Maygen Lacey is an accomplished, Midwest CMA nominated singer/songwriter with millions of streams on Spotify from listeners around the world. Noah Neumann is a wicked talented guitar virtuoso with a taste for Delta Blues. The combination of the two is Maygen & The Birdwatchers, an americana-soul experience you need to hear.
In many respects, Maygen and Noah couldn’t be more different. From upbringing and musical taste to physical location, there are few things these two agree on. The short list includes: sarcasm, the great outdoors, quality beer, and having a good ‘ol time. Maygen & Noah’s 2018 debut album, “The People We Don’t Choose,” drew on their distinctly different musical influences including Brandi Carlile, Florence + The Machine, and Balmorhea to create a listening experience that explored family, addiction, loss and navigating the people in their lives. With heartbreak and hope intertwined throughout, it was very well received. Its single, “Comeback” currently spins on local radio, including The Current’s Radio Heartland.
2020 sees the band adding to their line-up with Ethan Moravec (formerly of Sawtooth Brothers) on upright bass and vocal harmonies to further enhance their rootsy, americana sound. Maygen & Noah dive deep into history and tradition to bring classic sounds to a modern audience. Maygen & The Birdwatchers is sure to lift your spirits, get you swaying, and bring you closer to the music that connects us all. Best absorbed outdoors, where your thoughts have room to breathe.
