East Jordan, Michigan's Breathe Owl Breathe is new folk gold. Singer Micah Middaugh drummer Trevor Hobbs and cello/ vocalist Andrea Moreno-Beals craft some pretty sweet melodies. The band was formed in 2004 when Andrea had just finished her sixth week at Oberlin College, where she met Micah at a Dairy Queen in Northern Michigan. Being the academic she is, she dropped out, and holed herself up with Middaugh and now-bandmate Trevor Hobbs in what they call “magic central,” a small log cabin commune in the Michigan woods.
Dogwalkers and Dragon come off their most recent album Magic Central and Toboggan comes from their first full-length album Canadian Shield. Real solid tracks; working well with the Baltimore fall.
