Four teens share musical talents and tour the state

7&4 News Today continues its summer segment showcasing talented kids around Northern Michigan.

Academy Four

is a group of four teenagers who met at the Interlochen Arts Academy.

Taylor Fernandez, Elaina Burress, Savannah Buist and Katie Larson were all involved in the Singer Songwriter program at the school when they started writing songs together.

Academy Four just wrapped up a state-wide tour where they enjoyed 38 shows in 30 days. The girls said they learned a lot about the music industry and each other while spending so much time together in a camper! The group has several shows yet this summer, to find out more on upcoming events click on the
