GROUND UP SHOWCASE: Mimi Holland, Detail Time, Jesse Lauren

  • Uncommon Ground (Lakeview) 3800 North Clark Street Chicago, IL, 60613 United States (map)

Uncommon Ground’s GROUND UP SHOWCASE is a monthly event, featuring the very best emerging local talent, hand picked from our weekly open mic competitions!

The July Ground Up Showcase will feature Mimi Holland, Detail Time, and Jesse Lauren.



Mimi Holland sings and plays songs from the American Songbook. She particularly likes the sad ones. Aaron Mix builds, fixes, and plays guitars.


The Artist Known As Detail Time performs hip-hop, folk, and blues music in which he produces, writes, and records in his home studio in collaboration with artists, musicians, and supporters around the World. Detail Time is a self taught musician from Dayton, Ohio who, despite growing up in a predominantly hip-hop and R&B listing, African American Home, ended up idolizing Bob Dylan as his inspiration for creating Freedom Fighting music.


A year ago, after three months of almost monk-like silence, Jesse Lauren found her voice again. With that came the decision to leave her then-home of Madrid for Chicago, where she now resides and teaches Spanish. In her music you can hear notes of her upbringing in Ireland and Spain, with a touch of soul and an introspective bent.
