Mieka Pauley was a CATH favorite, "her voice ranges from haunting, delicate beauty to an explosion of shattering, soaring soul. Her lyrics bloom from a place of uncompromising honesty and raw emotion, aimed straight for the heart. At just 23, Mieka Pauley's songs are wise way beyond her years. Her roots are the blues, classic soul and R&B, rock and folk, and the result is a sound that blends and transcends these genres into a personal brand of pop music that is uniquely her own.
Billboard Magazine and the Boston Globe have compared her to everything from "a young Sarah McLachlan" to "Aretha in the husky vocal turns". But anyone who's seen her agrees on one thing: with a history of launching great artists such as Joan Baez, Bonnie Raitt, and Tracy Chapman, the clubs of Cambridge and streets of Harvard Square have once again produced the next unmistakable voice of a new generation."
Thanks to Robin Coleman who has found a home for many of the "CATH refugees". Lazy Daze is a new venue--please support them in their efforts to bring live original music to Indianapolis.

Enjoy the terrific music of Hal Gerard while shopping at the lovely and spacious Broad Ripple Farmers Market. I met Hal when he performed at the Midwest Music Summit last year. He was easily one of the best to play CATH. Throw some money in his hat and buy his CD, you won't regret it!
lll. 54th and Monon Art Fair
Saturday, June 18th
This free art fair is always fun. Lots of great local and regional art and complimentary hot dogs and lemonade. You'll find me at the MKNA booth selling our great new coffee table book highlighting the architecture of Meridian-Kessler and Home Tour tickets. I'm extra excited...this is the first year since the fair started that I'm not covered in poison ivy. Was that too much information?
Stop by and visit Funhouse Records. It's a terrific place chock-full of records, CD's and guitar goodness.
As always, thanks for supporting independent music and art!
