American Singer/Songwriter Michelle Lewis

Michelle Lewis writes happy songs that bring tears, and sad songs that evoke smiles. Her music is rich with melody, and her lyrics seek beauty in the face of sadness. Too refined to call folk and too personal to call pop, as a singer/songwriter Michelle's music is uniquely intimate, and surprisingly polished. As a storyteller, she writes intensely visual songs that explore the emotional remainders in burgeoning and breaking relationships.
Michelle Lewis picked up her father's acoustic guitar at the age of 14 and quickly abandoned interest in everything else. She honed her songwriting at Berklee College of Music in her hometown of Boston, and went on to tour the United States behind her first album, This Time Around (2004). She has been a long time collaborator with producer Anthony J. Resta (Elton John, Duran Duran, Shawn Mullins). Their work has included the release of her Broken (2009) and Paris (2011) EPs, and most recently her second full-length album, The Parts Of Us That Still Remain (2014), with songs co-written by Nashville favorite Robby Hecht and LA sound designer Conan Skyrme.
