Micah has been turning heads and drawing lofty comparisons on the heels of his debut release "Down Like Hail" in January, and is creating quite a restive anticipation with soulful performances all around California, including the 2011 Orange County Music Awards Live Showcase.

"Brown definitely has a deeply ingrained star quality that is evident to all of his loyal fans. No matter what Brown decides to do with his music, I have a feeling he is going to be hugely successful." (Nadia Noir - kroq.com)

Micah's music blends his early influences of blues and folk and fluidly invokes the sounds of So Cal that he was raised amongst and combines them with his love for Americana to create a unique, fresh, eclectic twist on the singer-songwriter sound.

"Although Brown has a modern, almost-folksy vocal styling, he balances out the well-pitched cool of his voice with scorching-hot guitar riffs reminiscent of Delta Blues greats Robert Johnson or John Lee Hooker." (kroq.com)

Micah co-produces and releases his solo project of original music with producer Lewis Richards (Sublime, Slightly Stoopid, Dirty Heads) from 17th Street Recording Studios in Costa Mesa. Mature beyond his years, Micah is an old soul and it is apparent in his heartfelt, genuine music, made for no better reason then to evoke a feeling and invite people into the moment. When Micah's feeling it, everyone's feeling it.

"...The vibe in the room was elevated with musical orgasms when half of the crowd sang the lyrics, “I’m going fishin’, won’t be missin’ none of your bitchin’” and clapped along with Brown as he ripped through the strings on his guitar like a beast." (Kacie Yoshida - Daily Titan)
