Homegrown Residency at Uncommon Ground is a weekly residency offering emerging Chicago musicians a fertile bed to plant their roots and grow. Every Tuesday for one month, a new emerging band tests their new material, reveals their ongoing process and are joined by hand picked musical guests as listeners enjoy beer from Greenstar Brewery, the first all organic brewery in IL, and food from the first 4-star restaurant with a certified organic rooftop farm in the U.S. 10% of the proceeds go towards a non-profit organization chosen by the resident. This month, theycallmericky has chosen to support The Young Center for Immigrant Children’s Rights. Overall, “The Young Center is a champion for the best interests of children who arrive in the United States on their own, from all corners of the world. We serve as trusted allies for these children while they are in deportation proceedings, advocating for their best interests, and standing for the creation of a dedicated children’s immigrant justice system that ensures the safety and well-being of every child.”

ARACELI is an artist and creative. She appreciates the escapism created by music, acting and creating art. She has been writing songs since she was twelve years old but only recently used them as a form of a journal. She holds her taste in music near and dear to her heart and finds it to be the catapult to her creativity. Music is the constant in her life, it is in her thoughts, her dreams and in her choices. She has released an EP "We Think By Feeling", a single "In the End" and have been featured on songs.

Though singing since early adolescences, her first single "Roots" was released earlier this year, July of 2019. With inspiration from artists like Erykah Badu, Willow Smith, and Jorja Smith, Mariah incorporates the love of R&B with a hint of pop in expressing her day to day thoughts.
