A Profoundly Personal Musical Journey with Michael Simic
Peter Rowland caught up with talented singer/songwriter Michael Simic in Kiama’s (NSW) Coronation Park for the podcast’s first in-person chat and Peter’s first face-to-face interview since the emergence of Covid-19. Michael Simic is a prolific songwriter and multi-talented performer whose music and lyrics draw on the evocative beauty of love and nature. The two first met on a 15 hour international flight from Sydney to Doha in 2018 and immediately hit it off.
In this (at times) deeply personal and emotional chat, Michael shares his unique journey to becoming a successful musician and entertainer, and the many individual and musical influences that have shaped him along the way, including his moonlit moment with Rose (now wife) and the birth of their beautiful daughter, Sunny. Michael’s band Mikelangelo and the Black Sea Gentlemen have been performing for 20 years and have released four albums. Michael has also released two other albums under the moniker of Mikelangelo, and is currently putting the finishing touches to his first solo album as Michael Simic. Michael also presents “Australian By Night” for Braidwood radio on Wednesdays at 9:30pm. Michael’s 5 music choices might surprise even his most dedicated fans.
