A passionate performer, and "hot young Winnipeg multi-keyboardist" (the Toronto Star), 29-year-old Michael Johnston describes his sound as "sentimental soul". He writes timeless and affecting songs about longing, love and Canada.
Produced by Don Kerr (Ron Sexsmith), "Curious Heart" is built around the piano. The album’s 14 songs are an inspired mix of exquisite melodies, distinctively Canadian ballads, and spirited vocal harmonies. A cast of dream musicians including Juno-nominee Oh Susanna, Maury Lafoy (Sarah Hamer), Andy Maize (Skydiggers), Lewis Melville, Don Rooke (Mary Margaret O’Hara) and Reid Jamieson embroider Johnston’s arrangements with class and soul.
