Chatterbox: Manchester’s Mike Dignam talks to us about his sound, heartbreak and ‘Under The Influence’

Hey, thanks for talking to us. Could you tell us something about yourselves that nobody knows?

That’s a tough one, let me get back to you on that.

What influences have gone into your sound recently?

I follow my gut with all my production, I lean towards anything punchy and gritty. Soulful and raw.

What does the single draw on in terms of subject?

The single looks at heartbreak as a drug or drink that would completely change your character, trying to explain that I’m doing and saying these things because I’m completely messed up emotionally. Think of heartbreak as the 7 tequila shot you shouldn’t of had. Anything after that was the tequilas fault.

Is it part of a larger project, an EP or album?

Yeah it’s part of my album that will be out sometime in the new year!

Where are you based?


Do you feel like your city influences your sound at all?

I made my album in a sleepy town of Southport but my biggest support comes from Manchester, with it being my home! I love getting out and playing here. There’s such a good scene for music, people really get behind you.

What do fans have to look forward to over the next few months?

I have some exciting ideas for music videos and my visuals moving forward, I want to push, explore that side of things a lot more than I have done in the past. I’ll also be getting out touring a lot more too.
