In Loving Memory of Paul Tyler

paul-tylerOn April 20th I lost my dear friend, fellow musician and one of the best guys I know, to a long battle with cancer. He leaves behind a loving wife, a young son and many friends. 100% of the proceeds of Covering Life – the album I worked on with Paul – will go directly into The Noah Tyler College Fund (for Paul’s son).  I will also be gathering many of his other musician friends for the benefit concert. Please keep an eye out for details.

VIDEO: Michelle performs Messages live at the Passage du Grand Cerf at lunchtime in Paris

Thanks to my art director, Molly Tuttle, who sprung this iPhone video shoot on me when we walked in for what, I thought, was a photo shoot. The first thing we saw when we walked in was a beautiful Parisian flower shop called MESSAGES… Molly and I took it as a sign!

Messages is Here!

Messages, features lush orchestral arrangements which incorporate a blend of rock, Americana and a hint of Middle Eastern sounds that are the background for Michelle’s original songs and beautiful vocals.

Oh, and check out my incredible band…

Notes from Michelle…

w-paul-bwI am at Pine Mountain Studio in Alexander Valley wearing the hoodie with the logo Paul Tyler designed, sitting with lots of memories of my dear friend who passed away Easter Sunday after a long and brave battle with cancer. We made a great record in this studio and spent 10 days recording with Paul…
