Mountain Stage Staff Picks: Mieka Pauley Plays "Wreck"

Josh Saul

Earlier in the year, Mountain Stage staffers each picked a single performance to be featured as bonus content on the "best of" USB drives that are given away as pledge premiums. Associate Producer Jeff Shirley chose "Wreck" by singer-songwriter Mieka Pauley:

I have always appreciated songwriters that can paint a vivid character in three and a half minutes.  Mieka shows off her ability to do that in "Wreck.”  It does not take long to get to know the protagonist in this one. And as a listener, you have to decide for yourself  if you sympathize, empathize, or despise her – Mieka doesn't make the choice for you. I like that. -Jeff Shirley

Meika's full performance can be downloaded right now via the Mountain Stage Archives.
