"On her latest album, Bright Lights And The Fame, Michaela Anne works through weepers and hits the honky-tonks as every great country singer should. Song after song, her confidence and conviction shine through without casting a shadow on her craft." - NPR's Songs We Love, July 2016 (http://n.pr/2aZJPzJ)
"...a sweet, steady voice and a songwriter’s alert emotional intelligence, she’s a formalist but not inflexible — unbroken even when her songs run bleak or bittersweet" - New York Times, May 2016 (http://nyti.ms/2aU13kw)
"A collection of honky-tonkers and poignant ballads, the record evokes the country-rock sound of the Eagles and the emotional vocals of Linda Ronstadt and Emmylou Harris." - Rolling Stone, February 2016 (http://rol.st/1PFCJdU)
Upon releasing her 2014 album, Ease My Mind (Kingswood Records), singer-songwriter Michaela Anne garnered considerable acclaim for her introspective songwriting. The New York Times praised the “plain-spoken songs of romantic regret and small-town longing” and the Village Voice listed it among its Top 5 Country Albums of the year. Since then, however, this once-solitary diarist has transformed herself into a gregarious storyteller. Michaela Anne has discovered her inner extrovert.
Bright Lights and the Fame (Kingswood Records), recorded at Farmland Studio in Nashville, is full of sharp observations and easy wit, with several upbeat numbers tailor-made for the dance floor of the nearest honky-tonk. Bright Lights and the Fame clearly reflects Michaela Anne’s experience in Music City: It welcomes you in. Her work is candid and convivial, heartfelt and fun, like a night on the town or an intimate conversation with a friend. You’re definitely going to want to hang out a while.
