In a contemporary independent music scene inundated with up and coming bands, it takes a unique outfit to break through that noise. A truly exceptional group must exhibit authenticity, raw talent, and electrifying chemistry. This, of course, means there are very few of them. Motherfolk, a band that started in 2013, is certainly one of those most unique and dynamic acts.

Motherfolk began as a collaborative effort between Nathan Dickerson and Bobby Paver, two college friends with a pechant for writing songs with one another. In the first year of the project, the two songwriters made frequent trips to Nashville to record their first endeavor. In 2014, their eponymous debut album showcased the duo's musical prowess through a genre-bending collection of elegantly crafted songs.

Since then, Karlie Dickerson, Clayton Allender, Joel Call, and Ethan Wescott have joined Motherfolk's ranks, and the band has made a name for themselves touring all across the nation. The outfit's high-energy live performaces have won over audiences from coast to coast, and their infectious musical persona has become one of the most exciting rising success stories in the indie scene.

In 2016, Motherfolk released their highly anticipated sophmore effort, 'Fold'. As the sextet embarks into 2017, they're aiming to continue their extensive touring schedule. Motherfolk's best days are ahead of them, and they're inviting all of their fans along for the ride.

Michigander (aka Jason Singer) is an indie rock act (originally formed in Kalamazoo) that has been gaining a lot of momentum after 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 over half a million plays since its release in 2016. Although the live show 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” which was premiered on DIY (UK) and featured on NPR’s World Cafe. Jason's latest single, 'Stolen' was featured on NME's New Music Monday. On top of single releases, Michigander has also recorded sessions with Audiotree, Daytrotter, and SoFar.

In the past few years, he and the band have shared bills with acts such as; Mt. Joy, Ra Ra Riot, Tokyo Police Club, Twin Peaks, and JR JR. As well as playing festivals alongside alt-J, Solange, Foster The People, Run The Jewels and Two Door Cinema Club. Michigander has toured all over the country (including a trip to SXSW) and has become a staple in the midwest.

In March 2018, Michigander released his debut EP titled “Midland”. The song Alice was premiered on NPR music.
In August of 2018, Jason released a new single and video for a new song called “Tunnel”
