All music is folk music. I ain’t never heard a horse sing a song.
— Louis Armstrong

For the past 15 years Micah Cadwell has been a fixture in the Atlanta music community. He has performed at countless events, in countless venues, and with a veritable “who’s who” of the country’s finest musicians. While primarily a jazz musician, he has had the opportunity to record and perform with many wonderful Americana musicians, folk bands, singer/songwriters, and Western Swing groups. 

In 2013, he released the project entitled Honawolf. This project, which he co-produced with Steve Rieck, allowed him to explore different musical instruments and recording techniques.  He co-wrote, sang and played all guitars on the album; in addition, he also played Dobro, mandolin, piano, and ukulele on the record. 

 Micah is also the lead guitarist with the Atlanta-based rockabilly band, Cigar Store Indians. The band has released 4 albums and has toured all across the United States and Europe.

In 2017, he and his writing partner were asked to contribute original music to the motion picture “Interviewing Monsters”.

Currently, he can be found performing and recording throughout the southeast with many different groups and musicians. Most recently, he has played on and produced albums for musicians such as Gwen Hughes, Lexi Street, and Papa Jack Couch.

In addition to performance, Micah also maintains an active teaching schedule. His teaching focuses mainly on jazz, western swing, folk, country, and songwriting.
