A self-described military kid, Michaela Anne has moved beyond naval bases and barracks to become one of the most-recognizable alt-country singer/songwriters in, of all places, Brooklyn, NY. A former unhappy jazz student with a passion for Patsy Cline and Otis Redding, Michaela Anne has claimed her place among singers who go their own way, looking to the timeless with little regard for passing trends and current zeitgeist.
It isn’t easy moving from place to place - switching bedrooms, finding new friends, and never having a clear answer to “Where’s home?” Yet no matter where you are, there are chords to be played and a song to be sung, and it was music that provided solace and a constant companion during Michaela’s nomadic childhood. While studying jazz she discovered her love of country music – and her true calling - at 21 when her path crossed that of bluegrass musician Michael Daves. Finding her true voice in an unexpected genre, Michaela embarked on a journey that has led her across the United States playing her original songs alone and with her band.
