Michael Rault announces his eponymous new album Michael Rault and shares the first single and video, “Neither Love Nor Money”. Michael Rault is set for release on June 10th via Majesticsilk Records. Rault is touring with W.I.T.C.H. this June and details of his headline summer tour are soon to be announced.
Rault began to take shape during a time of endings. Michael, on the cusp of turning 30 and freshly off the road promoting 2018’s A New Day Tonight, had just ended a romantic relationship, and cut ties with his management and touring band. Returning home to Montreal he hunkered down in his bedroom studio and began writing. Over the span of five months he penned most of the album. Rault moved to California and started working with producers Wayne Gordon (Amy Winehouse, Bruno Mars), Lewis Pesacov (Best Coast, FIDLAR) & Mac Demarco on the record.
Rault has become a regular in the experimental/psych/roots underground of America’s West Coast, working as a studio and live session guitarist and multi instrumentalist for the likes of Drug Dealer, Pearl Charles, Paint and also found a second home as a member of the reformed line up of the legendary 1970’s Zambian Rock band WITCH, playing alongside original members Emmanuel Jagari Chanda & Patrick Mwondela. He has also been working with members of Europe’s experimental music scene such as Jacco Gardener and members of Mauskovic Dance Band, L’Éclair & Embryo.
