After a psychotic episode and a break-up from his label, 23-year-old Las Vegas singer-songwriter Shamir had considered quitting music altogether. Instead, he recorded 2017’s Hope over a weekend and released it via Soundcloud. And after his bipolar diagnosis, he spent the next two weeks recording Revelations — an appropriately named new start for the androgynous disco-house singer. Shamir, whose stylistic tendencies lean toward pop diva and early Michael Jackson, has found a sweet spot that is bound to get sweeter and a whole lot more real.

Shamir will perform at El Club on Friday, Dec. 8; 4114 W. Vernor Hwy., Detroit; 313-279-7382; elclubdetroit.com; show starts at 8 p.m.; tickets are $15 in advance, $18 day of show.
