DESERT DOVE // Available NOW!!!


For every artist, every record is a journey. The time it takes to write the songs, then figure out how and who to record with, actually do the recording, then package, promote, release....all the steps it takes to get it out into the world to share....It’s a specific span or moment of time for us. Desert Dove is a rather significant one for me - this record feels the closest I’ve come to really sharing my innermost self and experiences. The good, the bad, the beautiful, the ugly. It’s kind of terrifying. And exciting. I hope you listen and find yourself in some of these songs. I hope they provide comfort, joy, entertainment and catharsis.

Thank you,

Michaela Anne

Latest single // "I'm Not The Fire" premiered by Paste

“I’m Not the Fire” was premiered today by Paste magazine!

I wrote this song with Jamie Kent several years ago and am so excited to finally share it. It was one of the first ones we recorded and Brian Whelan’s guitar/ background vocals make me so happy. I love singing it because the lyrics are like a daily mantra to myself. We are more responsible for our own happiness than we like to think. Head here to listen to the full song and sing along with the little lyric video made by Derek Eads and Lauren Balthrop.

New Single // Video premiere // Desert Dove coming 9/27

I am thrilled to announce that Desert Dove, my first album as a Yep Roc Records artist, is set for release on September 27, 2019, AND that the first single, "By Our Design" is out today! 

Rolling Stone was kind enough to premiere the video alongside the single! They called the song a "gorgeous meditation on taking the road not taken," and said, "it sounds like it mixes a bit of Laurel Canyon dust into that Tennessee soil." Check out the Rolling Stone article here.

I can't wait for you to hear Desert Dove! This record has been a long time in the making. Head here if you are interested in pre-ordering! Thanks for all of your support along the way.

End of Year Note


2018 has been a significant time for nurturing creation and creativity. I feel privileged to have gotten to spend another year making and sharing music.

I can’t wait to get back on the road and hope to see you at a show! Best wishes, happy new year and thanks for reading!
