Mickey the Jump Hollow Wood guests!
Named after the boxing champion persona of sleepwalking singer/songwriter Nate Berrian, Mickey the Jump creates indie/folk music that is at once inviting and unsettling. Ranging from two to six members at a time the band features friends who originally hail from Kentucky, Oregon, California, and Idaho who came together with their love of music and the fact that they all worked at the same coffee shop/ music venue in Nampa, Idaho. The rawness and immediacy of bands such as Neutral Milk Hotel and mewithoutYou comes through as the band explores with simplicity, yet mystery, the highs and lows of being alive. The band's current formation includes members taking turns at banjo, mandolin, acoustic and electric guitars, organ, accordion, bass, and drums. Foot stomping and hand clapping are hard to keep to yourself. The songs don't "tug" at any heart-strings, they grab and pull with no intention of relenting. Mickey the Jump is like what the kids are digging, except this has got soul. In just the past year Mickey the Jump has shared the stage with favorites such as; David Bazan, Wye Oak, The Head and the Heart, Vetiver, among others.
