The hardest thing to say is how you feel because then it becomes real. While Micah Erenberg knows the risk in wearing your heart on your sleeve, the 26-year-old understands the importance of a shared experience. One that can make someone feel brighter, understood, less alone. Love Is Gonna Find You is the songwriter’s highly anticipated second album, set to be released on October 4 via Sleepless Records. In 2019, Micah Erenberg is lifting his listeners into a sphere of delicate fulfillment, painting loneliness as a universal craving for human connection over his narratives of getting sober, rain soaked mornings and searching for something bigger than ourselves. 

Today, the Manitoban songwriter is sharing the new ASMR inspired video for “Just Who I Am” captured by Matt Williams in a hotel during a flight delay. “I’m glad Micah’s plane was delayed and we got to ride out the nor’easter making this disgusting video,” says Williams. “I never want to be forced to hear an entire juicy roast chicken get dropped on a hotel room table ever again. We must have done it a dozen times. The slap of its wet, naked self hitting that cheap wood is engraved on my brain now.”

On the song Erenberg says, “This tune is pretty much verbatim quotes from a text conversation I had with my friend Ellen. We were talking about our lives as artists and about how it’s hard not constantly reconsider everything that you’re doing. I hope this song can speak to folks who are struggling with self worth or worth of their work. It’s important to know that you’re never alone. We’re all struggling and we’re all making it work, together.

Also released today, is album cut “Sunspill”, a track that Erenberg wrote with Jicah in 2013. “They recorded a version of it back then and I kinda forgot about it until several years later when I decided to make a version of my own,” he says. “Over the years this song has changed as much in sound as it has in meaning to me. I’m really happy this version made it onto the album and I hope that it can mean something special to you, too.”

MORE ABOUT LOVE IS GONNA FIND YOU

Growing up in the very rural Manitoba, Erenberg gravitated towards music as a curious endeavour around the age of 9 when he first picked up a guitar. That soon turned into writing and recording and inevitably, tours followed and numerous band projects continued until, at the age of 20, he set out to do his own thing. Going it alone has allowed him to express an overlying message of love and positivity through his work and it’s on Love Is Gonna Find You that Erenberg has truly found his groove.

Lyrically, the album paints a scrambling collage of navigating the loss of love while also providing a rolling, self-effacing pep talk. With love, comes pain and Erenberg’s commentary on both simultaneously elevates the textures throughout. It’s a kaleidoscope of memories, merged together to push Erenberg out of the funk he’s found himself in to produce something ultimately positive and downright life-affirming. As he points out on opener, “Do It For Love”, live for the minute you came to this Earth and the minute you’ll leave, no matter how long those nights can feel.

Produced and recorded with Alexandre Bonenfant, the album was crafted in several studios between Toronto, Winnipeg, and Micah’s home town. Switching up the environments has manifested itself as a mirage of characters, ones that teeter on the soft focus of an acoustic guitar while others erupt into strange electronic soundscapes. There’s woozy harmonies, low croons and fervent choruses. Erenberg may revel in the gloom for a moment but it’s soon dispersed as the laugh of a friend echoes in between songs. It’s raw, it’s real and it’s full of heart.

Erenberg is an insatiably prolific songwriter. The process saw him having to sift through 80+ demos to make Love Is Gonna Find You – plus, those written during the actual recording process. The oldest song “Bored”, was written by Erenberg when he was 16. By selecting both old and new material, Love Is Gonna Find You captures the very specific feeling of memories that never quite leave, friends that seem to stick around and an overriding optimism despite the treacherous journey to make it to today. “This year I’m really turning my focusing my energy into getting my music into the hands of those who might need it,” Erenberg says. “I want to create a platform on which I can consistently release new music to the people who want to hear it. That’s the goal… if there are people out there who want to hear this kind of music, they deserve to have it.”

Earlier this year, the diversely talented multi-instrumentalist, songwriter, and producer Micah Erenberg signed to Sleepless Records and shared the video for “Somewhere Beyond The Ocean” directed by Colin Medley. Today, Erenberg returns with “Do It For Love”, a song which GigWise UK notes “Master songwriting and a devastating vocal take make this a standout ahead of his new LP."

“Do It For Love” is a song about the unlikely friendships that follow you throughout your whole life. “I had a friend when I was a kid who didn’t want to grow up,” says Erenberg. “And as we did he went through a lot of hard times. It wasn’t easy for him, but no matter what he always had a positive outlook on life. He was always able to turn a bad vibe into a good one; a great gift for such a young person. That’s kinda what the first verse is about. To this day he’s still an inspiration to my own growth.

Years later, I met this guy at a community house / artspace place in California. He really didn’t like me too much. Then one day I was playing some TVZ. It wasn’t long until we found out that we had a lot more in common than we thought. Over the next three months we ended up spending some of the greatest times of our lives together. And then I moved home and we thought we might never see each other again. Even then it’s a countdown to when you might meet up again...4 years later we’re playing a song about him in Minneapolis, and guess who walks in? That was a pretty special moment. Sometimes you don’t know who or what you’re waiting for and then it all comes pretty clear, pretty fast.”

Manitoba’s Erenberg lyrics are a mosaic of stories, thoughts, and reactions from small town, big ideas Canada; the land of few people and vast, flat, lake laden landscape. His music is charming, witty, and authentic. His full disclosure style of writing makes for captivating, poetic and gracefully heartbreaking songs that display an honesty and talent that doesn't take itself too seriously. Recently, Erenberg was nominated for a 2019 Western Canadian Music Award for Roots Solo Artist Of The Year.

“Somewhere Beyond The Ocean” Single Artwork // DOWNLOAD HIGH-RES

Micah Erenberg is a diversely talented multi-instrumentalist, songwriter and producer from Manitoba. His lyrics are a mosaic of stories, thoughts and reactions from small town, big ideas Canada; the land of few people and vast, flat, lake laden landscape. Erenberg's music is charming, witty, and authentic. His full disclosure style of writing makes for captivating, poetic and gracefully heartbreaking songs that display an honesty and talent that doesn't take itself too seriously.

Recently signed to Sleepless Records, today he shares the perfectly imperfect jam “Somewhere Beyond The Ocean” and the video created by Colin Medley featuring some of Manitoba’s most hidden gem locales and locals. Together, the song and video are a match made in Winnipeg winter heaven. For the video, “Colin wanted a diner, an industrial park and a toboggan hill,” says Erenberg. “The Oldie, Gimli Airport, and Pope’s Hill. We conjured up a group of lovely hooligans, embraced the cold and had a blast.”

"Sometimes it can feel like we're stuck in our lives, whether that's working a crummy job, or living in a country where it's cold most of the year,” says Medley. “With this video I wanted to show that there's always an escape, whether it's escaping into your own imagination or ditching work to go tobogganing with all your closest buddies."

“Where to begin,” says Erenberg of the track. “This is a song that I wrote almost ten years ago. I remember the house. I remember the party. I remember the reports of my friend getting knocked out after I left. I remember the face of the person who did it. Around that time, the opening lyrics described a lot of the people in my social circles, and probably myself more than I would like to admit. I wanted to write about the feeling you get when you step away from that lifestyle. Bad habits are still habits and its harder to walk away from them than it seems.”

Originally released as an acoustic version on one of Erenberg’s earlier DIY albums “Somewhere Beyond The Ocean” is now a rock song, but still features layers of the original recording from many years ago. The song’s meaning has also evolved over time. “I remember being asked the meaning of the closing lyric,” says Erenberg. “I had initially imagined it in a conversation between lovers and had never quite understood its placement. After being asked to explain it, I realized that it was more accurately describing a common situation in modern Social Justice. It wasn’t until then that I may have truly understood what the song meant to me. More likely is that I still do not know.”
