I have the upmost respect for solo artists, especially those as modest as Michael Oechsle.
After parting way’s with his previous band Fastest Gun In The West, Michael has thankfully (for us!) pursued his passion for music as Halcyon Drive. Although i’m still determining exactly how to pronounce the new name (Hal-Sye-On?) i’m completely and utterly enthralled within the story he writes, and the sound that proceeds it.
‘Attics’ (the song) is an upbeat exploration of the mind and my favorite from the seven track debut piece. The authenticity and delivery of Michael’s lyrics alongside the composition of acoustic guitar coexist perfectly with the computer generated drums.
Fortunately for you, in the time it’s taken me to produce this piece Michael has released another single titled ‘Two’.
Having recorded every single track individually in his modest home studio, we need to support and follow Halcyon Drive in the hope that this amazing talent is recognised and showcased.
