Elijah Drop Your Gun (And Grab A Bat!) DVI Podcast 078 - Mieka Pauley

Singing The National Anthem at Fenway has just got to be the biggest thrill a singer can have. (OK, insert your favorite stadium in there then...) I had plenty of other pictures to choose from, but when I saw this one, I couldn't resist.

My guest this week is indie singer/songwriter Mieka Pauley, from Cambridge Massachusetts. Mieka follows her own vision for her music with her soul / blues / rock / acoustic / alternative style. She is the winner of the first ever Starbucks Emerging Artist Award, the Rocky Mountain Folks Festival Songwriter Showcase and the Rock Boat / BMI Song Contest. She has played more than 700 live club, festival and college shows criss-crossing the country in the past five years. Her new album, Elijah Drop Your Gun, was released independently by Mieka in November of 2007, and was entirely funded by fans.

Check out one of her most recent Myspace Blog entries, where she has a link for you to vote for her. She is nominated for Best Female Performer in the Campus Activities Magazine Reader's Choice Awards.

Check her out at her MYSPACE PAGE.
