As you can probably imagine, I listen to hundreds of songs every day to find the best emerging bands to feature on alexrainbirdMusic. Sometimes these tracks are quite bad, a few of them are really good and every few weeks I come across something exceptional like ‘Turning to Gold’, from new band Michael Barrow & The Tourists. When I first heard this song, I got shivers all over, began smiling from ear to ear and got the unbeatable warmth inside of discovering an incredibly talented group of artists. This feeling is one of the best parts of my job and I hope you have it too after listening to Michael Barrow & The Tourists! The band are also releasing their debut album Juneau next month which I’m incredibly excited about – if they can make their golden touch last the length of an album, I will be a very happy guy!
