"Stero Stickman"

Making clear the distinction between that which is good, musically, and that which reaches just a little bit higher – Micah Woods’ single Fast Track is a song that feels like an immediate classic. Bringing together the smoothness of RnB, the excitement of well-structured pop, and the heartfelt honesty and passion of a genuine singer and songwriter, this release offers the perfect meeting between a whole bunch of elements that really make it shine.

From the offset, the song is enjoyable – simply put, you get a sense of something hopeful emerging; a delicate bit of musicianship and songwriting, a beautifully genuine leading vocal performance. As things progress though, particularly as the hook comes into play, the strength of the writing and the set-up really starts to make waves.

Micah Woods has an incredible singing voice, his ability to switch from the gentle, folk-like verses – these intimate whispers, as it were – to the full-throttle, emotionally resolving and intense choruses, is fantastic. The hook hits with the impact of a nineties showstopper, the key change and the delivery work flawlessly, and the contrast between this and the surrounding sections makes for something immensely satisfying and memorable. The later change to the new melodic flow for the middle-8 also offers something completely unexpected, which makes it all even more interesting.

Fast Track is a song that would play well within any sort of mainstream or independent setting. To break it down though, what you really get is this gorgeously organic fusion of the slightly country-inspired and the much more soul or RnB driven. The instrumentation feels very real, the whole thing appears as if it were being performed right there in the room with you. In addition, the lyrics seem unquestionably open and authentic – the artist’s truth comes through in every way. Great songwriting and a brilliant performance. Big things are on the way for Micah Woods. - Rebecca Cullen

"Brooklyn's New Star"

Brooklyn's New Star

A bartender at a hip new Brooklyn Bridge Park hotel became the venue's surprise star performer after picking up a guitar and astonishing his managers as they prepared to open. Micah Woods has since started performing sets in the lobby lounge of Barry Sternlicht's 1 Hotel Brooklyn Bridge. The hotel, which delayed opening after the area was flooded during Hurricane Sandy, also features a 2,800-square-foot bar with views of the Manhattan skyline, which will open to the public in May and looks set to be a hot summer venue. - The New York Post

"Micah Woods is the Soulful Singer-Songwriter We’ve All Been Waiting For"

Micah Woods is a new singer-songwriter from Brooklyn, NY who has just released his debut single “Fast Track.” Micah has written a beautiful folk song that explodes into an indie pop anthem by the chorus. This song also captures the wide range of style that he has vocally. He can do the folky-thing and he can belt like a Top 40 pop-star. His style of music is both soulful and soothing. “Fast Track” is a feel-good anthem that will be loved by just about anyone. - Rock The Pigeon


Still working on that hot first release.



Growing up in southern California wasn't easy for Micah: he felt left out and different because he was effeminate and cared more about music than sports. On his fifth birthday, a family friend gifted him LeAnn Rimes' Blue. That album gave him solace and helped him discover his passion for country and folk music. He began taking music lessons, listening to artists like Joni Mitchell, Tracy Chapman, Dolly Parton, and Lauryn Hill and realized that he wanted to be a performer. After graduating from the LA County High School for the Arts, he moved to Boston to study music. It was there he discovered his passion for songwriting, honed his craft and found his voice. He considers his music an Americana blend of pop, soul and country: focusing on how the lyrics
of a song tell a story that can connect people and incite change.
Since his move to Brooklyn, he has performed at some of the most iconic NYC venues including The Bowery Electric, Rockwood Music Hall, Fat Baby, and The Bitter End. After seeing one of his performances, The New York Post named him "Brooklyn's New Star!" and Micah was offered a residency at the 1 Hotel Brooklyn Bridge in Dumbo where he has had the opportunity to perform in front of artists like Shania Twain, Jake Owen, Shawn Mendes, Solange, and Travis Tritt.
