Micah Erenberg is a diversely talented multi-instrumentalist, songwriter, and recording artist from Matlock, Manitoba. Like the man himself, his music is charming, witty, and authentic. His full-disclosure style of writing makes for captivating material that varies from poetically clever to gracefully heartbreaking. Erenberg continually finds ways to reinvent the art of songwriting by expressing a mixture of honest lyrics, mesmerizing melodies, and distinctive musical arrangements. After years of live performances with various groups, Micah released his debut album, Poor Mic’s Toe, in the fall of 2016. The album is a refreshing cleanse of new music that showcases Erenberg’s aptitude for songwriting and his band’s formative musical collaboration. The lyrics are simultaneously sharp, clever, and even hilarious without compromising depth. The album is a mosaic of stories, thoughts, and reflections about sleeping eternally, losing a toe to a lawnmower, kissing while smiling, drinking away the seven seas, and everything in between. He reflects on both the hilarity and misery of life in a highly accessible manner.
