“Scrunched up messiness and euphoric, wide-eyed prettiness-
she’s all of that with the intensity of a snarling tiger for a soul.”
“This is a musician who has much to add to the world of music”

“Probably the most important artist you have not heard yet”

Rod Stewart famously sang about blondes having more fun, and Michele certainly has her audiences smiling. While her songwriting style reflects both late-seventies Punk and early-eighties New Wave, her primary influence is life itself; her lyrics poetically conveying the everyday agonies and ecstasies of the human condition she witnessed traversing the American hinterland playing out-of-the-way spit-and-sawdust dive bars and premiere venues alike, swiftly building up a loyal and dedicated world-wide fan base. She and her music have been featured on radio and podcasts in the U.S. as well as Radio One and Sky News in the UK and as far away as Greece. Right out of the gate Seattle-based music site The Wig Fits All Heads accurately and confidently proclaimed “Keep an eye out for this lady, she’s going places!”
Michele, a direct descendant of the tailor to the ill-feted Czar Nicholas II, has proved herself a cut above - receiving lavish praise for each of her three solo EP releases both in the U.S. and abroad. She is currently in pre-production on her fifth solo release having written and recorded music alongside renowned guitarist and songwriter, John Ashton, of The Psychedelic Furs fame. Along with John's guidance and genius, Michele's original music has been brought to life with the help of a transatlantic band made up of a who's who of musicians. In 2005 Indie-Music.com proclaimed her debut album 85th and Nowhere as “filling a void in today’s Top Ten, infusing it with some much needed sophistication and thoughtful song-crafting," a skill that has only grown and now culminated into what will be her finest release yet in 2019.
Such heady praise is wholly merited as Michele is imbued with a steely determination to continue forging her unique identity on an ever-changing musical landscape.
