Rise (DJ Taz Rashid Remix) Streaming Now on Spotify, Apple Music and More!!!!
Posted // September 22nd, 2020

I’m totally excited to be releasing this brand new remix of RISE featuring one of my favorite downtempo and yoga music producer’s DJ Taz Rashid. It’s been almost three years since the release of the original “RISE” music video which brought over 1.2 million souls together to celebrate vulnerability. We are in a time of great divisiveness and I truly believe that the gift of vulnerability and song have the power to be the golden bridge that will unite all beings in this great awakening. My prayer is that we continue to wake up to the power within each of us. May we lay down our armor and connect heart to heart as we weave this new world together.

“We Are Safe” Is Out Now! Go Stream it!
Posted // August 21st, 2020

Dear Family,

When I wrote my new single “We Are Safe”, I was scared out of my wits.

This year like most everyone… I witnessed situations, events and traumatic images, both personally and globally, the magnitude of which I never could have ever before imagined.

There were too many moments to count when the world I woke up to became unrecognizable and looking very much like a nightmare.

In a time when myself and my closest friends and family felt most terrified, I finally reached a breaking point where I could no longer tolerate another moment of being suffocated by the fear that had consumed me.

While at the same time feeling so completely powerless, I wanted to take a stand and most sincerely try to at least make an attempt to contribute something to the planet that could be of help and assistance to those of us who wanted to regain and return to a place of strength within, self reliance, safety and healing from this avalanche of trauma both in the present and from the ghosts of my past unresolved that kept turning up in my psyche throughout this year like ghouls from a classic Stephen King horror novel.

I discovered there were many places in my being of grief from my childhood still unhealed. This year has unearthed and uprooted so much.

This song is a prayer, an affirmation, a mantra and ultimately a statement of hope. My wish for all of us, is that this song is of help during those isolating moments of fear, doubt, when it appears that all is lost and we may feel left alone where there is no where else to turn.

Ultimately this song is an anthem of Faith and the inner journey of developing the belief in the possibility of arriving at the moment where reconciliation within becomes reality.

Even as I share this and as the song is being released into the world, fires in California are raging… sacred land inhabited by some of my dearest friends and inspirational leaders of sacred music who have now been ordered to evacuate without any certainty that they will have a home to return to.

My heart continues to ache and it is only through my daily spiritual practice and my unwavering belief in the power of Music itself, that I haven’t broken to the point where I’ve become paralyzed/immobilized in the face of the year I never expected to find myself or any of us in.

Thank you for listening and receiving this music and whatever elixir it may contain for you. Please keep up the fight to keep your heart open, even in the moments where it feels and appears that that the world is conspiring to crush it. And know without a doubt that I am in your corner fighting along side with you, with the hope and the faith that we will ALL live to see the day arrive where we can be reunited together again and sing this song to each other.

I’ll look forward to meetIng you there and hearing how loud WE will sing.

From my heart to yours,

Mikey

Weaving Earth Festival Chapter 2: The Great Liberation
Posted // April 19th, 2020

Tomorrow I am hosting the second rendition of a brand new virtual music festival called: Weaving Earth Festival Chapter 2: The Great Liberation featuring: Mose, Marya Stark, Tubby Love & Amber Lily, Elijah Ray, George Bertelstein, Michael Brian Baker, Chava Mirel, Kayla Diana, Madhu Anziani and your truly.

About Weaving Earth Festival:
In this time of global reset we have the opportunity to actually create the ripples of change needed to sustain a healthy planet for the generations to come. Let us turn away from actions and ideas based on scarcity and fear. Now is the time to share ideas and inspiration to build a brighter future. One that acknowledges our intrinsic connection with EARTH and all beings living here. Plants, Animals, Human Beings are all connected and because of that we are all impacted by the great change sweeping through our global reality. The weaving Earth Festival invites us to share ideas of hope and inspiration featuring some of the most profound wisdom keepers and transformational musicians.

Chapter Two’s theme is The Great Liberation. My thought about this is that we are globally impacted by COVID and at the same time the fear. There is nothing wrong with fearing the virus as many in my community do. It’s a human emotion. In my Earth Based Torah class that I am participating in this semester, we have been studying the impact of plagues. In the story of Passover the”10 Plagues” was a time of great challenge for the Egyptians and at the same time these plagues were an act of liberation for the Israelites. I’ve been sitting with how I can honor what IS, and at the same time envision the way this virus is creating liberation for all people. I see this liberation creating new sustainable systems that truly hold all life being sacred and brought from the margins into the center.

Join us for our second Virtual Weaving Earth Festival on Sunday April 19th from 8:30am-8pm (PT). Each act will host their offering on their own Facebook Artist or Business pages. I play at 10am on my facebook artist page: Mikey Pauker Artist Page
See ya soon!!

“Miss You” And The Crazy Story Behind My New Single!
Posted // January 24th, 2020

NEW MUSIC Just Released: MISS YOU
A couple years ago during my day off from Flow Fest on the Big Island, I went swimming at Black Sand Beach. I journeyed to the waters edge and dipped my toes in the water. A rainbow came descended from the clouds to the horizon. I placed one foot in the ocean and I felt a hand grab my ankle and pull me in. I tried swimming back in. 5 minutes of panic and took my last breathe…………Tap. Tap. Tap on my chest…. I woke up on the beach to someone doing CPR on my heart. After meeting a friend who saw me on the beach I was reminded that I was supposed to make an offering to the water before getting in. I made an offering of shells to the ocean and sang at the oceans edge and the rainbow ascended.
When I share this song on the road and retell the story I usually can’t see a dry eye in the room. Some people have approached me after the show to say they witnessed me drown and also saw the rainbow. It’s not some silly folklore tale. For me “Miss You” is a song re-writing my trauma and transforming this traumatic experience into a love song. We don’t know what happens to the ones we love when they transition on. What if the ocean was my lost love who was pulling me out to be with her?
“Miss You” by Mikey Pauker, Brian Judah & Cas Haley
