Micah, a singer/songwriter originally from Rochester, New York, brings a catchy sincerity into his songs. They’re colored by his contrasting sense of dynamics and emotive lyrics. He has recently released his new album, Micah Coast to Coast, on iTunes as he tours the East Coast.
The debut recording of Alex Brumel and Janel Elizabeth, The Mill Stone, features originals by both Brumel and Elizabeth arranged for a variety of musicians, from acoustic duets with a cellist to full-band performances. Combine this recording with Brumel’s third solo release, To Bring You Home (produced by drummer/writer Eric Novod and featuring ex-Dylan multi-instrumentalist David Mansfield) and Elizabeth’s debut jazz EP, Live at Ronnie Scott's, and the two are embarking on a musical journey that is bound to turn heads and raise eyebrows. Perhaps Brumel says it best: “Really, we’re just excited about what we’ve stumbled upon here, and in our own small way, we think we have something new and important to say. We just hope people enjoy it as much as we do.”
