SAMI's own MJ Bishop set to perform at the
2012 Uptown Jazz & Blues Festival
Acoustic Jazz & Blues
A native daughter of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, and a 30 year resident in Seattle, MJ recently moved to Nashville Tennessee to begin work on her fourth album. A highly acclaimed acoustic solo artist, MJ’s music is described as open-road longing folk Americana, and she has been rightfully compared to Emmylou Harris and Gillian Welch. Combining deep roots in acoustic music with a maturing country sensibility, MJ has fashioned a genre that has become her own.
MJ received top honors in the Blooming-Tunes songwriting competition for her song Up North, honorable mention from American Songwriter Magazine Lyric Contest for her song Hobo Dreams, honorable mention from Nashville Demo Studio Annual Songwriters Competition for her song This Way & That, and her latest CD, Pull of the Moon, was chosen as Notable Northwest Recording by Christine Linde, Americana Music Director, KBCS FM of Mid-North Indiana)
