about

The streamable version of the album comprises the first 11 tracks. The CD and VINYL copy includes bonus songs from the 'Wasted Wonder' sessions, separately released as a the B-sides EP, "The Road Years: No One Would Believe Us In 10 Years Time". CD copies will be available upon album release. VINYL copies will be available later in 2021 following a crowdfunding campaign.

Album cover and booklet design has been finalised with my friend and fellow-Famous Gold Watch Records-label mate, Merle Sibbel (Mone). The beautifully candid album cover photo was taken by my dad, Robert Brinkworth, circa late '88. It really suits the album title, which is taken from a lyric of one of the songs and sums up that innocence and initial joy I get from music and the struggle to preserve that. This is the main defining theme of the album and the underlying thread tying all the songs together.

Thanks so much for the support in helping me get these made. I look forward to finally sending them out to you all soon!

Also, if you are in Berlin, get in touch with me directly about personal delivery to avoid postage costs on your end.

Michael Brinkworth Berlin, Germany

Berlin-based Australian folk troubadour Michael Brinkworth writes and sings in the tradition of the timeless greats. Constantly touring across Europe, Australia and North America, his backpack is stuffed full of heartfelt, road-worn songs. Rhythmic country guitar, entrancing harmonica and a soulful voice expose his vulnerable and sincere performances, as honest as an old pair of traveler’s boots. ... more
