Mimi Arden's Album Release
Mimi Arden is a band fronted by Michelle Gaw, a singer/songwriter, with Lee Kolarik on drums and Joe Botta on bass from Cleveland, OH. The band recently launched a crowdfunding campaign and has spent the last seven months crafting and recording their debut album. The collection of songs on the record have been in the works for two years. Through a creative collaboration of reworking and refining each song, the music has taken new life. Each song tells a different story: heartbreak, rage, friendship, peace, and renewal. With roots in folk, rock, blues, and soul, Mimi Arden's debut album will be sonically rich, lyrically driven, and excitingly unique.
