It’s clear from the first listen that Micaiah Sawyer’s lifelong devotion is to music. Her folk-meets-blues style reveals a musical instinct that can’t be taught, but only uncovered. This distinct style pairs perfectly with lyrics that cut to the heart of an emotional restlessness recognizable to all. Exuberant, powerful vocals sail over intricate finger picked acoustic guitar to create a sonic experience much larger than its traditional singer-songwriter setup. If you want to see the future of folk music, look no further than Micaiah Sawyer!
