Mike Roberts is a storyteller. He tells you the back-story of the song then sings you the real story with the hook to the heart. This singer/songwriter weaves tales about war, good fortune, rural life, love, environment, politics and more. His new album Travellin’ Shoes is getting airplay around Australia and has kept Mike busy with radio interviews and live performances.

New Single: Welcome to the Nuclear State

The South Australian government is proposing to build a nuclear waste dump on traditional indigenous land in the stunningly beautiful Flinders Ranges. If plans come to fruition we may well be seeing high-level radioactive waste from around the world shipped into our pristine, clean green state hoping that a catastrophe from any of the inherent risks never eventuates. Mike Roberts’ song is a wake-up call about our scenario that will have impact both nationally and internationally.

Travellin’ Shoes

I think of Australia as home now although this is not where I started out. It’s always interesting to look back on the journey, though. Some days I wonder at how I got from the streets of New York to the back woods of Oregon, from the beaches of South Australia to the fishing fleet in Kodiak and of course eventually settling down with Dianne to raise Quarter Horses, wheat, sheep, puppies and a couple of awesome kids on our farm in SA’s Mid North. I was often playing music in bands or duos but mostly solo in small venues or around the kitchen tables of close friends who wanted to know the stories of the songs I sang. These are songs of two countries, of contrasts and commonalities, of observations and experiences, of joy and regret, of friendship and the good fortune to have been able to lead the life I have.

Home Concert Review: Mike Roberts – What a Wonderful Night

Posted by Rachel Black on March 28, 2016 at 4:00pmSend Message View Blog
I was incredibly lucky to host the generous story teller, Mike Roberts on 19 March.
Mike arrived with more equipment than Jon English’s sound guys carried in and went to work setting up for not only himself but his daughter and his friends. Mike had generously organised to share the stage with 3 other amazing artists. I had 4 superb live musicians on the deck in one night.
Mike’s daughter Rosie Roberts and his friend Sue Baker sang for us and they both sang together with Mike, giving us a truly incredible experience.
Mike’s friend Quentin Eyers arrived and played the guitar, the piano and the banjo and joined Mike in the second set. It was a night of surprises after surprise as more and more talent took to the deck.
The evening was filled with music and stories; humorous and sometimes serious with each adding a little more magic to the night.
Thank you Mike!
