Dallas-reared Michelle Miears, 29, has made a name for herself in Houston as a member of electronic trio BLSHS, who’ve released two EPs and played big-name festivals like Summer Fest. But while the band is on a short hiatus, she’s been focusing on her solo project, Miears. Her five-track debut Who Will Save You? — which she wrote, recorded and produced herself — dropped in February, and is making waves with its lush, introspective tracks. “It’s all about my tortured little soul,” she says with an ironically big smile. The album title comes from the third song, a heartfelt track about the Montgomery County Animal Shelter, where Miears, who adopted a toy poodle named Bootsy, volunteers on Sundays. “I always try to focus on the positive,” she adds.


Miears’ solo-project debut was inspired by “real emotions from past relationships,” she says. “I can put a name to each song. But I won’t.” She wears rhodium diamond long drop earrings, $19,250, at Deutsch & Deutsch; diamond snake ring, $4,765, at Zadok Jewelers.
