Michael Leonard Witham

Sat, April 28, Doors: 9:30 pm - Show: 10:00 pm - 21+ - $5  Artist Website
The Vaudeville Mews presents...
Like a story from the book of Half Japanese, Michael Leonard Witham began his life in music by finding a beaten up guitar in a dumpster one day not too long ago, and without any previous knowledge of how to play, he began to write songs, propelled solely upon a desire to make music. The production of A Scandal in the Violets is ragged yet warm and inviting like Bob Dylan's Blood on the Tracks. Witham has a wonderfully vulnerable voice, resembling artists like Feargal Sharkey or a slightly more stable Daniel Johnston. It creaks, cracks, shivers, and quivers, but it's not just endearing, it's downright addicting. I said he sounded more stable than Johnston, but only slightly, mind you. Paired with his voice, his lyrics are beautifully strange, and, on songs like "Oh the Evil!," verging on the schizophrenic. Like Johnston, he often writes of personal defects, and an overhanging evil in the embodiment of a vaguely intangible yet still physical entity.
