Mikaela Davis
Friday, Jan 10 7:00p
Stage One: Fairfield Theatre Company at StageOneFairfield, CT
One of the most unique artists touring today, Mikaela Davis takes an indie approach to the harp. Her compositions are dense, but never sprawling – fugal in the vein of Philip Glass, and transitional like Sufjan Stevens. Mikaela commands a chamber pop pallet and wields it well. Her Harp brings a unexpected voice to a genre dominated by the guitar. Mikaela Davis stretches the sonic border pretty far, plucking a symphony of sounds out of her instrument.

All in all picking the right weightlifting shoe is very important. Continue reading
