North Hollywood’s Michelle Guerrero grew up in an adopted household, where she tinkered away on piano and guitar for more than a decade. The foundational early-twenties experience of finally meeting her birth father gave Guerrero the confidence to reinvent her musician side, and for the next five years she provided vocals and keys for indie R&B blenders Private Island.
Just this past summer Guerrero introduced the world to her ’70s-inspired alt-pop-rock solo project Michi, with the Minnie Riperton-evoking “Catch a Feeling”. More recently, Michi’s teamed up with Lorde/Miike Snow engineer Jacob Munk for her second single ever, one that puts the notorious L.A. smog to good use with hazy, Stevie Nicks vibes: “Still Feel U”!
