Carefully plucked guitar melodies and slow vocals make Elephant Micah's Americana folk songs gently sleepy with an underlying intensity. It's the project of Indiana songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Joseph O'Connell, who has been making music for over 14 years with that moniker Elephant Micah, but during the day works as a folklorist. O'Connell documents culture in southern Indiana and throughout the Midwest region.
That background cannot help but influence his rich story songs, with which he creates his own folklore. That continues on Elephant Micah's latest, and 12th album, Where In Our Woods, a collection that showcases O'Connell's cultural observations. It's fantastic music steeped in mystique and fable-like quality.
Watch Elephant Micah perform "By The Canal" in the Soundcheck studio.
