Mike Hughes new single That Girl Is…) Misery and UK tour with Miles Kane

South Yorkshire troubadour Mike Hughes has announced the release of his new single ‘(That Girl Is…) Misery’ on October 7th 2013, coinciding with a full UK tour as support to Miles Kane.

Abound with classic folk and Americana influences, Mike’s classic singer-songwriter style showcases a range and talent that is creating much early excitement and rapidly marking Mike Hughes out as a ‘one to watch’ this year.

Just a handful of live performances over the past year have led to Mike winning avid supporters that include producer Ross Orton (Arctic Monkeys, MIA, The Kills) and Miles Kane, who invited Mike to support him on his upcoming tour.

Following sessions recorded earlier in the year with Phil Anderson that helped sculpt the sound of Mike Hughes, Ross Orton then took Mike into his studio in early 2013 to put the first set of tracks down. Two members of Miles Kane’s band, George Moran and Jay Sharrock, also feature on the recordings and now make up an integral part of the Mike Hughes band.

The first release from those sessions with Ross Orton will be the new single ‘(That Girl Is…) Misery’, a track that dives into a thumping Americana anti-ballad, with Mike’s soaring, earnest vocals taking centre-stage. The added instrumentation from Mike’s band also take the new track into bolder territory, adding an influence that at points wouldn’t feel out of place in a Tarantino movie. A sound perhaps best described as ‘Apocalyptic Gospel Blues’.

Mike Hughes will head out as support to Miles Kane on his Autumn tour this September, before heading back into the studio to continue working on his full-length debut album, due out in 2014.

 ‘That Girl Is…) Misery’ is released on October 7th 2013 and will be available from all good digital outlets.
