Throughout the past decade the Canadian born singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and producer has released multiple critically acclaimed albums, EPs, and singles on various venerable indie labels before settling into his current musical home at Wick. With the help of Daptone mainstay producer Wayne Gordon (Kali Uchis & Bruno Mars), Rault recorded A New Day Tonight at the Daptone House of Soul. This time around, the process shifted out to Los Angeles following Michael’s permanent move out west where he recorded most of his 2022 self titled masterpiece. On the ten tracks on his self titled album Michael delivers a timeless collection of songs - continuing his increasingly profound exploration into the worlds of progressive pop, psych folk, yacht rock and beyond.
In the time since his move to California, Rault has become a regular in the experimental/psych/roots underground of America’s West Coast, working as a studio and live session guitarist and multi instrumentalist for the likes of Drug Dealer, Pearl Charles, Paint and also found a second home as a member of the reformed line up of the legendary 1970’s Zambian Rock band WITCH, playing alongside original members Emmanuel Jagari Chanda & Patrick Mwondela. Rault also has a long touring history under his belt, having shared stages with the likes of Shuggie Otis, Charles Bradley, Os Mutantes, King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard, Whitney, Homeshake, Thee Oh Sees, Mild High Club, Cut Worms and many more.
