"Another testament to Malone's Gritty, lean, well written rock. She has the soul of a folk singer, the heart of a bluesman, and the guts of a rock and roll star all wrapped up in one fiery bad ass." - The Nashville Rage
Out of the Atlanta folk rock cauldron, Michelle began her recording career in 1986 coming up in the music scene with such illuminaries as The Black Crowes, Indigo Girls, Drivin' N Cryin', Collective Soul, and Shawn Mullins.
She is considered by Amy and Emily to be the third member of their band. Though she has never been satisfied with sticking to either folk or rock exculsively. She rocks when she wants, plays searing guitar solo's when she needs, and her vocals soar and rip through the atmosphere. This CD is a must have for any Malone fan and a good introductory CD for those not as familiar with her.
