This Southern Oregon native brings a soulful flavor to the folk/americana scene in North America! With prolific lyrics and sweet melodies Michelle Bellamy is a delight to listen to. Surrounded by a large musical family in Oregon, Michelle easily gains influence from the pool of talent she's immersed in. Bellamy's voice is her strong point with a timbre similar to Norah Jones. Michelle pulls from all sorts of styles of music but her music can be likened to Bonnie Raitt, an edgier Joan Baez, Paul Simon or Ray LaMontagne.
Michelle Bellamy's main focus is creating community! Every month she hosts a benefit concert called The Rogue Fam Jam. Michelle coordinates a wide range of local musicians to come jam music and help raise fruition for a different local non-profit. Over the last 2 years Michelle has helped raise over $20,000 for different local non-profits in the Southern Oregon area. Michelle is continuing to host these jams and is anticipating taking the jam on the road to connect with other communities to help raise funds needed in those areas.
Michelle is often graced on stage with the presence of Mikey Stevens, a proficient guitarist and trumpet master. The instrumentation that Mikey adds to Michelle's stories fill out her sound and gives great breath to her songs. Michelle often plays with other musicians as well and is currently building a band.
Bellamy's newest Album Teaser "Sorrow's Delight" has been exciting fans and anticipating them about the completion of her next album. Look out for upcoming shows from Michelle Bellamy and Come Folk Out with her and her new developing band!
