Breathe Owl Breathe in Traverse City
Studio Anatomy show Aug. 20
By Ross Boissoneau | Aug. 14, 2021
The downtown Traverse City venue Studio Anatomy is welcoming the Michigan alt/acoustic trio Breathe Owl Breathe for a concert Aug. 20. The group formed 20 years ago when Micah Middaugh and Andrea Moreno-Beals were introduced by a mutual friend at an ice cream stand. Middaugh is a songwriter, vocalist, guitarist, and banjoist, while cellist Moreno-Beals had been offered music scholarships at several colleges but had tired of the restrictions of classical music. The two connected musically, and Breathe Owl Breathe became a trio with the addition of percussionist Trevor Hobbes. The band has since grown into a popular attraction on both the folk and indie scenes while stretching beyond those boundaries, moving into more atmospheric territory that showcases the musicians’ multi-instrumental abilities and soaring vocals. Tickets ($15, or $12 with a mixtape donation) for the 8pm show are available at Eugene’s Record Co-op or at www.studioanatomy.com. Masks are strongly encouraged.
