"Water Bearer" is an ethereal masterpiece brought to life by Michelle Mandico

 Rarely does a song feel like a dream to me, but I definitely had to play "Water Bearer" twice to make sure I hadn't been transported to another world somewhere in the middle. The tone of Michelle Mandico's voice is soothing yet alert at the same time- it asks to be heard, but not in an intrusive way. With a subtle arrangement and a gorgeous video punctuated by natural scenery and some choreographed sections, "Water Bearer" is a wonderful artistic statement and we at the Deli can't wait for Mandico's full-length, which releases July 6th. Catch her live at City Winery on 6/25. -Geena Kloeppel
