Described by Micah himself as a “modern folk opera", this is the musically infallible troubadour's most varied, expansive & daring record to date.

The 14 tracks which make up 'The Holy Strangers' are at times sparse & haunting; at other times luscious, maybe even euphoric. From the Johnny Cash-style country of 'Lover’s Lane', to the album’s broad, spoken-word centrepiece 'Micah Book One', 'The Holy Strangers' truly covers a lot of ground over the course of its hour long running time but does so in a cohesive & effortless way that only Micah could pull off this convincingly. If you're yet to succumb to his charms but like Bill Callahan, Sun Kil Moon, Bonnie 'Prince' Billy, Phosphorescent or Jollie Holland, now's the time to hear his story & let him take you on a journey to all the strange & glorious places life can lead.
