Music. For Michelle, it was just “always there”. Growing up within a fairly tumultuous childhood, music became an early means of expression and escape. A go-to place where anything was possible. Michelle and her sister began writing and performing songs for their neighbours and friends, when they were very young. In Grade School, Michelle found an additional creative outlet in the theatre.
Her first role on stage in Grade Three, was in The Wizard of Oz. It was an instant addiction, which propelled her into becoming heavily involved in theatre, as well as acting for TV, film and commercials. She performed in numerous stage productions, of which some of her favourites were Death of a Salesman, The Odd Couple, Time and the Conways and Love Sex & The I.R.S.
She also landed roles in the TV shows Paranormal Witness, Instant Cash and Motives & Murders. Experiencing a deep love for acting and the theatre, but missing her musical roots, she joined the Grindstone Blues Band in 2012, as the lead singer, until the group disbanded in early 2015. Along with Dave and Andy of G.B.B., it was decided that an exciting new band was just around the corner, waiting to be formed. Now she is thrilled to bring you a fresh, sexy, sassy take, on some of the most dynamic early blues numbers, with the Dirty Blues Band. Let’s Get Dirty!
