There 'Ain't No Stoppin'' Mike Wyatt's Blues/Soul Groove
Mike Wyatt's voice alone is enough to convince of the standout appeal of his talent. Containing the kind of gritty emotion, husky passion and tender subtlety that effortlessly animate the poise and confidence of his mature phrasing, Wyatt's voice comes with a warmly inviting aura all its own. That such a voice on its own would catch ears and turn heads is clear, but when you add in his keen creative instinct for infusing a bluesy, soul-brushed vibe with a rock-tinged swagger it quickly becomes apparent that his is a talent that is here to stay.
Melodically astute and with a finely tuned ear for crafting instinctively infectious grooves, Wyatt's guitar-driven sound skillfully blends the emotional gravitas of a blues/soul sensibility with the uplift and vibrance of a danceable, pop-rock vibe. Already having received recognition from BBC Introducing and performed as a session guitarist for The Ting Tings and Danni Minogue, along with supporting the likes of Bernhoft, The Cribs and Andy Jordan, his songs 'Ain't No Stoppin' Now' and 'Tell Me' showcase just why he is in the process of making a name for himself on the U.K. music scene.
