The Artist: Brooklyn folk artist Michaela Anne
The Album: Ease My Mind
Fun Fact: Anne has earned high marks in several songwriters’ competitions, including the Kerrville Folk Festival’s New Folk Contest and Merlefest’s Chris Austin Songwriting Contest.
Songwriter Says: “I titled this record Ease My Mind because in a way I think every song on this record is trying to do that. Whether the song is more about a relationship with a lover, a job or yourself, all of the songs have this theme of growing and trying to make sense of it all, if that’s ever possible. The goal was for the arrangements and production to feel modern but inspired by classic country or Americana/folk records that always feel so good and healing to put on while driving down a highway or country road.”
