ARTIST PROFILE | Michael Dunstan
Michael Dunstan is a pensive folk writer from Western Australia, with a peaceful focus on all things bigger than us. Born and raised in the Central Wheatbelt town of Northam, Michael’s career has seen the 26-year-old expand his horizons as his music takes him around Australia and New Zealand. His laid-back attitude and preference for a slower pace of life is exemplified in his music, which is rooted in a mix of traditional folk and relaxed surf-rock styles. His lyrics are open and honest, and they seek to reflect on travel, mindfulness, serenity and growth.
As the years pass by, Michael’s loyal listener base is exponentially building. With a diverse catalogue of “thoughtful, warm folk music that at once feels universal and intimate” (Music Feeds), Michael has swiftly sprawled his intricate song writing globally since the release of his debut EP ‘Solace’ in January 2017. In 2022, Michael released his second full length studio album ‘Impermanence’, which so far has been met with high acclaim as his best body of music released yet.
To date, Michael’s songs have been streamed over a massive 12 million times on Spotify alone.
