Following the release of her 2014 album, Ease My Mind, singer-songwriter Michaela Anne garnered considerable acclaim for her introspective songwriting. The New York Times praised its “plain-spoken songs of romantic regret and small-town longing,” while the Village Voice placed it among the Top 5 Country Albums of the Year. Since then, the once-solitary diarist has transformed herself into a gregarious storyteller: Michaela Anne has discovered her inner extrovert. Her latest release, Bright Lights and the Fame, recorded at Farmland Studio in Nashville, is full of sharp observations and easy wit, with several upbeat numbers tailor-made for the dance floor of your nearest honky-tonk. While there are also gentler, more personal aspects that recall her earlier work, Bright Lights and the Fame displays a newfound brashness, starting with the album’s cover image, in which Michaela Anne sports a bedazzled denim outfit, a vintage find that’s perfect for catching the spotlight.
