Song: “Hearts on Fire”
Album: Coast to Coast
Rochester, New York’s native Micah has been honing his craft and performing live since he was sixteen years old. Shortly after graduating from Northeastern University’s Music Business program, he released his first full length album ‘Coast To Coast’ in 2010. While his feet are firmly planted in the singer/songwriter genre, Micah tends to elevate that label with the addition of arrangements that include more instrumentation than just a guy and his guitar.
His voice has a mellow, soulful quality that stands up well to ambitious arrangements and can also support the stripped-down acoustic songs on the record.
One of Micah’s songs that steps outside the expected mold of his genre is “Hearts on Fire”. The song is fun and upbeat, chronicling the stage of a relationship when everything is blissful. Micah implores the girl in question to just go with it and not over analyze everything. An insistent drumbeat and piano based melody round out the sound and help build a perfect summer driving song.
