OCEANIC ROOTS WITH A DEEP INFLUENCE OF HOME ON THE WEST AUSTRALIAN COAST
Michael Triscari’s music is a reflection of his passion and love for the ocean. Touring up and down the coast has left the 25 year old artist with plenty of time to write and perfect his craft. The Australian coastline although bleak and daunting to some draws inspiration for others, sculpting and guiding many towards their calling, surfers and artist alike. Tricky is one such talented young man with a humbleness and charisma that precedes him. Playing an upbeat fusion of oceanic roots, blues and folk, this young artist has always had an ability to connect with people and take them on a musical journey.
Currently based in Exmouth, a small town located on the northern end of the Ningaloo Reef, he finds constant inspiration in many forms. time is divided between writing music,working on boats, surfing, freediving/spearfishing, and exploring the reef.
Tricky has supported acts such as Dope Lemon, The Beautiful Girls, OKA, Ash Grunwald, Band of Frequencies and Caravana Sun, and performed at festivals including Byron Bay Blues Festival, Lifes a Beach, Live by the bay, Nannup Music Festival and Bridgetown Blues Festival. His debut album ‘Waterman’ was released in 2016 with a tour of sold out shows in WA and a launch tour on the east coast. Two new singles were released in 2018 "Calm Like The SeaGrass and Suspend, both recieving airtime on Triple J and great review by presenters, fans and music industry.
