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

Believe (KR3TURE Remix) Available on Spotify & Apple Music
Posted // February 23rd, 2019

It is with sincere gratitude that I announce the release of my new single Believe (KR3TURE Remix) via Spotify Apple Music and many more digital retailers. This track blends elements of deep bass, downtempo and folktronic music. Believe was inspired by the recent wave of wildfires and hurricanes that have affected and displaced the lives of millions of people all over the world. May our faith anchor us and serve as a sanctuary in these times of great change.

Bless
Mikey
