Ohly Reflects on Challenges and Triumphs of Life in New LP “Miracle”

by | Aug 9, 2023 | Musicians

Christian Ohly is a storyteller, first and foremost. The Detroit-based indie folk singer-songwriter uses the framework of his songs to share a distinct and personal story. Everyone has loved and felt loss, and Ohly’s stories articulate what it’s like to be human – hopeful, troubling, confusing, romantic, and filled with all the weird details of life.

Miracle, the debut LP released August 4, 2023, finds Ohly sharing his own personal stories, observations, and insights on love, loss, nostalgia, and heartbreak. From intimate guitar strums to orchestral spectacles, Miracle reflects on the challenges and triumphs of life.

The strength of Ohly’s voice is anchored by lush production from Michigan producer John Katona, who worked closely with Ohly to create a cohesive, yet exploratory record that weaves together folk, indie rock, country, jazz, and even punk.

Ohly will be performing live at El Club Detroit on Friday September 8th at 7:00 pm. Tickets to the album release show can be purchased here.
