So … 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?)
