With the purpose of raising awareness of homelessness and poverty in his native Scotland, Michael McMillan has independently released a collection of his latest work centring on personal and life experiences. Many of the tracks are written in a storytelling style touching on relevant issues such as hurt, abuse and the fragility of humanity. A few friends are enlisted to help add a number of simple arrangements and assist with musical backing, with a particular note going to the subtle and effective use of the upright bass. With the sober motivation behind the recording reflecting in the style of the writing, Michael never stretches himself vocally or rarely ups the pace. Early on though a number of tracks have a certain Celtic flavour, most notably heard during "Life" and "Everything Tastes Good When You're Hungry". Michael McMillan doesn't attempt to break any new ground with this recording but addresses subjects and concerns that are close to his heart and should be close to ours.

Just bought the first album by Michael McMillan "Cold and Roofless" it's absolutely brilliant. Great songs great melodies and wonderful playing. What an amazing lyricist this man is. Where has he been and where is he now? How come I hadn't heard his music before ? Well worth buying. Thank you Michael !
