Alexandra Maniak (aka Shortly) is pulled in many creative directions, but when she decided on music it was not long before audiences and record companies took notice

Shortly sat with WDET’s Ann Delisi to perform live and talk about everything from the shift in her creative energy when she moved to Detroit, sexual assault, and why she calls herself “Shortly”.
