Michael Fein is a singer and songwriter from Melbourne, Australia. His sound has a driven, direct and forward-thinking tone, which blurs the lines between various influences, ranging from alternative rock, to Brit-pop, and everything in between.

Inspired by artists as diverse as Pearl Jam, Doves, Soundgarden and The Verve, Michael set out to achieve a direct, one-of-a-kind sound, filled with energy and raw lyrics. After mailing his first EP to various labels, he received a call from Australian Hall of Fame legend Lobby Loyde, who eventually teamed up with him to perform together, and produce Fein’s debut full-length album, “The Odyssey.”

This was the beginning of an exciting life-long musical journey which saw countless shows including festivals, live radio and TV performances. Through the span of his career, Michael has explored many sonic aesthetics, ranging from straight-up dirty riff rock to sweet melodic acoustic tunes. His travels around the world armed him with the ammunition to make words and instruments his weapons of choice.
