Mikaela DavisWednesday, July 30, 2014, 8:00 pm
Mikaela Davis is an indie harpist and singer-songwriter from Rochester, New York, who is known for her amazing YouTube covers of Sufjan Stevens' "Casimir Pulaski Day," which has received over 115,000 hits, and her cover of Elliott Smith's "Twilight," which has received close to 40,000 hits.
Davis tours solo or as a trio with Alex Coté on drums and percussion and Cian McCarthy on guitar and sitar. To date, she has had the pleasure of sharing the stage with indie rock artists My Brightest Diamond, Jukebox the Ghost, Filligar, and Indians, and was recently invited to perform at the 2013 Lilac Festival.
In 2012, Davis recorded, mixed, and mastered her self-titled debut album at Red Booth Recordings with owner and audio engineer Brian Moore, who describes her as "harp and voice with an eclectic instrument mix whipped into a melancholy lo-fi sound; an intricate balance of fluttering vocal folds and fingers on strings that blend effortlessly." Recently, Davis released the single, "Feels Like Forever," in support of her summer touring and will be returning to the studio this fall to work on a new EP with Brian Moore.
