Resident ATL folk-soul singer-songwriter Micah Dalton has reemerged with a new full length album. A departure from his previous records, Blue Frontier showcases Micah’s musical versatility yet still maintains the groovy undertones one would expect from a Micah Dalton record. From the bittersweet “The Way Our Seasons Change”, introspective “Eyes to See, Ears to Hear”, and soulish opening track “Bad Blood”, the songs of Blue Frontier are as accessible as they are thoughtful. We caught up with Micah before his show tonight at Eddie’s Attic. Here’s what he had to say:
What’s the first gig you ever attended?
Probably a gospel singer named Larnelle Harris when I was 10. I loved him.
What is the best gig that you ever played/performed?
They’ve always been the smaller ones. Probably The Masquerade (heaven) when I was 21 or so. It was just me and a guitar to about 20 people, but I was mixed perfectly. Right amount of reverb and compression on my vocal that really informed my performance.
What is the best gig you have ever seen?
Wow. This is tough. Probably Simon and Garfunkel at Phillips Arena. I saw Ryan Adams on his ‘Cold Roses’ tour twice and had a very college-aged experience with him and his music. Both (Ryan Adams) were great shows and more improvisational in a good way.
Gig you would most like to play?
Any gig with excellent sound to tons people who know and love my songs.
What would be the lineup for your dream gig?
Bill Withers, Bonnie Prince Billy, and Paul Simon 25 years ago all playing on each others’ sets!
Go see Micah Dalton TONIGHT May 11th at Eddie’s Attic
