The Dacia Bridges Project is described as one of “Kalamazoo’s Finest Female Musicians” and includes:


Dacia Bridges- lead vocal, guitar, songwriter

Cori Beth Somers- violin

Carolyn Koebel- drums & percussion

Sarah Halsey Fuerst- bass


Dacia Bridges is a powerhouse vocalist cited by some as reminiscent of Tina Turner, as well as an accomplished songwriter and performer. From the age of five on she has been gracing the stage not only as a singer, but also as a professional dancer, choreographer and model. She recently relocated to the United States after spending decades performing to great acclaim in Germany and throughout Europe.

Dacia has teamed up with musicians Sarah Fuerst, Cori Somers and Carolyn Koebel to form The Dacia Bridges Project, an all-female quartet like no other!


Morgan Ingle is the lead singer for the very popular Slim Gypsy Baggage, as well as one of the ladies who make up the trio The Backups. Emma Hamel is an up and coming young musician who is already making a name for herself writing music and performing locally and beyond.
