Michelle Malone’s musical roots run deep and wide like the mighty Mississippi river, twisting and turning through rock, blues, and Americana territory. Her music is influenced by the red dirt rhythms from her Georgia home – blues, soul and rock and roll. “Malone is a master at mixing blues and Americana music” (GUITAR PLAYER MAGAZINE). Over the course of Malone’s 25+ year career, she has shared stages with artists from Gregg Allman to Indigo Girls, Albert King to Mississippi All-Stars Luther Dickenson, Bon Iver to Brandi Carlile, released more than 15 records so far, and continues to gain respect from her peers. Her latest, Slings and Arrows, which debuted at #8 on the Billboard Blues charts, proves that her slide guitar chops are “outrageously good, a real revelation” (NO DEPRESSION). Her powerful live show will take you on a journey from dirty back roads of the deep slow south to frantic bright city lights, regardless of whether she’s performing solo or armed with her electric guitar and her mighty fine band. Michelle “has the soul of a bluesman, the heart of a folk singer, and the guts of a rock and roll star wrapped up in one fiery bad ass” (NASHVILLE RAGE), and she’s “uniquely able to blow the roof off the place then turn right around and whisper a soft song that will break your damn heart” (PASTE). Her live shows are upbeat and jubilant, engaging and satisfyingly soul stirring, flush with the raw energy and emotion that’s always been a part of her signature sound.
