..so return to the gold lawn

Last year when I was still doing photography I worked on a wedding with a local photographer here Nakesha Morgan and learned that she had a sister who was a musician.  I found her online and immediately loved her Far Field ep and had always just followed along to her updates.  When I launched Love❤Club, one of my goals was to collaborate and support artists of all types and luckily Sharaya was on board when I asked if she could contribute to our boxes.  Without hesitation she drove to my house and dropped off 150 cd's.  To say she is generous is just the tip of the iceberg.

Sharaya Mikael quit her day job less than a year ago, but the folk-pop, song/songwriter and guitarist has already created a buzz with her freewheeling approach to her career. Her 5- song EP, Far Field was independently released in 2010, and was featured on Portland’s KINK.FM as well as popular blog, Welcome Hohmes “Best of 2010” list. 

It sold over 2,000 copies, most of them at gigs on a marathon 50-state promotional tour. “The road trip was more of an experiment to see if I could survive on the road and still love it… after six months straight, I couldn’t imagine my life any other way” she says reminiscing on the not so distant past. 

In 2011 she made the move to Nashville TN, where she released her Rush EP and continues to tour incessantly, maintaining strong followings in Portland, OR and Atlanta, GA. Her songs have most recently been featured on  the WB’s new 90210 mini-drama and can be viewed via Netflix. 

Her clean voice & catchy melodies paired with intelligent lyrics & tranquil instrumentation make for tunes that you won’t mind having stuck in your head, as they surely will be upon a first listen.

To stay up to date on her summer tour make sure you follow along: facebook- twitter- web
