Breathe Owl Breathe is an art-folk band birthed from the Michigan woods. They’ve released 7 records since 2004 encompassing everything from forest floor bears to ancient castles. According to their official bio, “the music of Breathe Owl Breathe has always been steeped in magic. Their songs seem to occupy that hazy space between wakefulness and dreaming—where the tangible, earthly world meets the transcendental. It’s been nearly a decade since this trio of friends began making music in a remote cabin tucked away in a Northern Michigan river valley, but despite the growth and experiences that have happened along the way—including recording five albums, releasing a children’s book, and logging several cross-country tours—the band’s sound is still deeply rooted in the mysticism, warmth and wide-eyed wonder that imbued their earliest songs. The band’s visual art plays as equally a prominent role as their music. Micah is a visual artist and print-maker, and is largely responsible for Breathe Owl Breathes aesthetic; often described as child-like, timeless and whimsical.”
