MIEKA PAULEY possesses a voice that flows like good whiskey and a frankness that makes Alanis Morissette look shy. She conjures up a sonic immediacy with the same masterful command as Ani DiFranco with driving, yearning melodies that stand alongside the work of Michelle Shocked, Neko Case and Emmylou Harris.

"My songs are like the actions that I can't really take." So says Mieka Pauley, a refreshingly candid artist whose vagabond background infuses The Science of Making Choices, her new full-length album released  June 2012.

Frequently moving about the country in her formative years, settling down, then uprooting and starting anew: No wonder her messages have a no-time-for-B.S. vibe. While her lyrics are startling"Never f*ck a woman that you don't love," "I promise this time I won't be a psycho," "I wanna wreck your home/I wanna get your husband alone"they're never vindictive. In fact, her confessions invite listeners to admit they share the same inner struggles and desires.

"A lot of it is true from the prospective of me thinking these things. It's all sh*t that I went through in my own head, like rocking in the corner," she says of her songs about retaliation ("First Stone," "Marked Man"), lust and envy ("Wreck"), desperation ("Another Go") and brokenhearted disgrace ("Never F*ck a Woman That You Don't Love"). "But I've never tried to kill a man or steal a husband," she laughs.

Pauley's career pursuits have helped her win prestigious competitions like Cosmopolitan's Fun Fearless Female Rock Star of the Year, the NEMO/Starbucks Songwriter Competition and the New York Songwriters Circle Songwriting Contest. She's shared stages with household names like Natasha Bedingfield, KT Tunstall, John Legend, Edwin McCain, Ben Kweller, Jason Mraz, Gavin DeGraw, the Black Eyed Peas and Citizen Cope while earning herself slots at must-see music events (Newport Folk Festival, South by Southwest, CMJ) and high-profile gigs like singing the national anthem at Red Sox games. She's also been featured on BBC London Radio, PRI's "Mountain Stage" and the music session blog Daytrotter.

Not content to wait for label backing, Pauley has self-released all of her work, which includes three other EPs and two full-length albums. For Science she's joined forces with PledgeMusic. Having worked with producer Geoff Stanfield (Firehorse, Sun Kil Moon) to create The Science of Making Choices, Pauley feels she's finally captured in the studio the same rawness she conjures when playing live. "It's finally like me making that alternative sound while still holding on to what makes my live solo show work. He was able to take that live vibe, that connection, and then put really sweet, respectful production behind it. I really love that Geoff was able to make it happen."

Mieka's song "Devil's Got My Secret" can heard in the movie Peace, Love and Misunderstanding, which stars Academy Award winner Jane Fonda, Oscar nominee Catherine Keener and Elizabeth Olsen.
