MICHA
MICHA is the project of vocalist, songwriter, musical theater composer and actor Michelle J. Rodriguez. With a voice that is “clear and compelling” and a sound that features “flourishes of bolero, bossa nova and even jazz” (Chicago Tribune), MICHA has captivated audiences at Joe's Pub (NYC), the Hideout (Chicago), and Steppenwolf (Chicago) with her stunning vulnerability onstage. Beloved by NPR’s All Songs Considered team, MICHA became a finalist for NPR’s 2018 Tiny Desk Contest with her song “Nena Nena Nena,” a celebration of the power of Latinx femme friendship. MICHA played an opening set for Tiny Desk contest winner Naia Izumi’s tour stop in Chicago at the Lagunitas brewery in June and her “bilingual set spanned laid-back southern soul and Latin pop flare” (NPR). With her full band, MICHA will take you on a visionary journey through her musings on the power of love over fear, all with powerful femme-centered vibes.
