Another Huge Holiday Success!

My 9th annual holiday benefit concert SOLD OUT again! is the recipient of this year’s proceeds. 100% of all ticket sales and CD sales will go to this amazing organization. My annual benefit concert, each December, has fed over 3 million people to date. The band and I are always happy to help you get into the holiday spirit. We introduced three new bandmates this year. The show was an acoustic show, very different from any show we’ve done so far, and I got back to my roots; to the folk rock music that made me want to make music so long ago.

And every year I put out a new holiday album to play at the concert. Check out this year’s release, JOY. With 100% all proceeds going to, this record will put you in the holiday spirit and also get food to people in need. On Michelle’s 5th holiday record, you will get a MODERN take on some of your favorite holiday classics as well as others that you haven’t heard before. Do your part for this great cause and enjoy!

Donate here if you couldn’t make the show!

Michelle’s New Album, Looking Back!

Looking Back is dedicated to my dear friend and band mate, Paul Tyler, who passed away in Spring of 2014. Paul is dearly missed by all of us who knew and loved him.  All proceeds from this album will go Paul’s son via the Noah Tyler College Fund. This record features another friend of Paul’s, Billy Shaddox, and we’ve included one of Eric Shea’s original songs to honor their deep friendship. My band mate and friend, Graham Patzner, is also featured on this record.  We hope you enjoy.

Michelle’s New AM/PM Sessions to Benefit the Shanti Project

I’ve produced two records to help raise money for another worthy organization, the Shanti Project. San Francisco AM Sessions is a collection of my more mellow favorite original songs and San Francisco PM Sessions are some upbeat original favorites. They make a nice gift set so think of them during the holidays.

Help the Shanti Project continue it’s good work. 100% of all proceeds of these two records will go to this long-time San Francisco institution, helping people suffering HIV/AIDS, cancer and other life-threatening illnesses. Now available!

And PLEASE check out my incredible band! It is such a pleasure to play with these guys. All are really great musicians and I feel blessed every time I am with my music family.
