When Kirabelle Frabotta comes home this week to Michigan, it won't just be to say hello to friends and family over the holidays.
The Dearborn native singer/songwriter—now living and performing in Nashville—is performing Wednesday, Dec. 19, at the Pike Room of the Crofoot in Pontiac. The performance will celebrate her first solo EP release, Wildwood Flower, which she recorded this year in Tennesee.
Still, Michigan is home to Frabotta.
"I am so excited to have the release show in my home state," Frabotta said. "I have so much love for the Mitten."
Frabotta's other love—jazzy, elegant music punctuated by ukelele—can be heard in her latest record, including the topical hit 21st of December.
"I love music that is full of emotion, like jazz," Frabotta told EVOLve Nashville, an online independent magazine. "The '20s and '30s are my favorite because the music that came out of that time was so hot, fast and drippy."
Dearborn residents may have heard Frabootta before at the Ford Community and Performing Arts Center last February with the Dearborn Symphony Orchestra and Rich Ridenour; or at The Henry Ford, performing period songs with the Village Trio.
But now locals can hear her perform her own hits live.
