Matter of Time
With a soothing voice reminiscent of the greats, Micah Dahlberg's storytelling songs are profound and revealing. His smooth and soulful music displays a powerful elegance rarely heard in today's top artists - and his unforgettable songwriting conjures simple beauty and truth. Texas-born and California-raised in a family of artists, Dahlberg values honesty in his art, rather than chasing the pendulum of current trends. This is refreshingly apparent in his debut record's track, 'Poetry in Sand" as it embraces the unexpected turns of life and points to 'hope in things unseen.' Other songs like 'Eighth Wonder,' 'Jane,' and 'Matter of Time,' revolve around the ups and downs that only love can bring. When accused of a preference for writing love songs, Micah responds with simply this: 'Yes, most of them are. What else is there? Aren't all songs love songs in one way or another?' Still, diversity prevails as songs like 'Red Light' and 'What Am I' disclose a genius mixture of Micah's West Coast and Southern roots - unhindered in their soulful energy and narrative prose. Recorded in the hills of San Clemente, CA by producer Chris Hobson, Micah's debut record, Matter of Time, is energetic, accessible, and affecting. It is a mix of catchy acoustic arrangements rich in melody and texture; a beautiful invention of organic pop.
