Alexa Delly

How do you know if you’re living your dream? Alexa defines it as being on stage. As a young girl, Alexa performed in choir and even as a soloist in small groups and quickly fell in love with music as an emotional escape. From then on, Alexa took every opportunity to perform and audition as she continues to do today. She learned how to play guitar at 15, but it wasn’t until 2013 when she began creating her first EP “Recover.” Since then, the obsession became passion, and passion drove her career. She plays all over Metro Detroit and continues to write and play original music to grow as an artist. She uses a pop singer/songwriter approach to her music and always incorporates her audience as part of the show. She describes her listeners as “part of the family.” Any moment on stage is a dream come true.

The Swift Brothers

Based out of Lansing, Michigan, Dan and Mark have a long musical history together. With over a decade of musical collaboration together, they formed The Swift Brothers in 2013 in an effort to create something different.  As long time friends, the duo felt like brothers. It was only natural that the new name should reflect that.  Not long after, their first single “Ordinary” was written.  Over the last few years, their sound has evolved and hesitantly hangs on to the “acoustic” label.  The Swift Brothers have created a unique and full sound that rivals many full sized bands. The Swift Brothers have appeared on local radio and podcasts and have been featured on the cover of Around the Sound magazine. They continue to gain attention and are definitely an act not to miss.
