A man in a suit, an old semi-acoustic guitar and a voice like sandpaper dipped in honey is how you may describe singer/songwriter Michael P Cullen. Michael has just debuted his new single and video for "Do You Believe," a vivid, swirling story of a marriage close to meeting its end. Cullen's melancholy baritone glides over some truly impressive instrumentation, helped by the production of Tim Powles of The Church and mixing of English producer Danton Supple. As a musician, Michael tells stories of longing and regret with hints of American mid-century pulp writers, 1960s Las Vegas cabret and Southern Gothic Americana. Listening to Michael may bring up memories of Leonard Cohen, Tom Waits and Nick Cave, but with a unique blend of noir, new wave and northern soul.
