The Mining Co.

"Man of the shadows seeks and finds the sun." ("Homme de l'ombre recherche et trouve le soleil")

40 min / Published

VIPop #18

Michael Gallagher, the man behind The Mining Co. is an Irish singer-songwriter now based in London ... Having recorded his 3 albums in Spain, he draws essentially from the melting pot of American music to build his musical universe, all wrapped in an assumed romanticism ... Is it the mix of these different places that gives his music this deep and somewhat timeless beauty ? ... Mystery ... To clear up behind his words, perhaps ? 

Michael Gallagher, l'homme qui se cache derrière The Mining Co., est un singer-songwriter irlandais aujourd'hui basé à Londres ... Parti enregistrer ses 3 albums en Espagne, il puise essentiellement dans le creuset de la musique américaine pour construire son univers musical, le tout enveloppé dans un romantisme assumé ... Est-ce le mélange de ces différents lieux qui donne à sa musique cette beauté profonde et quelque peu intemporelle ? .. Mystère ... A éclaircir derrière ses mots, peut-être ?.
