About Tunde Olaniran
Flint, Michigan native Tunde Olaniran’s work blends electronic beats and synthesizers with distorted guitars and unique samples. On occasion Olaniran features hard-edged bass reminiscent of U.K. grime. More than anything, his confident, socially conscious songs encourage individuality and nonconformity, and speak to those who feel marginalized by society. In 2003, he made it to the final 15 of the first annual Chicago Idol competition, during which Kanye West was present. Since then, Olaniran has toured across Europe and America, playing with artists including Robyn, Jahcoozi, Diplo, and fellow Michigan residents Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr.

About Dacia Bridges
Acoustic/Pop artist Dacia Bridges is a powerhouse vocalist cited by some as reminiscent of Tina Turner, as well as an accomplished songwriter and performer. From the age of five on she has been gracing the stage not only as a singer, but also as a professional dancer, choreographer, and model.

Performances are held outdoors on the Museum Terrace and will take place rain or shine. For more information, please contact pr@artmuseumgr.org or 616.831.2917
