I checked out an ‘open mic’ event a couple of weeks ago where I witnessed raw talent in the making., and was extremely impressed when I sat next to a pretty young woman fiddling around with her guitar. Her mannerism is what impressed me, then I was blown away after she performed.
For the sake of being careful and not revealing too much, she introduced herself as Michi Egger, a guitarist/singer/songwriter, who lives in the NYC area. A native of Pennsylvania, who began studying music at the age of five and as an eleven year old, began working professionally as a jazz/blues guitarist.
Michiko Egger released her first CD of original songs when she was sixteen. She is a BMI artist and has her own publishing company, Candygirl Music. Her music is currently being played on radio stations around Pennsylvania. Her fourth studio album, Castles in the Air, is due out in July 2014.
I think that my music is sort of a window into my life, or into my head. If you want to know me for who I really am, just listen.”
