In 2022, 16 years on from the release of his debut album ‘The Bigger Picture’, Milow returns to his musical roots with an intimate acoustic tour. His latest album ‘Lean Into Me’ marks a return to the singer-songwriter sound of his early days. Already having six albums to his name and songs that are etched in collective memory, Milow continues to win hearts with his warm voice and golden feeling for melody and harmony.
If the distinguished title of “hardest working man in show business” weren’t already assigned to James Brown, then it could just as easily have been awarded to Milow. Since his breakthrough in 2007, the singer-songwriter has developed into one of Europe’s established names. Milow has won no less than 12 MIAs – including for ‘Best Live Act’ and ‘Best Solo Artist’ – the most important prizes you can win as a musician in Belgium. In 2019, it was exactly ten years since that Milow made his European breakthrough. To mark the occasion, he treated his fans to an unforgettable live show at a sold-out Lotto Arena in early 2020.
Milow tells an extremely personal tale with his album ‘Lean Into Me’ (2019). Songs like ‘Lay Your Worry Down’, ‘Laura’s Song’ or ‘Michael Jordan’ – about his childhood hero and the complex relationship with his father – are amongst the very best songs of his career. The album brings listeners closer to Milow than ever before.
The man from Leuven already performed several wonderful shows in 2020 and continues in the same vein in 2022. Each evening will see, amongst the well-known and lesser-known gems, a number of brand-new songs from the yet to be released 7th album pass in review. Tracks are reduced to their essence. What remains, are refined songs in which there is even more room for lyrics and emotion. Encompassed by his loyal musical companions – singer-guitarist Tom Vanstiphout (who has also been playing in Bryan Ferry’s live band for several years now) and the phenomenal singer Nina Babet – Milow takes the audience along into his wonderful world on the waves of his trusted sound.
