Additional Information

Alana Amram and the Rough Gems

Growing up in a military family, Michaela Anne lived as a modern day gypsy - traveling the American terrain as well as abroad. Always active musically, she picked up influences as diverse as the places she lived. Now planted firmly in Ditmas Park, Brooklyn, a neighborhood with an imagined taste of country life within the metropolis of New York City, she has found a home, and band.  Her songs weave stories of the hardships and pleasures in life, notably influenced by the American military family lifestyle. Blending country, blues and folk with heartfelt lyrics and a powerful vocal delivery, Michaela Anne evokes the ever-changing landscape of American life she witnessed firsthand. 
Michaela's debut album To Know Where, recorded by Jesse Lauter (The Low Anthem, Elvis Perkins), Diko Shoturma and Scott Kettner was self-released on April 5th, 2011.  To Know Where is a compilation of original songs inspired by her upbringing as a nomadic child of the U.S. Military. The album features accomplished New York-based musicians with an exemplary guitar and vocal performance by Bluegrass guitar maven Michael Daves (Steve Martin, Chris Thile, Rosanne Cash) on Taken Away and harmony vocals by Willie Nelson’s Farm Aid regular Jesse Lenat on the title track To Know Where to name a few.   To Know Where has already been garnering positive attention with recognition from Telluride Bluegrass Festival's 2011 Troubadour Contest as an honorable mention for songwriting and gaining traction in the Americana radio format.  The Record describes it as "Nine songs with uncommon clarity, vision and execution for someone just beginning her career....This is an album that never overstays it's welcome" and Common Folk Music describes the collection as "soul-searching songs that have a way of touching the spirit....emotional and angelic vocal delivery".
