Though Micah has many other albums that precede this one, I'm especially excited about Blue Frontier. I've listened to the album at home, of course, as well as got a little live preview of a few songs at the Christmas show. I keep finding myself with the track, The Way Our Seasons Change, on repeat. Needless to say, Blue Frontier will undoubtedly be his best CD to date.
The official release date for Blue Frontier was on March 13, 2012. To kick off the release, Dalton hosted a CD release party last night at The Vinyl with live performances by the band, Shook Foil and singer-songwriter, Peter Groenwald. Another great collaboration that I was thrilled to be present for. Micah and his band took the stage at the end of the night, accompanied by The Shadowboxers and vocalist Molly Parden, performing some of his previous hits, as well as introducing us to the new musical stylings on his latest album. Funny, because even Micah said in his live performance that he's gotten a lot of positive feedback about The Way Our Seasons Change (the song I mentioned earlier), and that it seems to really resonate with people. I can relate. I couldn't help but notice the track, Bad Blood, off of Blue Frontier, was a crowd favorite-- myself included. I also loved how Micah, an Ohio native, threw in a little MoTown flair to some of his music (I'm a Detroit-born girl, so some MoTown flavor is always appreciated). After the performance, I bought the hard copy (because I still listen to CDs... I'm old school like that) of Peter Groenwald's EP, Sweet Science and of course, Micah's newest addition. You can purchase your own copy on iTunes, Amazon, or through his website listed below.

Ok, so my original plan did not include posting a video, unless I could find one of the songs from the new album (no success there), BUT I came across this at the last minute and it cracked me up. Thanks for the laugh, Micah! Check it out, folks.
