Hailing from Victoria, BC, Michael Leigh Gresham has spent the last few years weaving together emotive vocals and sounds that make you feel removed from life’s stresses. Growing up, Gresham sought inspiration from Ben Harper, Matt Costa, Jack Johnson, The Beatles, Arcade Fire, Bahamas and Lovin Spoonful. He left the coast and moved inland to Winnipeg to study Environmental Design. It was during this time that he began writing his own songs. After one year he headed further east to London, UK where he continued writing and playing music. He found himself working in the film and visual effects industry, which led him back to the beloved West Coast. He commuted to film school in Vancouver from Bowen Island everyday for two years, and used the island’s inspiration to continue making music. He is now nestled in Vancouver’s Railtown after just recently releasing an EP that shares the essence of the island and the grit of the big cities.
