An underdog dream from an underdog state. The product of restless feet and the need to say something. Michigander has been the toil and passion of Jason Singer since 2015. It's being built in basements and back rooms of churches and vans without mufflers. It's living on stages, floors, and in studios—sounding big and packing light. Michigander (aka Jason Singer) is an indie rock, act formed in Kalamazoo, 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 half a million plays since its release. Although live shows and recordings consist of a full band, Michigander at its core is a solo project. 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. Jason's latest single, 'Stolen' is set for release on 8/29.
