“The funny thing about New Orleans is here we have such a huge amount of local music that people get turned onto at a very young age,” says frontman John Michael Rouchell. “A lot of times we don’t listen to national music until you’re older.” The influence of the Big Easy can certainly be heard in MyNameisJohnMichael’s music. The group boasts both the sounds of an indie rock act and a brass band, blending the two to create a live act that pays homage to the city’s musical legacy while sounding decidedly modern.

Watch MyNameIsJohnMichael perform “Character Piece” at the Sennheiser & Paste Present the Stages on Sixth.
