ABOUT

What I'm looking for:
1) a techno swing band that is looking for a singer/uke player
2) a couple of singer/musicians that would like to form a techno swing trio
3) People who are looking for singers to work on their one time or ongoing projects
4) One singer/songwriter/acoustic musical collaborator who'd like to work together and perform in the Tempe/Phoenix area
5) Cool musicians and/or singer/songwriters that want to collaborate on projects

How I see myself as an artist:
Micky Small invites you in with the infectiously warm smile of an old friend – sharing songs about life’s journey with all its twists and turns. Never taking herself too seriously, but seeking answers to the serious questions. With vibrant, witty lyrics and catchy melodies, Micky Small’s music is as passionate as it is perceptive. Mixing elements of folk-rock, blues, alternative, pieces of punk and splashes of whimsy,
Micky's vibrant vocals caress her audience with the reassuring touch of someone who’s lived through pain and come out stronger. Thought-provoking, yet playful, she challenges you to embrace life in all its colors and to always follow your own voice.
