KEXPColors

DJ Michele Myers spins a party mix on KEXP Friday nights 9pm-12.

Michele’s inspiring, upbeat sets of soul, rock, pop and beats have rocked crowds across the country, as a radio host at KEXP in Seattle, WNYE in New York City, KALX at University of California Berkeley and at live events. Michele is a graduate of U.C. Berkeley. She grew up in Pennsylvania, California and Hawaii.

An avid music, art and community advocate, Michele’s mixed dance songs at Seattle Space Needle New Year’s Eve for KEXP, Seattle Art Museum, Chihuly Garden and Glass, The Crocodile, Nectar, Doe Bay Festival, Bumbershoot and more. She volunteers as live soundtrack for the ACLU of Washington, homeless youth and a variety of other charities.

Michele’s been interviewed as a music expert by Rolling Stone Magazine and The New York Times. She taught radio production and writing at Seattle’s Art Institute. Her book of advice for musicians “50 Tips for Artists in the Music Business” has gotten rave reviews from readers and critics. From 2005-2010 Michele and her team of stellar volunteers wrote and produced over 200 short KEXP Documentaries on musical subjects for KEXP and NPR/WNYE.

You can find Michele’s writing and radio stories featured at Mo’ Pop (writer/voice artist for Jimi Hendrix audio exhibit), University of Washington (class material “Blues for Hard Times”), the Frye Museum (“Masters of Turntablism” series) and the Smithsonian Institute (“American Sabor: Latinos in U.S. Popular Music”). This work and her DJing were featured in a CWTV Documentary called “Listen to This” and in 2017 the Seattle Channel’s Art Zone featured her in a TV episode on vinyl.

Michele curates her blog Soulful Alternative and was co-creator of KEXP hip-hop lesson plans for grades 6-12. She is currently a music writer/contributor for NPR.
