Shortly originated as a solo musical project belonging to Detroit native Alexandria Maniak. With roots in classical piano, a few years in punk, indie-acoustic and an ear in pop music it's a clash of many years of genre
study and influence. The project’s debut EP Richmond is threaded by vulnerability and consequence, enlightened by circumstance and curated by honest ,earnest reflection.
In just 2 short years, Shortly has toured with The Wonder Years, Mom Jeans, and Chloe Moriondo, shared stages with Mitski, Japanese Breakfast,
Title Fight, Phoebe Bridgers, PUP, Foxing, and The Decemberists, and performed at Mo Pop Festival, BLED FEST, and Do Division Street Fest.
