THANK YOU for all your support. So far our concerts have made over 15,000 meals. The band and I had a blast, the audience sang their hearts out near the end of the show and everyone left with a little bit more love in their hearts. It feels good to make a difference and to have fun doing it! We look forward to seeing you next year in San Francisco. Look for a “save the date” sometime in early fall.
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,” 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…
In this episode of Stark Insider TV, Loni Stark visits the studio of musician Michelle Schmitt. Watch as they discuss the creative process, using music as an outlet for sorrow and grief, and the trials and tribulations of making it in an unapologetic industry.

As I write this I am sitting in St. Germain at the fountain in front of St. Sulpice, enjoying the beauty of Paris. I spent August at Pine Mountain Studio recording my latest record “Messages” with my most talented band. We will introduce the new record at our 5th annual Meals on Wheels SF Benefit Concert at the new SF Jazz Center.
