Michael Henchman's latest EP is a mostly-acoustic project, continuing to explore characters finding their way along wayward paths.... the sweetness of finally coming home; being free yet not free of love; hard times on the prairie; stepping into a larger life after loss of a parent. He paints both the tangible and the intangible - what is perceived directly and what is laid across a wider cinematic landscape - in his ongoing fascination with far horizons and how the heart becomes entangled by time and distance; with what is both near and far.
"It is often in quieter places that what is true and real becomes more apparent; one can feel the unbroken connection to the pulse of life, " he says. "For those of us who write songs, ponder, seek the Muse, and write some more, it is a formative wellspring."
Rousing anthems, bittersweet ballads, and stories of wandering roads less traveled. Acoustic and electric folk meets Americana, in a diverse yet cohesive collection of songs backed by some of Portland, Oregon's finest musicians.
“...I’m 40 miles from midnight And a million more from clear sight -- No sign of slowin' down...”
