Michaela Slinger


After her debut LP ‘Panorama’ (604 Records) received US and CAN radio play, a #2 peak on Stingray Indie, and her first festival stage performances, Vancouver-born Michaela Slinger followed a gut feeling to leave her comfort zone. Her new sophomore album ‘This Can’t Last Forever’ was written between Vancouver, Nashville, Los Angeles, and Toronto, where she found herself in writing rooms with collaborators like Khalid Yassein (Wild Rivers) and Ryan Stewart (Carly Rae Jepsen). Although she commands stages and studios like a seasoned pop star (including Breaking Sound LA and Toronto, Root Dwellers, Tiny Lights, and Laketown Shakedown), Michaela is arguably a singer-songwriter first, constantly delivering mind-bending melodies and lyrical singularity that defy categorization and have earned her Amazon's 'Fresh Folk and Acoustic' playlist cover and a home on SiriusXM's Poplandia 'About To Break' series.

The title ‘This Can’t Last Forever’ is ultimately a statement of fact—the sole, inescapable condition of living that Slinger works to accept on this record.
