Former Nylon on Tour with Jazz pianist Holly Arsenault! Returning to the jazz oriented songwriting of his earlier years has resulted in a series of critically acclaimed solo recordings for Micah Barnes. Micah's latest collection "New York Stories" pays homage to the rich musical history of the Big Apple with songs that describe a long distance romance using the rhythms of the Cotton Club, the Brill Building, The Apollo Theatre and classic Broadway. The recordings are stripped down in classic jazz style with Micah at the piano performing live off the floor with his trio featuring Daniel Barnes on drums and Russ Boswell on bass. On this recording The Micah Barnes Trio is joined by special guest Michael Shand on keys and features a duet with the legendary Jackie Richardson. The results are an assured collection of deeply personal and sophisticated songs that remind us that the deepest of musical traditions are always contemporary. The first single "New York Story" shot to the top of the Jazz charts in both Canada and the USA and resulted in Micah being named the Toronto Indie Awards best Jazz Act of 2014. Holly Arsenault

The piano has been Holly's favourite toy since the ripe old age of 4 when she came upon the tired old upright at her grandmother's house in Cape Breton. In the years since, she has traveled the globe as a pit musician, music director, sideman, soloist and leader of her own trio . These days, Holly lives and plays in Halifax, Nova Scotia, with forays into the wider world as opportunities and adventures beckon . . .
