Singer / songwriter Michael McGough is known for his work in rock-band Being As An Ocean as vocalist and guitarist, and now his latest project Heart Of Gold. Drawing influence more from ‘situations involving specific people and places’ he has captured a distinct sound not unlike that of mid-late 1980’s / early 90s pop. ‘I grew up between two households’ says Michael. 'My mother brought in this incredible range of pop/RnB to my life. I’ve always been so drawn to dominant vocals in a song, accompanied by just the right chord progression that really makes you feel something. Michael Jackson, Whitney Houston and Lisa Stansfield in particular were the leaders of that. Thats what i wanted to do. However, my fathers house was always filled with rock and roll music. The Smiths, Queen, Thin Lizzy and Led Zeppelin just to name a few. That brought in a wider range of inspiration of vocal ranges, and how the voice can really work when accompanying the right music.
