Welcome to Bayonet, Tasha! New Single, "Michigan" Out Now

Today, we are thrilled to announce that Chicago-born artist Tasha has signed to Bayonet Records! To mark the occasion she’s shared a video for her dynamic new single “Michigan.” Produced by Gregory Uhlmann, the single deals with the uncertainty of loss and faltering infatuation, as well as the steadfast solidity of love and pleasure. The artist’s familiar voice flutes over a dazzling, expansive jangle of guitar, indicating an evolution of sound from the quiet introspective of earlier music into something grander, more symphonic. “Michigan" is, in many ways, an auditory and artistic promise of the abundance to come.

Of the song, Tasha says “In October of 2022 I took myself on a writing trip to a friend's house in Michigan. The little dog I shared with my girlfriend at the time had just died, and the trip was both lonely and extremely creatively fulfilling. I wrote this song near the end of that trip, sitting on the deck, facing the trees and the sky, communing with the birds and other small wildlife. This song is about the missing and the return; the reliable comfort of a sunset on a nice day, a friend to sit with, and the shining hope of more comfort to come. Don’t you feel pretty in this fading light?

The last few years have been a time for transition and flourishing for Tasha. Since the 2021 release Tell Me What You Miss The Most, the musician has supported nation-wide tours with artists like Nilüfer Yanya and Margaret Glaspy. In 2023, she was tapped to join the cast of Illinoise, a Tony-nominated Broadway musical that adapts Sufjan Stevens’ seminal album, Illinois, for the stage.
