Michaela Anne Gets Moving on 'Desert Dove'
Michaela Anne grew up the daughter of a Navy officer. That means she moved around - a lot. In turn, that constant uprooting fuels some of the songs on her new album, 'Desert Dove.' She spoke with Eric Hodge about her upbringing and the process of recording the new album.
One of the themes she explores is constantly being on the move, both growing up and as a touring musician. On 'Child of the Wind' Michaela sings that her "home town was a back seat looking at highway signs."
"There's an element of sadness. I long focused on the sadness, but there's also a richness of, everywhere I go I know people."
'Desert Dove' is out now on Yep Roc Records.
