The Music:
mdd_group1bwMy Dear Disco – Ann Arbor, Michigan’s My Dear Disco may call their track “For Your LoveDancethink Music, but I call it instant party. I haven’t wanted to dance this much since Junior Senior! Any song that can inspire a lifelong member of the wallflower club like me to bust a move is worth a listen.

l_8fe271d5b7a3ed5bdf89f31e29dabcf71Mason Proper – Mason Proper’s noisy pop has been burning up the OurStage charts since 2007. “Lock and Key” is a great piece of indie pop with soulful vocals over strong beats, jangly piano and electric guitar.

P.E.A.C.E. The Poetess – P.E.A.C.E. is the spoken Word category winner of the 2008 Detroit “Bring It” talent competition. Her powerful track “Music” speaks to the ability of music to both inspire and comfort. Think you don’t like poetry? Give P.E.A.C.E. a chance.

rqjdpoupytjn-320x240Petal Shop – Petal Shop combines the talents of Detroit folk/americana groups Sprout and The Lobiaurs. “Fake-A-Frown” is minimalist, modern folk with sweet boy-girl vocals.
