MICHELLE - THE BOTTOM

MICHELLE is a R&B/indie pop collective hailing from NYC. Weaving in and out of R&B, 80’s synth pop, jazz and indie, with 70’s inspired basslines, driving drum beats, plush synths and enticing vocals, MICHELLE is solidifying itself as a part of a new wave of authentic New York R&B. This eclectic collective, based on production and arrangement by Julian Kaufman and Charlie Kilgore, with singers Jamee Lockard, Layla Kuriloff, Isa Reyes, Sofia D’Angelo, and Emma Lee is refreshingly full of queer + POC members, showcasing a new era of pop music. Written and recorded in Kaufman’s bedroom over the span of two weeks, their debut album HEATWAVE captures a collection of moments – snapshots of youth in a New York summer, all immediately recognizable to those who’ve lived them and those that have wished to.
