Today we are extremely pleased to premiere emerging singer-songwriter Mick Dimitri’s new single Oh My Friend right here on FM, ahead of its release tomorrow!
Oh My Friend is a powerfully poignant slice of adult contemporary pop that is bound to pull at your heartstrings instantly. Mick’s rich, warm vocal soars effortlessly over the spellbinding musicality, sounding akin to the likes of Lewis Capaldi as a result.
Talking about the single, Mick explains, “Oh My Friend is probably my most personal song, as I wrote it for a dear friend who had just been diagnosed with cancer. The two protagonists sail into the night to escape a storm but, with the first light coming up and waves breaking on their boat, they realize the futility of their attempt.”
Mick got his first big break in the music industry whilst waiting tables for Ed Sheeran in 2018. The pair hit it off immediately and resulted in Ed inviting Mick to open for him on his ‘Divide’ tour – alongside Zara Larsson and James Bay – when he was just nineteen. Now twenty, Mick is ready to begin the next chapter of his musical career and introduce listeners further to his innovative contemporary pop sound.
Oh My Friend is out on 19th February 2021.
