Glasgow-born, Toronto-based synthwave artist Michael Oakley launches new single ‘Is There Anybody Out There’

(Photo by Jon Simo) Something for the synthwave fans out there. Glasgow-born, Toronto-based Synthwave artist Michael Oakley has a new single out called “Is There Anybody Out There” which has been taken from his recently released album “Odyssey” out on NewRetroWave Records.

Michael Oakley was born in Glasgow, Scotland but moved to Los Angeles a few years ago before settling in Toronto, Canada. “Odyssey” is already his 3rd album after his 2017 debut “California” and his sophomore album, “Introspect”, released in 2019.

Here is his new single.



Since you’re here …

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
