Michael Rault

Michael Rault is a Toronto based singer, guitarist and songwriter fronting his own eponymously named band. A gifted multi- instrumentalist and arranger, his hooky blend of pop rock refracts an evolution of guitar based music through the ages. An era-defying mischievousness defines his synthesis of jukebox R’n’B, and acid psych as refracted through the experience of an adolescence spent idolizing the clever craftsmanship of the Beatles and the wiggy New Orleans textures of Dr. John in equal measure. !Rault’s latest album Living Daylight will see worldwide release on Burger Records in 2015. As a recent transplant from his native Edmonton, the album is a melodically adventurous take on a classic theme - leaving home to make your way in the big city. Produced and recorded in collaboration with Renny Wilson (Mint Records), Living Daylight is a dynamic fusion of the past and future. An inclination for early Rock N’ Roll is perverted by a heady production sensibility akin to the warped contemporary psych of Tame Impala. As a document of oddball DIY songwriting Living Daylight fits nicely in the lineage of records created by Ex-Edmontonian contemporaries like Mac Demarco or Sean Nicholas Savage. There must be something in the water... !Preceding Living Daylight will be an introductory new single also on Burger Records (in cooperation with Bad Actors). Produced in collaboration with members of Fucked Up and Slim Twig, yet written and performed entirely solo - Still Not Sad / Nothing Means Nothing further rarefies Rault’s economic and modernized take on classic rock tropes. Expect a busy year in 2015 for this dynamic instrumentalist and performer.
