In this episode, I chat with Michigander. Michigander emanates a magnetic Midwest spirit, delivering uplifting anthems, raised even higher by six-string fireworks, empowering lyrics, and understated arena ambition. Garnering 3 million-plus streams and the acclaim of NPR, Paste, NME, Metro Times and more by 2019, the sonic alter ego of Michigan native, singer, producer, and guitarist Jason Singer bottles the feeling of the region on the 2019 EP, Where Do We Go From Here [C3 Records]. Jason brought Michigander to life during 2014 while moving across his home state to Kalamazoo. In 2016 the independent single “Nineties” took off, claiming real estate on multiple major Spotify playlists and cracking 1 million streams on the platform. Betweenreleasing the 2018 Midland EP, the groupshared the stage with the likes of Ra Ra Ra Riot, Tokyo Police Club, Twin Peaks, and JR JR in addition to gracing the stages of festivals with alt-j, Solange, Foster The People, and Run The Jewels, to name a few. Signed to C3 Records, he recorded Where Do We Go From Here and expanded the sound in 2019 as illuminated on singlessuch as “Misery” and "Poplar", of which the later saw placements on Spotify's The New Alt, Fresh Finds, and Rock'n Vibes.
