MBF in Vancouver

DH Vancouver Staff Sep 11, 2009 11:16 pm


Fans and critics agree, with the release of ‘The MBF Love LP’ Michael Bernard Fitzgerald has outgrown his hometown of Calgary. Since his first show at a tiny folk club in 2005, Michael has funded and released two independent EPs, shared stages with Roz Bell, Jully Black, The Wallflowers, Stars and Hedley, and has won numerous prizes and awards including the X92 Xposure contest which landed him a spot at Virginfest and ‘most promising songwriter’ by the Calgary Folk Festival.

“MBF is more than just that special spark. He’s a lethal tank of gasoline, igniting the musical and artistic scene and creating completely different experiences for lucky audiences.” – The Gauntlet

June 16th marks the release of ‘The MBF Love EP’ – a successfully emotive collection of original compositions that are direct, funky, and immediately compelling. Playing to a sell-out crowd at Jack Singer Hall (capacity: 1800) earlier this month for his CD release party, Michael Bernard Fitzgerald traces comparisons to artists like Jack Johnson and Jason Mraz, but the vibe and execution are entirely his own.

“This newly crafted disk packs with it Motown flare and Fitzgerald’s soulful voice. It is an innovative fusion of soul, acoustic melodies, choir choruses, and horns. These sounds are infused with Fitzgerald’s passionate lyrics about society and modern love.” – BeatRoute Magazine
