Rock & Pop, Seasonal Special Happenings

Mikaela Davis/Leah Lou & The 2 Left Shoes

When: Sat., Jan. 18, 8:30 p.m. 2014

Maybe “indie harpist from Rochester” isn’t the most enticing label; maybe it’s just right. Either way, a spin of Mikaela Davis’ latest EP, Fortune Teller, reveals a songwriter who can weave the gentle strings of the harp into upbeat indie pop tunes with aplomb. “I Wouldn’t” is a jaunty, lovely little tune. Davis’ harp seems to work simultaneously as a gliding background melody and as the centerpiece — the spotlit start of the song. By the time the EP concludes — after crossing through the fuzzy “Feels Like Forever” and landing the bubbly title track — there’s this overarching sense of having listened to something unique. Davis fits in nicely with the downtempo indie crowd, but she’s also staking out a path of her own. (Sandy)
