Writing, recording, and performing under the name of Michigander, Jason Singer’s dream to have his music heard on the radio came to fruition, exceeding all expectations.

have collectively earned Michigander over 12 million streams. Standouts
include “Misery,” “Nineties,” and current chart topper “Let Down.”

residing in Detroit with my new EP coming out. It’s really exciting to see.”
The songs, reflecting the fruits of his labor, earned him spots performing
alongside Mt. Joy, Hippo Campus and Sliversun Pickups. Michigander started
sharing the festival circuit with bands like The National, Foster the People,
Moon Taxi, and Alt-J. The wave of success stopped as the world shut down

off live,” Singer said. “This time, I didn’t care. I incorporated programming
and samples that went beyond being a rock band. I became more sure of who I am,
what I want to do with music, and how I want to go about it. I tried to be more
vulnerable and make something I’m very proud of. I got to add in everything I
always wanted to.”
