Micki Balder “A Feeling I Once Knew” – waiting for a great leap forward

Micki Balder has been a lindy hopper and a lifelong dabbler in music – but it wasn’t until 2018 that she developed a more solid association with song.  It was when a friendship’s moment of truth unveiled itself in the middle of a Denver coffee shop – she walked home, wrote a song, and has been writing ever since, and is now a regular at local music venues around her Colorado home.

‘A Feeling I Once Knew’ is like a memo to self to recall that things have not been this way forever: by things we mean the pandemic, and forever is just how it feels there really was a before time, and hopefully there will be an after time.  As Micki Balder says of the song “I started to feel restless, but also stagnant and lacking purpose. I yearned for this pre-pandemic time where everything felt great and busy and exciting and full of life but also felt torn between craving that old life, and needing major change.”

Sure, I could climb high in a tree, or go to Skye on my holiday. I could be happy. All I really want is the excitement of first hearing The Byrds, the amazement of decades of Dylan's music, or the thrill of seeing a band like The Long Ryders live. That's not much to ask, is it?
