MICAH ERENBERG - “DO IT FOR LOVE”
LABEL : SLEEPLESS RECORDS
Micah Erenberg is a diversely talented multi-instrumentalist, songwriter and producer from Manitoba, Canada. 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.
“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.”
