Growing up in Copenhagen, Michael Lington remembers the precise moment he decided he needed to
move to America if he was going to seriously pursue a career in music. He was still a budding musician at
the time, who loved several different genres: jazz, pop, R&B and more—as a young boy he’d even met
the American swing legend Benny Goodman. But it wasn’t until he was on the verge of turning 20 that
Lington—now recognized as one of the most creative and successful contemporary soul and jazz
saxophonists in the world—made his fateful decision. “I loved that contemporary sax was so versatile in
all styles of music: funk, jazz, R&B, pop,” Lington says, but soul music hit him most directly. “It’s hard to
describe why something in particular is meaningful to a person, but soul music spoke to me very early
on in my life—it’s just a feeling and reaction I had when I would hear it.” Michael Lington is releasing
Silver Lining, his 10th solo album, the follow-up to 2016’s critically acclaimed Second Nature. Silver
Lining features mostly original compositions by Lington and producer/co-arranger/keyboardist Barry
Eastmond, as well as a pair of stunning, choice covers. www.michaellington.com
