Mixtape: New music from Lady Ace Boogie, Billy Strings, and Lipstick Jodi
Each month, Stateside checks in with John Sinkevics, the editor and publisher of Local Spins, a site that covers West Michigan’s music scene. Sinkevics discusses new artists, their backstories and what makes their music great.
This month, those artists were Lady Ace Boogie, a Grand Rapids-based rapper known for her “feel-good positivity"; Billy Strings, an energetic guitarist pushing the boundaries of bluegrass who hails from Ionia; and Lipstick Jodi, a “garage-rocking, indie, alt-pop” Grand Rapids band.
Listen above to hear the full conversation and get a taste of the music.
