ABOUT THE ARTISTS
MICHELLE J. RODRIGUEZ is a performer, songwriter, musical theater composer/lyricist and actor. Ms. Rodriguez is a Van Lier Fellow at Ars Nova, a member of their 2020 Makers Lab and recently toured her show “MICHA MÚSICA: In Transit” in collaboration with The Mobile Unit and Joe’s Pub. She is currently under commission by The Public Theater for a new musical for their Mobile Unit program. With a voice that is “clear and compelling” and a sound that features “flourishes of bolero, bossa nova and even jazz” (Chicago Tribune), Ms. Rodriguez sings and writes music that shakes your heart and reminds you of home in all its forms. Her music project MICHA became a finalist for NPR’s 2018 Tiny Desk Contest with her song “Nena Nena Nena,” praised for a “bilingual set spanning laid-back southern soul and Latin pop flare” (NPR). In her spare time, Ms. Rodriguez learns how to ride horses, and reads and dreams about surfing. BA Williams College. michamusica.com
