  • Michael Mormecha (Mojo Fury) ‘LOFi LiFE’ LiVE

    Wed 30 Nov

    7:45 pm

    mm-30-nov

    Michael Mormecha is a self-producing multi-instrumentalist. When not fronting Belfast’s favourite alternative rock band Mojo Fury who have played along side Biffy Clyro, Oceansize, Everything Everything and a whole lot more, Michael will be fusing sounds and styles of music at his farmhouse studio.

    LOFi LiFE, his debut solo album, was released in May 2016. Here’s what the critics had to say:

    “Wonderfully unique” – Artrocker

    “Darkly sensitive with an experimental edge” – Hot Press

    “An impressive cut of alt-pop lushness” – State Magazine

    Come and hear the album performed live with full band for the first time in London, plus some special guests.
