Michigander (aka Jason Singer) is an indie rock act from west Michigan that has been gaining a lot of momentum after the release of his debut single “Nineties”. The song is in regular rotation on dozens of college radio stations around the country, and has been featured on official Spotify playlists including "Indie All Stars" and "Viral Hits" accumulating over 500,000 plays since its release. Although live shows and recordings consist of a full band, Michigander at its core is a solo project that has been built by Jason Singer since 2015. Jason has also recorded sessions with Audiotree, Daytrotter, and So Far. In April 2017 Michigander released a new single called ‘Fears” which was premiered on DIY (UK) and featured on NPR’s World Cafe.
In the past year, Michigander has performed with such acts as Ra Ra Riot, Tokyo Police Club, Twin Peaks and Boy & Bear. On top of that the band has been a key part of the up and coming midwest music scene, headlining packed out rooms all over Michigan. In addition Michigander has toured all over the midwest, east coast, and the south including a trip to SXSW. This year Jason and the band are set to play festivals alongside Alt-J, Solange, Foster the People, Solange, Run the Jewels and Two Door Cinema Club.
Petunia started out as John Ryan’s home recordings but has now morphed into a three piece rock’n’roll fun machine with brothers Nick and Ag Manta rounding out the rhythm section. The three lads recorded a new EP (out 12/1/17) called Dailies at Miner Street Recordings with producer Brian McTear and engineer Matt Poirier. It’s definitely music you can show your mom and/or roller skate to. That should be all you need to know. If anymore information is desired, please express concern.
Lawn Talk is a band of four friends - Rachie, Noah, Ethan and Angus - in Philadelphia. They all went to Wesleyan University, but never ever, ever played music together there. Rachie’s clean vocal melodies fold into indie-pop shimmers, contrasted by scuzzed out trances of screeches, hollers and feedback.
