Like the man himself, his music is charming, witty and authentic. His full disclosure style of writing makes for captivating material that varies from poetically clever to gracefully heartbreaking. Erenberg continually finds ways to reinvent the art of songwriting by expressing a mixture of honest lyrics, mesmerizing melodies and distinctive musical arrangements.
His band is a dream team of Winnipeg talent and has become renowned in the thick and eclectic Winnipeg music scene, performing frequently in town, most notably at treasured venues such as the Good Will Social Club and the Times Change(d) High & Lonesome Club.
After years of live performances with various groups, Micah released his debut album, Poor Mic’s Toe in the fall of 2016. The album is a refreshing cleanse of new music that showcases Erenberg’s aptitude for songwriting and the band’s formative musical collaboration. The lyrics are simultaneously sharp, clever and even hilarious without compromising depth. Each song offers a different perspective from Erenberg’s highly self-aware and crooked compass. The album is a mosaic of stories, thoughts and reflections about sleeping eternally, drinking with Jesus in Los Angeles, losing a toe to a lawnmower, kissing while smiling, drinking away the seven seas, and everything in between. He reflects on both the hilarity and misery of life in a highly accessible manner.
The band recently completed a 35-day tour of Canada and is now preparing to record a follow-up album for a busy 2017.
