Michelle Willson


Michelle is a force of nature - an emotional ball of blues talent that inspires with her original songs but also takes you on a journey through what she calls "the lost music" of vintage soul/R&B legends like Dinah Washington, Ruth Brown and Etta James. As she says, "They were all different, but the one thing they shared was intensity. And that's what I'm trying to bring, too."
