Event description
Michael Rider celebrates the release of their newest single with live performance and special guests!

About this event

Michael Rider celebrates the release of their new single, “Libra Season Boy." The song acts as the lead single from their new album expected to release in early 2022. The slow burning, torch song is inspired by the age old tale of two friends being in love while not being able to confront their feelings to one another. Michael remarks that the song is about “will power” and “manifestation” as we have free will to act or not act on our feelings. “In a society where people aren’t rewarded for following their emotions, I hope this song is a reminder to embrace those feelings and let them be a compass for your life.”

Informed by four years working with a myriad of producers on their last full length album, “Temptation” (2020), Rider opted to record with an intimate team: Brooklyn, pop artist, M The Myth, Voyager Sound Studio’s Nathan Feler and bassist/multi-instrumentalist, Richard L. Entrup. The recording of the new album was “intuitive, seamless, and the most fun” of any recording process resulting in a record that “made itself” in a span of six months. Virtually constructed over Zoom, the album marks as the first where Michael produced and recorded a large portion from their home studio in the upper east side.

Live performances by

Michael Rider

Michael is a pop singer/songwriter originally from Richmond, Virginia who migrated to New York city on an art scholarship to the School of Visual Arts. Initially releasing their debut album, “Lighthouse” in 2011, Rider finally felt kinship to other musicians when they played in the lower east side’s SideWalk Cafe, revered by the likes of Regina Spektor and The Moldy Peaches. Rider has used their education of “high brow” art combined with SideWalk’s anti-folk ethos to create a blend of genre-bending, introspective, pop music from the lens of a non-binary experience that is both danceable and dreamy.

M the Myth

M the Myth is a popstar revolutionizing live performance and paving the way for a new genre: Queer-Pop. Bright costumes, dramatic make-up, surreal visuals and heartfelt choreography bring an undeniable air of radiance to their stage. M the Myth was the recipient of the Stanford Alumni Artist Grant 2019 and The Brooklyn Arts Council's 2020 fund for Artists.

Emma Blue Jeans

Emma Blue Jeans (they/them) is a singer-songwriter and self-proclaimed freak. The Brooklyn based performer draws inspiration from obsessions, rotten brains, divorce, and radical acceptance. They released their first EP, "Youth Large," a passion project recorded in one night on a laptop with the weight of feeling like an oversized toddler in a young adult's body in April of 2020. They're an acting school drop out, occasional stand-up comedian, and most importantly an Auntie Em.
