Michiko "Michi" Egger is a guitarist + composer based in New York City.
Michi is best known for her work in the musical theatre world. She began playing guitar professionally at the young age of 11, and has since graduated to playing theaters across the country for productions such as Broadway's The SpongeBob Musical 1st National Tour as guitar 1, subbing at Jagged Little Pill, and is currently the touring guitarist / broadway sub for the Tony award winning musical Hadestown.
In 2019, Michi was invited to play guitar/develop the guitar book for JEANNETTE, a new musical written by Ari Afsar (Hamilton) and Lauren Gunderson, directed by Erin Ortman, with music supervisors Mary-Mitchell Campbell and Meg Zervoulis.
Other notable guitar/backing vocals credits include: Andra Day (Lincoln Center), Betty Who + Garek (Pridefest) and a wide variety of Broadway heavy weights such as Julia Murney, Jessica Vosk, Joshua Henry, and Janet Decal to name a few.
Michi has four original solo albums in which she sings, plays guitar, and piano. Her song, “Glide Through the Flames”, can be heard in the independent BMX film, “Heroes of Dirt”. She also co-wrote the soundtrack for "The Day That She Died", a short film featured in film festivals in the US and Italy.
In 2020, Michi composed the film score for the feature film "Generation Wrecks" (Kevin t. Morales) from her home studio.
During the pandemic, Michi formed a new band called Sherryfraser with fellow songwriter Ericka Lindsey and drummer Noah Hadland (Waitress National Tour). Together they released their debut EP, Test the Water.
Michi is currently the guitarist for the Hadestown North American Tour as well as a Broadway sub. She is also a member of the creative team, as well as a featured artist and the guitarist for the new in-concert touring production of Many Messiahs, a reframing Handel's masterpiece as a collective call for justice.
