForTheWorld (irony at its best) looks back to a golden era. It derides the dumbing down of society, celebrates family, looks at love and fidelity, gives a kick to reality TV, touches on the state of world politics, and of course, in the true tradition of any singer-songwriter, it bemoans the hard life this troubadour has had to struggle through to make himself heard.

Michael states “Woe is me. As with my debut album I’ve been lucky enough to enlist the help of some incredible musicians, not least, legendary guitarist Elliott Randall, famed for his work with Steely Dan and The Doobie Brothers and, in particular, for that solo on Reelin’ In The Years.”

 “I know in my time… if they tried to offer my generation music by someone that had won a game show, it would have been hysterical.” - Tom Petty

As much of the album was written and recorded during some of the most turbulent times in our history – Brexit, Trump, Terrorists & all – and with the fragile mind of an artist such as Michael himself (if you’re creative then you’ll suffer from depression) it’s a wonder that it’s ultimately such an upbeat affair. Credit for this has to go to his co-producer Warren Bennett. Every ‘ying’ needs a ‘yang’ and their partnership has undoubtedly made this the album that it is.
