Michele Stodart of 'The Magic Numbers' performing with guest musicians.


Over a decade since The Magic Numbers landed in the top ten with their double-platinum-selling debut album, Michele Stodart has taken temporary leave of the band she formed with her brother Romeo, to release her second solo album 'Pieces'.
Released four years after her solo debut, 'Wide-Eyed Crossing', the nine songs that comprise 'Pieces' confirm that, almost by stealth, Michele has turned into an artist whose work bears strong comparison to some of the touchstone songwriters that helped shape her outlook.
The bedrock of Michele's writing is a reliance on rock-solid melodies that always stop short of outstaying their welcome. Keen to ensure that the tunes earned their place on the record, Michele wrote most of the songs on 'Pieces' away from her guitar only setting them to chord sequences when they refused to leave her head.

"Steeped in languid melancholy... [it] sits in a rich tradition that encompasses such touchstone female performers as Karen Dalton, Jinder Sill... Allison Moorer or Gillian Welch... 'Pieces' may just be the most impressive record she's ever made" - 8/10 - Uncut

"...instantly engaging and evocative melodies and sung with an open and honest conviction that reflects the experiences that inform her words... Stodart's album is a thing of perfection" - Folk Radio UK
