MICHA: (EP Release)
MICHA is the project of vocalist, songwriter, musical theater composer and actor Michelle J. Rodriguez. Born in Orlando, Florida to Puerto Rican parents and raised in Kirkland, Washington and Lexington, Kentucky, Rodriguez sings and writes songs that shake your heart and remind you of home. Reminiscent of a folksy Tina Turner, a laid-back Whitney Houston or an indie Selena, MICHA has captivated audiences at Joe's Pub (NYC), the Hideout, Steppenwolf and Salonathon in Chicago with her stunning vocals and vulnerability onstage. Rodriguez starred in her original bluegrass/folk musical, East o', West o'! at ANTFest at Ars Nova in New York City this past June, which earned her a mention in The New Yorker.
With her debut EP out in March, MICHA will take you on a visionary journey through her musings on the power of love over fear, all with powerful femme-centered vibes. This is an exciting chance to see MICHA in an intimate duo performance of original songs and old favorites in her two native languages, Spanish and English, with acclaimed guitarist Samuel Hasting.
DÉCIMA: Mexican-American Alternative Pop/R&B/Electronic singer-songwriter based in Chicago. She has gained local momentum with her ladyfinger EP released on March 2017. She demonstrates her experimentation with fresh sounds while finding new angles to blend her Mexican and American cultural influences with her theatrical performances.
