Despite the early success, Michael has looked back on how he developed his love for music.

He said: "It was my Nan who gave me my initial introduction to the music I like, she gave me a pile of CDs from the likes of David Bowie and The Rolling Stones.

"I was also given a guitar as a child so that music, along with the likes of Oasis and Razorlight, inspired me to pick it up and teach myself how to play.

Hartlepool musician Michael Gallagher has released his second single.

"I then started playing in local pubs, getting a bit of a fan base and it was this community awareness that led me to write new songs with honest and observant lyrics."

He added: “Lula is a tongue in cheek tale about a one-night stand – an observation of a late-night encounter that most people will relate to.

“I wrote it a couple of days before heading into the studio, I wanted to write a catchy pop song and this is what I came up with.”
