14. Michaela Anne – “Where Will I Be Found (Bonus Track)”
from: Bright Lights and the Fame / Kingswood Records / May 13, 2016
[Recorded at Farmland Studio in Nashville, the follow up to her 2014 album, Ease My Mind singer-songwriter Michaela Anne recently relocated from Brooklyn to Nashville, Bright Lights and the Fame was produced by Dan Knobler, a guitarist who’d often performed live with Michaela Anne. He had run the successful Mason Jar Music audio-video company in Brooklyn before opening his Gooseland Palace studio in Nashville, where the album was mixed. When it was time to start recording, Michaela Anne and her band mates worked together in one room, cutting basic tracks live at Farmland. Michaela Anne told writer Michael Hill,“I was in New York for ten years and I still feel like a New Yorker in many ways,” Michaela Anne admits, “but a lot of things about New York were stressful for me. A lot of my more introspective, self-reflecting songs probably dominated my records because that was what was dominating my mind. Moving to Nashville was kind of a dream experience, almost like I was experiencing my younger days. It’s such a vibrant, intimate and creative community. People actually want to get together and play music together every day and write songs. You go out and see the same friends you saw the night before. You start to get to know people. You go to a local bar and see the songwriters who wrote George Strait’s biggest hits or you run into Gillian Welch and Dave Rawlings. You can’t help but be inspired and changed.”]

Since the release of Who Walks In, When I Walk Out?, Julian and Seth Campbell on bass stumbled upon red hot fiddler’, Shannon O’Shea and quickly invited her to permanently round out the sound.
