Pop Star Plumber Michael Forsyth Scores UK iTunes Hit

Michael Forsyth, a Scottish plumber who released his own album independently, has watched it climb to no 1 on the UK iTunes chart.

30-year Forsyth had been working at his dad Colin’s plumbing business before his newfound pop success and now the business is reversed. Instead of working for his dad, his father Colin now works for Michael as his manager.

The career kick came when LA-based producer Danny Saber heard the music of Michael Forsyth and went to work on giving the Forsyth sound a Hollywood-sized polish. Forsyth was in good hands. Saber, the one-time bass player for Black Grape, produced the posthumous Michael Hutchence solo album and has worked with Alice Cooper, Ozzy Osbourne, The Rolling Stones and David Bowie. He also has an Australian connection, appearing on the 2000 release Jimmy Barnes ‘Love and Fear’.

As a result of the current momentum Michael has now put together the band The Amber Haze with Mark Johnston and Stephen Simpson and plans to take it to the USA.

Michael is working on his next album with Danny. ‘Escape The World’ is the first taste of his new music.
