This will be my second year participating in DETROIT by DETROIT, and I couldn’t be happier. Last year, I teamed up with my good friend Omar Aragones to cover Mayer Hawthorne. Omar and I decided to do something a bit different this year; we plan on covering Detroit artist Sixto Rodriguez.

Dale Earnhardt Jr Jr

DETROIT PROUD: Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr.

Deciding to shine a Detroit Proud spotlight on Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr. was a no-brainer. The duo, comprised of Metro Detroit natives Joshua Epstein and Daniel Zott, have achieved national acclaim, yet still stay true to their roots right here in the D. In fact, a recent viral video features Josh and Daniel listing “Reasons Why Detroit Is Awesome” – which WE think is pretty…well…awesome.
