Sonic Lunch – the free, outdoor summer concert series at Liberty Plaza, on Liberty St. and Division in Ann Arbor, presented by Bank of Ann Arbor – has just announced its 2015 lineup, which includes “The Voice” superstars Michelle Chamuel and Joshua Davis; Børns; Martha Reeves; Theo Katzman and more.
… August 13th – Børns, with special guest Chris Bathgate
The nom de plume of singer/songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and Michigan native Garrett Borns, Børns crafts big-hearted, alternately dreamy and danceable, falsetto-driven electro-pop confections that have been dusted with glam rock and folk. Raised in the great lake coastal town of Grand Haven, Michigan, Børns studied music at the Interlochen Center for the Arts and Grand Rapids Community College while becoming a fixture in the local music scene. After a brief stint in New York City, Børns decided to relocate to Los Angeles, where he set up shop in a self-described “treetop sanctuary” just outside of the city, and began honing what would eventually become his debut EP, the Interscope-issued “Candy.” His new single “Electric Love” is on the Billboard Heatseekers chart and in rotation on every rock station in America.
