Michael-Ann / Bio

Michael-Ann started her musical journey at an early age. Her best memories are from visiting her friends musical family in the Ozarks of Missouri. It was there she learned to play guitar with strings 1/2" off the fret. (A painful but rewarding experience)! She would go every weekend and savor the flavor of down home hospitality and song. Each weekend included a musical performance with various members of the extended family. She then decided she wanted to dip her toes in the waters of Nashville. Several record labels were interested in her music; but she chose to travel overseas first to broaden her life experience. Since returning to the States, she has performed in various productions including: New York's "Woody Guthrie's American Song"- (a touring show about the life of Woody Guthrie), and has had featured original music in the play: "Sweet Bye and Bye". Now living in L.A., she treasures her musical roots, and has sung with the likes of: Ricky Skaggs, The Rainmakers, the Ravens, and has been heard singing on several music compilations. Michael ann has played LIVE at various venues nationally including: Opening for Paula Nelson in Kansas City, Opening for Joan Osborne at The Canyon Club, Opening for Blake Shelton at The Santa Clarita Performing Arts Center, The Coach House (opening for James McMurtry), Opening with RJ Chesney for Victoria Williams, The Hotel Cafe, The Viper Room, Ranch Party, Viva Cantina,The Cat Club, Room 5, The Bel Age, Tangier, The Derby, The Gig, 14 Below, Liquid Lounge, Genghis Cohen, and other reputed clubs. She is looking forward to opening for Mark Chesnutt at the end of November 2013, and Don McLean in December. She has not forgotten her roots, and is truly grateful for each and every chance to share her music...
