The O&W Acoustic Stage
Effervescent and ebullient pop songs influenced by jazz and soul open the acoustic stage. The wonderfully talented Farmington Hills teen Sami Mei began learning piano and guitar when she was eight and counts among her influences Elton John and Charlie Parker. Now 16, she has two EPs of original songs, including Puppets, that she recorded with professional musicians backing her at Pearl Sound Studios in Canton. She has also made solo appearances around Metro Detroit, gracing markets, coffeehouses, and charity events Her beautiful tone and effortless delivery will enchant everyone relaxing in The Grove.
