Mike Kershaw: What Lies Beneath album review
Delightfully stripped-back album from a perennial underdog Mike Kershaw.
He’s several albums into his career – recorded under his own name and as Relocate To Heathrow – but Mike Kershaw remains a relatively unknown proposition to all but the most studious of prog listeners. But obscurity doesn’t equal mediocrity, and the timeless songcraft he frequently demonstrates here proves that point. At the core of his appeal is a knack for mixing a 70s influence with more contemporary elements, something that many artists struggle to achieve.
