’Wasted Youth’ is about growing up as a teenager. Myself & my friends would meet up after school on a Friday and we’d all go to a hill & look over our town & see all the lights, play music, mess around and make the best memories.
Those were the best days of my life, so I just had to make a song about it! When we are young we are kind of like rebels, we have no fear or responsibilities, we live in the moment and that’s what I really wanted to capture in the lyrics of this song. Michael Rice is a 23 year old singer songwriter from the U.K. Michael’s early career started out with him being a busker performing on streets to passer by’s, but it was only when a video of him singing went viral across social media, that he was spotted & invited to audition for a new BBC singing show ‘All Together Now’.
