Memory is the follow up to 2014’s much-celebrated Distance and the final instalment in an album trilogy that commenced with Blindspot in 2013.
Memory retains the epic minimalism characteristic of Distance and Blindspot; disarmingly sparse arrangements and high quality musicianship giving prominence to Michaelson’s expertly crafted, emotional songwriting.
