Michael Waugh

with special guest CAMILLE TRAIL

Multi award winning singer songwriter Michael Waugh returns to MEMO with his band to launch his new album Beauty & Truth.

Waugh is a revered songwriter, a compelling live performer and an extraordinary storyteller. Among his admirers are Josh Cunningham from The Waifs, iconic singer-songwriter Eric Bogle and alt.country luminary Shane Nicholson. Michael has been the recipient of many awards including Folk and Roots album of the Year (Music Victoria Awards), Songs of Peace and Tolerance award (Pt. Fairy Folk Festival) and Heritage Song of the Year (Golden Guitar Awards). His forthcoming album ‘Beauty & Truth’ paints vivid, joyous, funny and loving pictures of growing up queer in rural Australia.

“MEMO has the best sound in Melbourne and the beautiful, intimate room is perfect for these very personal stories. It has a deep sense of history – in part because so many amazing artists have played there, but also a personal history for me. ‘Beauty and Truth’ is a personal, intimate record – and that’s why Memo is the only place to launch it.”
