Sugar Dirt and Sand

Thursday, March 17
8:00PM - 8:40PM


Listen to Somewhere Out In Space

Based in Austin, TX, by way of Richmond, VA, Sugar Dirt and Sand is the musical culmination of the life of Mike McCabe. Powerful vocals and honest songwriting are the driving forces of Sugar Dirt and Sand’s musical splendor. By combining Motown vibes with his appreciation for the mystical folk stylings of early Van Morrison and Father John Misty, Mike strives to create relatable, heartfelt music that is a representation of the highs and lows of his own journey. Lost love, lasting nostalgia, and a want for a better life dominate these incredible songs. Sugar Dirt and Sand isn’t something that Mike McCabe does. Sugar Dirt and Sand is the physical embodiment of Mike’s internal dialogue. These songs are a peek into the mind of Mike McCabe, and they promise not to disappoint.
