Michael Peter Ball is the artist behind Foldinglights. Desperate to add some of his colours to the madness of this world, he writes with vulnerability, and straight from the heart honesty, about faith, love, death and everything in between. Hehas dedicated himself to crafting music that cuts straight to the centre of the soul.
Foldinglights is equally at home performing on the stages of music venues around his native Belfast as he is leading worship in his home church andhas performed with many artists including Martin Smith, Audrey Assadand Nathan Jess.
He played his first London show at Camden’s famous “Hawley Arms’ venue in March 2018 with Tina Boonstra, and since then has gone on to play many of the summer festivals including Summer Madnessand Creation Fest. The2017 EP ‘Exiles’ received glowing reviews with ‘Noose’ gainingairplay on BBC Radio Ulster, and ‘Fear The Night’ becoming a strong favourite on UCB radio while the video featured in heavy rotation on TBNUK’s television channel.
‘The title is a shortened version of Rosebud from Citizen Kane. If you’ve watched this movie then you’ll know it’s about man trying to find love and going about it in all the wrong ways.Everything is meaningless, unless we forfeit life to live.In the upside down world of Gods kingdom, when we give up everything we also gain everything.
This is where we find our identity. This is where we find that lovewe so desperately crave. Your value is seen through Christ crucified. We no longer need to search for life among the dead things of earth. Life and resurrection power flows through our veins because of Jesus sacrifice. This is the story of Roses.’
Roses was released May 17th 2019
