Miya Folick’s “Trouble Adjusting”

This one came up in the same Discover Weekly as Royal Thunder, but it took me a minute to circle back and listen to the rest of “Give It To Me”, another one that snuck past me in 2017.

Miya Folick makes music that reminds me of the 1990s in the best way. (Hopefully, if she ever reads this, she takes that as the high compliment it’s meant as here. A lot of people try, but it’s not easy to evoke that vibe and also do it really well.) She’s got solid range both vocally and stylistically, and her approach to songwriting is honest and unafraid. Start with “Trouble Adjusting”, as I did, and then make your way around (There are two EPs and a couple of singles on Spotify; if you’re not a Spotify person, her music’s on Bandcamp as well…).
