We highlighted Ohly back in March when they were gearing up for their new album and since then they’ve been sure to provide their fans with fun, live music. The group released their new single, “University,” back in March and are putting their finishing touches on their new album due out soon. The band is constantly posting updates on new music, new covers, and performances on their Facebook page, so be sure to check that out!

Jackamo

Inspired by acts such as The Lumineers and Fleetwood Mac, Jackamo has been bringing fresh folk music to Metro Detroit. The group performed with Ohly last week as part of Dessert Oasis’ Coffee Shop from Home livestream music event. The trio also posts covers and mashups on their Instagram page and routinely goes live with at home concerts on their Facebook page.

Levi Bootcut

Lake Orion’s Levi Bootcut blends country, rock, and soul in what he describes as “Roots Rock” music. The energetic performer has been putting on live shows from his home featuring covers and new takes on his music. You can find his debut EP, “The Straight Legs,” on Amazon Music, iTunes, Spotify, and SoundCloud.

Treeskin

Treeskin, Detroit’s emo-folk outfit featuring Michael Dause, is hard at work promoting their new album, “Learning.” The group recently took part in the Michigan Music Alliance’s “Spread the Music Virtual Music Festival” and performed many of their new songs. You can find their album on the band’s BandCamp page.

Michigan Music Alliance

The Michigan Music Alliance supports the Michigan music industry across the state, and has especially done so during the Coronavirus pandemic. They have hosted numerous livestream music events and will continue to do so over the next few weeks. It’s a great opportunity to check out and support local artists during this difficult time and you can watch past performances on their Facebook page.
