Music Choice of the Month 4/2018: Michigander
Michigander, aka Jason Singer, is an indie rock act originally formed in Kalamazoo that has been gaining a lot of momentum since the release of his debut single “Nineties.” The song has been featured on official Spotify playlists including Indie All Stars, Viral Hits, and Indie 2017, accumulating nearly a million plays since its release in 2016.
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 2014. In April 2017, Michigander released a new single titled “Fears” and in September of the same year released a second single titled “Stolen.” Michigander’s music has been featured on NPR, Paste, NME, Huffington Post, and DIY. Michigander has also recorded sessions with Audiotree, Daytrotter, and SoFar.
In the past few years, Michigander has shared bills with acts such as Ra Ra Riot, Tokyo Police Club, Twin Peaks, and Boy & Bear. He has also played festivals alongside alt-J, Solange, Foster The People, Run The Jewels, and Two Door Cinema Club. On top of that Michigander has toured all over the country (including a trip to SXSW) and has become a staple in the midwest music scene.
Jason’s debut EP, “Midland” was released on March 16th and was featured on NPR.
