Micah and Michelle

Micah | MichelleSo … my daughter-in-law grew up in a church where this girl Michelle sang in the praise band. Michelle married Micah, and they’re cutting a Christian album. And my daughter-in-law thinks I ought to plug their music here at OneInJesus, because I “mention music a lot.”

And family vacation is on the horizon, I’ll be spending a whole week with my daughter-in-law, and I won’t be able to face her unless I plug Micah and Michelle. They are hereby plugged.

Okay, here’s the straight story. Michelle has a voice like butter on a biscuit. If that’s not a clear enough metaphor, well, it’s right, and if you’ll listen, you’ll agree.

The songs are simply arranged (which I like a lot), and the music is low key. It’s a bit like the Civil Wars, but thoroughly Christian and not as blue. But the vibe is similar– with sweet male/female harmonies, introspective lyrics, and a dollop of melancholy. I like it a lot.

The album is scheduled for release in late August. There are four songs available for a free listen on their Facebook page. You’ll find yourself humming “Undivided” tomorrow. (I wonder if they have a four-part harmony arrangement — maybe with shaped notes?)

    hahah I believe what I said was “no pressure” and “pass it on if you like it”! You are making me out into this terribly pushy person you know;) But, glad you liked it, hope others will take a a listen and maybe even buy the cd when it comes out! I agree, she does have a voice “like butter on a biscuit”! Thanks!

    What a great piece of music. They could play in our church any time but I might have to have a bevy of ambulances stand by to take the older people out…ha

    I believe we are accepting this type of presentation of hymns and spiritual songs more and more.

    Our church has several members that go to the nursing homes twice a week. We sing the old traditional songs with a piano and three guitars. .

    Very lovely, the words and music point to our Father! Congrats, Jay, you can proudly point us (again) to what encourages us, build us up, gives us hope, and tunes our heart towards home…..

    I give thanks to Him that He is raising up new generations with new song, hymns, and music to bless my brothers and sisters. I see an outpouring of the Spirit on our sons and daughters.

    And by the way, they don’t even understand the issues that have divided and held back our witness to the world.

    That is the best part…..
