⁴The Sails (Woking, Surrey, UK) deliver the most richly intense power pop. It's an all-original blend of 60s influences with a uniquely modern edge. No one does it better. It is all the work of multi-instrumentalist / producer Michael Gagliano.
"UK's best powerpop act" **** Mojo
"Magical" **** Q
"Something special" **** Kerrang
"Best album of the year" ***** Miami Times
"Extremely satisfying" *** The Sunday Times
Highly active with The Sails from 2006 to 2010, Michael Gagliano has spent the past decade touring worldwide as a performing member of the Let It Be musical theater production. He has played in many of the same theatres as The Beatles themselves, growing his personal profile in the process.
The Sails are now back and at their best!
The digital-only releases of One Hot Mess in 2019 and Dr. Michael's Medicine Bag in early 2020 demonstrate a wave of original creativity. However, that's just the warm-up for an exciting 2021. Michael is writing his strongest material yet, with late 2020 singles Crying Out Loud and Fly So High supported by cinematic music videos that have significantly grown his audience throughout the United Kingdom. New Day Rising is an anthem for 2021 in waiting.
The Sails are ready for a breakout year in 2021. A full album of all-new material is in the works, combined with a "top 15" compilation from previous releases that new fans might have missed the first time around!
