“I want my music to convey this sense of confidence that I hope to always carry with me and I think that every artist should carry with them.”
With a penchant for traditional folk-blues and his sights on world domination, Zander Melidis, better known as Zander Michigan has a certain gravitas when he talks about his music. He unabashedly holds himself among the ranks of Jack White, Phil Ochs and of course, Bob Dylan, and it’s not hard to see why. With songs like “Bathtub Gin” and “Cologne & Cigarettes“, Zander is leading the charge to bring folk-revival-revival into the age of rave. It’s one blues-man against the world with WDET’s Travis Wright.
