Michael Dunstan is a pensive Perth-based folk writer born in Wheatbelt Western Australia, with a peaceful focus on all things bigger than us.
Venturing far from his quaint regional upbringing, at 24 years of age Michael has independently, and swiftly sprawled his intricate song writing globally since the release of his debut EP ‘Solace’ in January 2017. Following up with the sophomore EP ‘Partly Cloudy’ and third EP ‘New Normal’, Michael has now loyally garnered in excess of 6 million streams to date on Spotify alone.
Having completed extensive headline tours of Australia four times, and New Zealand twice, in the last 24 months (with shows largely sold out) Dunstan has been welcomed with a warm and large following for his intricate craft. Openly sharing personal past struggles with heavy anxiety, Michael hopes to leave all with a piece of mindfulness, and share a new-found appreciation of the beautiful world in which we live.
With a deep love for the open road, Michael’s musings reflect and explore periods of travel, calm and silence, and the accompanying revelations and growth found while transitioning through light to dark periods of our lives.
The debut album ‘Impermanence’ marks the fifth chapter; a diverse 11 track journey that promised to consolidate Michael Dunstan as a profound Australian singer-songwriter was released world-wide on Friday July 8th 2022.
