Personal Statement From Mike Williams Regarding His New EP ‘STORYLINES’
I’m so thrilled to finally share my EP ‘STORYLINES’ with the world!
Since taking a break from music in October 2021, I rediscovered my sound and rekindled my ambitions. I wanted to create something that paid homage to what really matters, and this EP is a culmination of this desire.
I realised that intricate stories shaped by background and experience exist within all of us, from our careers to friendships and everything in between. For me, music has impacted my life the most and I want to pay homage to how it has affected my own personal journey.
The stories that live within us shape who we are and why we make the choices we do, and I want to represent the part of my life that has changed me the most.
‘STORYLINES’ explores the ups and downs of my musical career and all those involved in my journey, from conquering the scene at radio to thriving on club stages to unforgettable memories playing at some of the world’s most infamous venues and festivals.
The 4 tracks on the EP represent my return to a more free and liberated relationship with my music and will feature 3 pre-released singles including Best Part Missing, Supernova, and Ambush in addition to a new song When The Sun Is Gone (feat. RYVM). While Best Part Missing is an ode to the relief that comes with finding the right person, Supernova is a cosmic collection of festival-ready drops. Meanwhile, Ambush boasts a darker sound with full-throttle breakdowns and When The Sun Is Gone (feat. RYVM) is a meteoric and emotional tribute to a loved one with goose-bump-raising vocals from RVYM.
I’m also really excited to celebrate the release of my EP with my Storylines show at ADE on Friday! The show will focus on my musical journey but will also involve everyone who has had an important role in my story – we know the acts by name, but what are their own stories? I hope to give back to my fans, audiences, and peers who have been there for me every step of the way by representing their contributions to my success.
I can’t wait!
