“This is an inside/outside sound of dissidence or even rebellion, in its soft and inviting beauty, the power of love overcoming the love of power,” says Micah Gaugh.
Born in Panama, Micah Gaugh spent most of his adult life in the East Village, New York, leading him to many adventures through music and visual art. Other members of Micah Gaughs band are Kevin Shea, Henry Schroy and Leon Gruenbaum. Ahead of releasing this 13-song collection, Micah presented the first single from this album. ‘Remembering’ is a minimalistic, tranquil and spacious ballad resting on an underlying bed of jazz.
‘Stars Are a Harem’ is available for pre-order on Sê-lo Records Bandcamp, where Remembering is already streaming. The album includes a 14-page music booklet “13 piano pieces for children – Stars Are a Harem (Micah Gaugh)”, as well as a 13 piano song suite midi file for those wishing to remix, sample and loop.

LYRICS – ‘REMEMBERING’
Its so easy to sleep
as the flower falls from the tree
youre so lovely
and the breeze from the sea as the lake
flows by gently awe inspiring
you told me that I would be your Prince
that is left to happenstance
the fire that burned could be seen from across the street
we were camping slightly the moon
in your eyes disappears with the rain
I cant complain
in the tent we were ghost with a glow so absurd
my word graceful songbird
tried and true what were we supposed to do
what could we do with our time
