Big News Update - Debut Single Release.

2013 was a good year for MJH music, web and 2014 has started out even better. I am proud to announce that my debut single “Proud to be Country” is going to produced and released by Musik and Film Records in the US, unhealthy and will be distributed globally through Sony/The Orchard.

It has been a long process to get to here, pancreatitis but I am really excited about this track, and even more excited to be working with such a quality production team. Stephen Wrenchhas worked with many greats over the years in all genres including to name a few Survivor, Toto, Daryl Worley, John Anderson, Bad Company, Tamika, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Duran Duran, Rick Springfield, Red Jumpsuit Apparatus, and now is going to work together with me to create something special. The rest of the team at Musik and Filmhave also worked with some amazing artists over a long time, you can see the credits for the rest of the team here.  It has been a great experience getting started on this journey, and now with the support of Musik and Film I will be able to take my career to the next level.

The release date for the single will be announced in February, but don’t worry, you will hear about it first in the next update.

Big thanks also to Bryce Wastney for helping me out also with promotions, marketing and social media, and also for the songwriting tips, invaluable stuff. Check out his site and support another artist who is working with Musik and Film. 2014 has also started out with promotional work, including a photo shoot to update webpage content, and as a pre-planning shoot to develop images and scenes for the video clip for “Proud to be Country”.

Here is one of the images from the photo shoot. To see more go towww.michaelhorneman.com.au and have look around the updated site.

The String Contingent:

Virtuosic instrumental trio The String Contingent compose and perform music of sparkling beauty and originality that explores the full spectrum of musical expression. Australians Chris Stone (violin) and Holly Downes (double bass) with Scotsman Graham McLeod (guitar) integrate disparate musical styles through their own refined acoustic sensibilities.

Drawing from genres including celtic, classical, jazz and bluegrass, The String Contingent burnish their original compositions through the clarity and precision of a meticulous ‘chamber music’ ethos. Their multi-faceted approach results in highly accessible yet sophisticated music that captivates audiences from any genre, while retaining their own unique style.

“The most amazing trio of musicians you will come across. Subtle, entertaining, mesmerising and totally engaging folk. Wonderful stuff.”

— Anthony John Clarke, songwriter and performer, UK
