Michaela Anne & The Wild Hearts
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.
Michaela Anne has been building her name on the Americana circuit playing shows throughout the country, performing at Telluride Bluegrass Festival, Merlefest, SXSW, WDVX's Blue Plate Special, Folk Alliance International, AXS Live National Television as well as sharing the stage with notable bands and artists JP Harris & the Tough Choices, Steel Magnolias, Lydia Loveless, The Woes, Kristin Andreassen (Uncle Earl, Sometymes Why), Michael Daves (Chris Thile & Michael Daves) and Chris Eldridge (Punch Brothers) to name a few. She has been recognized in numerous prestigious songwriting competitions including Kerrville Folk Festival's New Folk Contest, Telluride Troubadour two years in a row and Merlefest's Chris Austin Songwriting Contest.
