“The kind of singer and songwriter who can jolt things into overdrive.” NEW YORK TIMES
“raucous and jubilant – somewhere between Lucinda Williams and Shelby Lynne comes Malone alternating between soulful ballads and rowdy, riffy blasters.” ROLLING STONE “Equal parts guitar slinger and sweet songstress, with masterful lyrical introspection – sublime to raucous.” GUITAR WORLD” 4 out of 5 Bunnies ” Malone churns up those Southern roots with the vigor of Lucinda Williams while embracing her inner Keith Richards.” PLAYBOY
Michelle Malone defies easy description. Wild-haired Rock God, political singer/songwriter, passionate performer with roots in church music–no single characterization tells the whole story. Over the course of Malone’s decades-spanning career, she’s collaborated with artists from Steve Earle to ZZ Top, released more than a dozen records and gone indie when it still took guts. Equal parts badass guitar slinger and sweet songstress, Michelle Malone artfully balances her penchant for ripping it through the roof with masterful lyrical introspection and vocals that range from sublime to raucous.
Malone has collaborated with artists from the late Gregg Allman to Steve Earle, ZZ Top, and The Indigo Girls. Known for her explosive live performances, she has graced stages in Germany, France, Switzerland, Mexico, and Australia and has performed in every state in the US.
On her new release, the self-produced “Slings, and Arrows”, Michelle was inspired but not happy about current events and relationships. She was on a tear to write and record (which she did in five days.) On this disc, she wears vulnerability on her sleeve by battling hardships and situations she’s encountered. and the way she’s learned how to cope, handle and overcome by self-acceptance.
“Slings & Arrows” will be released on Malone’s indie label SBS Records on March 2, 2017.
