Summer is ending faster than it began and with only one month left, Summer Kicks only has a couple more shows.
The second last show will be on Wednesday August 10 and will be featuring 22 year old Michaul Rault.
“I began playing [guitar] when I was 11 or 12. I guess I was drawn to the instrument because it is the quintessential rock and roll instrument,” Rault said.
Michael Rault Band plays rock and roll and said that their concerts are about making people dance.
“…and hopefully getting pretty girls to dance. I want people to get into the groove and have fun.”
Rault has been playing in bands since the age of 15 and in those seven years has gotten Canada’s attention.
“Just through continuously putting out recordings, playing shows, putting bands together, playing solo and playing guitar in other people’s bands, I managed to get my music out to more and more people. Eventually I met the guys from Bedouin Soundclash and they released my last record on their new label Pirates Blend.”
North America isn’t Raults only venue though. Shows have been played in Europe as well, although the musician said he is still based in Edmonton.
“I like a lot of things about music, but I’m always inspired by my favourite blues and R&B singers because of the emotional impact they have on me. When one of their records gets played it totally changes the way I feel. I also like how magical it can be when a group of people get together and a good band starts to do their thing.” Rault’s tweener set will be played by Suzie Raudaschl and Jane Fearing. Raudaschl, a Golden local, has become well known in Golden for her talent. The young singer often plays with her mother Fearing and it is quite clear that the duo have embraced their family talent. Don’t miss the second last Summer Kicks Show of the summer. Come down to the Spirit Square on August 10 at 7 p.m. to hear Michaul Rault Band.
