In times of artistic deprivation Singer Songwriter Micha Voigt recharches herself by picking up the guitar. A new song is born. “Turn your music on” reflects the current situation and is a tribute to music itself, written for all the people who belief in its power and magic. “Music can
support us, carry us and even heal us”, she says. “I understand it as my contribution in these pandemic times to give people a positive song, that reminds us of community and togetherness. With
the hope of dance and encounters, joy and friends.”
She is now and as always, accompanied by her long time and faithful Duo Melanie Kraus (Cello) and Matthias Haupt (Guitar, Vocals).
No Snakes In Heaven, whose head Micha Voigt is, reflects the life of an all-rounder, who composes and arranges her own songs and records and mixes her own albums.
Now and as always, accompanied by her long time and faithful Duo Melanie Kraus (Cello) and Matthias Haupt (Guitar,Vocals), her fourth album „Blue sky“ has come to fruitian and has taken on a more rockier approach to what, until now has been a laid back acoustic ensemble. Without sacrifing their strong albeit leisurely tones and tunes, this new work is both: tense and exiting. Even refreshing.
For „Blue sky“ Micha worked in collaboration with drummer and sound engineer Uli Wortmann at his Studio in Bremen. There is also a stronger presence of guitarist Matthias Haupt as Songwriter here.
Album Review Folkworld 3/2019
This band creates one of the steadier albums of roots indie folk rock that I have heard in a while. I suppose they are akin to the Cowboy Junkies, although a bit breezier at times. Not that they
are without emotional depth, but it is a mannered thoughtful approach. The album will creep up on you over time and is probably worth a few more listens to fully ferret out the depths
