Prolific anthemic pop rock songwriter Scott Michael Cavagan returns with a new EP, To Be Someone, along with a stellar launch gig to celebrate its release.

A companion piece to his 2019 LP 21st Century Love, the EP finds the solo artist, backed by his live band, further exploring his penchant for widescreen, arena-ready cerebral rock that goes to task on the state of the world and more introspective matters. Heavy on energy, drive, buzzsaw guitars and colossal walls of sound, To Be Someone doesn’t waste a second, with the likes of Escape The Void and I Feel Alive When I Sleep immediately standing toe-to-toe with the recent work of Manic Street Preachers (with some cheeky guitar moves straight out of The Holy Bible in the latter track), but carrying enough confidence and conviction to stand as the work of a gifted and talented artist with an impeccable knack for churning out colossal choruses.

On Friday 6th August, the same day as the EP’s release, Cavagan will lead a phenomenal bill at the divine Buckybomb emporium and regional treasure otherwise known as Little Buildings, with support from scuzz merchants Dunes and the (in their words) “textural sophisto-rock superpower trio” Tankengine.
