Chris Bathgate is a singer-songwriter from the Ann Arbor area. He began his musical career in a metal band, but soon after changed styles to a more folk song with poetic lyrics style that helps to highlight the dude’s raspy, striped-down voice. His music is often compared to other folk singers like Sufjan Stevens or Father John Misty. Bathgate has broken the Michigan scene and is starting to gain national attention. He was even featured on an episode of NPR’s highly regarded Tiny Desk Concert. Bathgate will also be joined by the band Bear Medicine, who probably play some kind of updated folk-rock.
