ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Every artists new album these days comes with media campaigns heralding brilliant new songs, catchy hooks, amazing song writing etc and often the listener is left disappointed. With Beale it’s like someone’s taken all the best bits of your favourite singer songwriters mixed them together and then added a guy who can really play guitar and sing. Heartfelt lyrics with beautiful melodies married to great guitar playing. Never once do you forget that this is a powerful acoustic artist but equally remarkably is you wont find yourself listening to a bunch of songs that all sound the same.

Fronyt man for aussie blues rock band Men in Blues, Mike Beale has been recording and performing at many of Australia’s premier blues festivals.

Studio and commercial recording commitments kept Mike and the band off the road for the most part of 2008 but this change of focus also allowed the time to develop a solo album ‘Short Stories’.
‘Writing for other people meant I had a lot of great songs lying around that weren’t being used and I really wanted to get them down.’
So mid 2008 saw Mike return to acoustic playing with the new album recorded on the Gold Coast at Big Note Productions with legendary engineer/producer Adrian Stuckey (Neil Finn/Split Enz). “

Great-- My Ears Don't Lie
Some songs send chills down your spine.Some songs sway your head uncontrollably. Mike Beale's music does all of this and more. His lyrics slice, cut and soothe. I've been listening to "Short Stories" for two weeks straight. These short stories stay with you for a long time.

Awesome Lyrics
