Micah Olsan & the Many: All Around

Milwaukee musician Micah Olsan expanded his core trio to a quintet for his new EP All Around. The sound has gotten a bit fatter, but it's still about jazz rock guitar and blue-eyed soul vocals. Olsan walks the thin between between passion and pathos. He isn't afraid to bare his all in four originals and the Van Morrison cover The Way Young Lovers Do.

Whether he is getting in Trouble of gets tied up in a relationship (On a String), he can always can escape by way of his music, with his band covering his back.

Micah Olsan: guitar, lead vocals
Dan Alexander: keyboards
Cody Calderon: drums
Adam Dosemagen: bass
Eric Lemieux: guitar
