Check them out!
The High Strung – “Buried”
The High Strung gives you a perfect blend of rock harmonies and poppy undertones. Josh Malerman’s vocals are a treat to be heard. “Buried” has an ‘80s alternative pop-rock vibe. You may also remember The High Strung as the goofballs who left their tour bus at the footsteps of the entrance to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Check out more from them here!
Madonna – “Material Girl”
“Material Girl” was a single off of the chart-topping album “Like a Virgin.” The song received unbelievable attention around the world, making it one of the top singles of all time. Nearly 30 years later, it’s a no-brainer as to why Madonna is one of the world’s most well-known musicians. Check out more from her here!
Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr. – “Beautiful Dream”
The second album by Detroit superstars Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr. features everything from new wave-danceable tracks to ‘80s alternative to folk-rock. It’s powerful, catchy, and making a riot all across the U.S. Check out what’s next here!
ADULT – “Shake Your Head”
This electro-pop husband and wife duet band originally gained success by travelling around the United States playing smaller venues. The team, Adam Lee Miller and Nicola Kuperus, even started their own record label together – Ersatz Audio. They released most of their work independently; today they’re signed to Ann Arbor’s Ghostly International. Check them out here!
The Hounds Below – “Soaked In Gold”
The Hounds Below was formed following the break-up of The Von Bondies; Jason Stollsteimer, former front man of The Von Bondies, started recruiting members for a new project: The Hounds Below, and they’ve been causing quite the stir around Metro Detroit with their reinvented indie-rock sound.

Electric Lion Sound Wave Experiment – “Sun Gods”
Electric Lion Sound Wave Experiment is well ahead of their game. They expertly combine the best of electronic fadeouts and layer in a jazzy-rock tempo and grit on top. And they’re a sight to see live, so don’t miss your chance – check them out here!
Jet Rodriguez – “Just A Little Bit More”
This track is off of Jet Rodriguez’s first album, “Seven Hour Night Shifts.” Released when Jet Rodriguez was only a solo project, each song was written, recorded and produced by the lead singer, Cameron Navetta, when he was a mere 18 years old. Check it out here!

The Sights – “Bad Man”
The Sights’ lead guitarist and vocalist Eddie Baranek and bassist Mark Leahey have been playing music together since the age of 13. Since 1998, The Sights have released five albums – all that combine traditional rock with a ‘60s pop-flair. Check them out here!
The Muggs – “Home Free”
The Muggs have been playing local venues around Detroit for the past 10 years. They play a blues-rock that sounds like it’s straight from the ‘70s. Make sure you don’t miss their next show…find more information here!
