Micaela Kingslight, an American-born songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist has found her muse nestled amid the misty water and colourful vistas of the Olympic Peninsula in Washington State. Drawing from the deep well of her musical lineage, her creative wellspring flows with an array of influences from a love for folk music passed down from her parents, to blues, RnB, Soul, and now blended with medicine music from around the globe. Micaela possesses an innate ability to captivate audiences with the simplicity of a single melody or sway them with the infectious allure of harmonic resonance. Her artistic mission is rooted in the profound belief that music holds the power to both heal and unify, serving as a vessel for communal harmony and collective catharsis.
Predominantly self trained due to her learning style being different from traditional educational practices, Micaela taught herself through teaching others and her formative years were enriched by immersive experiences as a studio musician and instructor. Through her explorations, she imbibed a rich tapestry of diverse musical influences, enriching her own sonic tapestry with an eclectic blend of flavours and textures.
With two solo albums to her credit and a discography comprising four collaborative albums with the ensemble Fly Paper, and an album with Three Wheels Turning, her current trio with Samara Jade and Aimee Ringle. Micaela has carved a resolute niche for herself within the music industry, traversing the realms of solo artistry and collective creativity. Beyond her prowess as a performer, Micaela has begun the process of becoming a producer and engineer of her next album which is planned to be released in the spring of 2024.
Presently nestled in the serene embrace of Port Townsend, Washington, Micaela continues to inspire and impart her love for music as an instructor, helping students to open their voices through the transformative practice of Vocal Yoga. Moreover, she shares her expertise in guitar, bass, ukulele, and mandolin, nurturing a new generation of aspiring musicians, fostering a legacy of musical excellence and creative exploration.
