THANK YOU so much for making our 8th annual benefit concert the best ever. We SOLD OUT again and helped ExtraFood.org get some much needed food to those in need. Everyone had a good time, enjoyed a respite from the stress of 2016 and helped a worthy cause while listening to some holiday music, all picked from my four Holiday CD’s: Christmas Gifts, Another Christmas Story, To Remember You, and Christmas on Pine Mountain. The profits from these four records will go to Extrafood.org.
Save the date December 7, 2017 for our 9th annual holiday concert at 142 Throckmorton Theatre, Mill Valley CA.
You can tune into Michelle at the Michelle Schmitt Holiday station on Pandora as well. ”’Tis the season”.
On April 20th, 2014, 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). Please join me in doing this in memory of Paul.
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.
So much has happened this year and so many more adventures are to be had! Spending time with my little granddaughter Charlee has brought great joy to my life — she is magical in every way. The band and I recorded a new record for our annual benefit concert. I produced two new records! San Francisco AM Sessions is a collection of my more mellow favorite original songs and San Francisco PM Sessions are some upbeat original favorites. 100% of proceeds from these CDs will support the Shanti Project in San Francisco. I went to Paris for my annual trip and it was WONDERFUL! Then on to New York, Hawaii with plans for my beloved hometown Detroit in the New Year, as well as Montreal, Toronto and Africa…all in the first half of 2017.
