Mikayla McVey writes acid cowgirl music from the beating, blistered, blissed out heart of the West. Born in Virginia and raised up in the holy golden Northern California hills, McVey has made homes in rural South America, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, and the 35ft cavern of a 1986 International School bus named Splendor. Music is always home and probably her best hope for giving beauty back to the world.
Holy Golden is Mikayla's debut studio release and a collaboration with friend and fellow space traveler James Wallace (SKYWAY MAN). While the record takes its name from the holy golden lonely mess of her home state, the songs on this little 10-inch criss cross our big/broken/beautiful nation from New York and New Orleans to Mono Lake and Lake Michigan. Recorded to tape in West Oakland and West Nashville, it aims to bring you in very close... and send you all the way out on a beam of light or a strong wind.
