The songs of Nick Cave, Tom Waits and Leonard Cohen are close to the heart of Mikelangelo. He has put together a solo show including his favourite songs by these three iconic artists.
The seed of the CAVE-WAITS-COHEN show came from Mikelangelo's Classic Album Series, first performed in Melbourne at The Old Bar as a four-week residency in May 2012. The album series saw Mikelangelo the interpret some of the records that set him on his path as a young man, including Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds' Your Funeral, My Trial; Tom Waits' Franks Wild Years; and Leonard Cohen's Songs Of Love and Hate.
In February 2013, Mikelangelo made a live recording of a selection of these songs at underground Melbourne venue Some Velvet Morning. From these sessions, he released a limited edition live album entitled SOME VELVET EVENING: CAVE-WAITS-COHEN in November 2013.
Since then, he has been honing and touring the live show, taking CAVE-WAITS-COHEN to theatres, halls and festivals around Australia to great acclaim.
"It's been a wonderful journey to return to these songs and find my own way to put them across. One of the great things about music is that a song can reach deep into you and find a place to stay, where it will become part of your life. The songs I sing in the show have done just that. They live within me and keep me company. I like to think that people feel the same way when they walk out of the theatre, that these songs will travel with them and that this night will be something they will always remember."
