Breathe, Owl, Breathe

May 11th, 2025- 3:00pm

The Hawk Mainstage

This concert takes place at the Hawk Community Center located at 29995 W 12 Mile Road, Farmington Hills, MI 48334

Comprised of Micah Middaugh (guitar, vocals), Andréa Paz (cello, vocals) and Trevor Hobbs (percussion and keys), the trio Breathe Owl Breathe have a knack for wrapping universal emotions in childlike language. …There, by the heat of a wood stove, they honed their sound—a wild rumpus of harmony and rhythm. The band’s music is terrifically disarming, Middaugh’s cracked tenor ambling over acoustic guitars, Paz’s cello swooping in gracefully, like a warm breeze or a host of doves. While some peers have reveled in reinvigorating the old, weird side of Americana, Breathe Owl Breathe's flare for pop-addled melodies flips the contemporary folk aesthetic, eschewing freakiness in favor of charm. It’s a dynamic built on coupling clever arrangements with lyrical whimsy and a folklore that is otherworldly.

*Beer and wine will be available for patrons 21 years and above.
