From LaBrie’s farm in Nebraska, Michilli’s home in Motor City and Otteson’s Portland paradise, “United By Song,” consists of three very different women with two things in common: they are singer-songwriters and they all now reside in the heart of Tennessee.
LaBrie said, “Music City has a powerful energy. It connects complete strangers by building communities of singers, songwriters and creatives. It doesn’t matter where you’re from, when you meet another artist, your soul instantly feels connected. That’s the magic of Nashville and we want to share it with the Northwest.”
LaBrie and Michilli met at a show in East Nashville, of which LaBrie said, “I just fell in love with her voice and spirit. I just knew we would become collaborators and now I’m thankful to call her a good friend. This will be our fourth tour together and I know for sure it won’t be our last.”
Otteson said, “The first time I heard Alicia and Shannon sing, I knew we had something good! Goosebumps good!”
All three women have joined forces this summer to unite genre, voice, spirit and experience. They will be performing “In The Round,” which is a traditional style of performing in Nashville.
The show will combine Americana, bluegrass and Motown styles of music, which is enough to keep most people’s attention, but the real win will be hearing the women sing together in three-part harmony.
With songs that unfold with style and subtlety, they don’t shy away from elaborating and telling the story behind the music. You will hear songs about caregiving, love, addiction, pies, and friendship, and, they insist, “lots of jokes, it’s a good time!”
LaBrie, received her first songwriting Grammy nomination last year with her song “Got Soul,” which she co-wrote on Robert Randolphs’ Grammy-nominated album for Best Contemporary Blues Album.
Michilli, was the semi-finalist on “America’s Got Talent,” which made Howard Stern one of her biggest fans.
Otteson, has released her first single and was chosen out of hundreds to sit down with Grammy award-winner Reba McEntire and discuss Emily’s talent, all while sitting on the renowned Ryman Stage.
