Listen to When There Are No Words

A versatile musician, Michael J Tinker has been putting out music since 2012. He’s known both for his folk-orientated singer-songwriter albums as well as zany music for children, putting out 11 albums in almost as many years. He tours throughout the world.

Based in Somerset, UK, Michael has always had a love of good stories and so was naturally drawn to traditional folk music as well as wordsmiths like Mark Knopfler, Ryan Adams and Glen Phillips.

Michael’s drive to write music comes from a desire to connect with people on a deeper level, sharing the joys and struggles of life to help people know they are not alone and perhaps enable them to navigate the world better. This is drawn from a deep spiritual faith, an honesty about the brokenness of the world and a secure hope that one day everything will be made new.

During his career Michael has been privileged to work alongside award-winning acts such as Damien O’Kane (the Kate Rusby band) and Ron Block (Alison Krauss&Union Station).
