MP3 Michal the Girl - Tongue Tied
"sassy, sugared, alterna-pop temper tantrums" (The Village Voice)
14 MP3 Songs
POP: Power Pop, ROCK: Modern Rock
Michal is a GIRL. Let''s just get that straight.
Michal the Girl is a five foot nothing kewpie doll with attitude, who packs a powerful voice in her tiny frame strong enough to blow your hair backwards. Blending the sounds of Blondie, Belly and a UK rock crunch, Michal the Girl writes sassy alterna-pop tunes laced with catchy melodies, stinging sarcasm and a wee bit of anger for good measure.
Don''t let those big eyes fool you. This girl''s got bite!
"This young New Yorker has pop on the brain and her thoughtful, foot-tapping tunes rock with a Mary Tyler Moore you''re gonna make it after all uplift."-CMJ

- "MaryAnn", a co-written song from Michal''s now defunct side-project called "Kisser", was licensed as the soundtrack to a commercial for Japan''s #1 women''s fashion magazine, "Can Cam Magazine". Then Michal the Girl was flown to Japan in January 2004 to be IN the second commercial for "CanCam", again featuring "MaryAnn". That''s right: not only was Michal the Girl''s song the music in the commercial, but then she was flown to Tokyo to be in the commercial too! How friggin'' cool is that?? This commercial has been very popular and now everyone in Japan can sing along to "MaryAnn".
- two (2) songs on the CBC Television series "Black Harbour".
