To Create is to Heal | An Interview With Sara Tea


Mike Merucci, Host of The Afterglow

Sara Tea is a multi-genre, multi-faceted artist who has lived all over the United States, but her heart resides in Michigan. Peering through the cracks of her newest EP, Songs for Discarded Souls, is that inimitable Midwestern spirit: the stuff of long winters, endless highways and glowing rust. 

We are nothing if not our experiences. We are nothing if not our memories. We are nothing if not always healing and learning. Sara Tea knows this more than most could ever understand. Mike Merucci, host of The Afterglow at WDBM, was lucky enough to have conversed with her about Songs for Discarded Souls, inclusivity in music, the magic of libraries, the Midwest’s complicated beauty and much more.
