Michael Armstrong is a British singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist. He is heavily influenced by the great music and bands of the 1970’s such as Steely Dan, Fleetwood Mac, ELO, Supertramp and The Eagles as well as the legendary song-writers such as Paul McCartney, Bob Dylan, Billy Joel and James Taylor. His music, whilst firmly seated in the 21st Century, unashamedly has a retro-feel about it and has won him plaudits both young and old. He has a knack of producing instantly memorable pop songs, lyrically and musically engaging, as well as epic-sounding tracks.
“His integrity and dedication are humbling…. I predict that there will come a time when you'll recognise him instantly, from those precious first few bars. I’ll be there with a bottle of Bollinger, cheering from my front row seat.”
- Lesley-Ann Jones (music critic, author and biographer)
“A great entertaining vocal talent’
- David Wigg (Daily Mail Arts)
