Michelle Branch Biography
There is so much pre-fab, pre-packaged musical fiction going on these days, that it's a blessing and a relief to discover a young artist who was born to share her old soul. "There's a love affair going on," Michelle says, "between me and music." Nobody cranks out stacks of obvious, lifeless lyrics for Michelle Branch. There's no one telling the seventeen year old how to move, what to wear, or what to sing about. Nobody writes her songs for her. At a time when young people are force-fed so much pap-pop, Michelle's music is a deep breath of fresh honesty. As far back as she can remember, songs have always danced around in Michelle's head. When she picked up the guitar at 14, words and music tumbled out of her like she couldn't help it. Where does it come from? "I don't really know," Michelle says, amazed, "Music has always been in me. When I sing, I have a sense of peace, I feel like my brain turns off, and I become the core person of who I am -- the essence of me. I feel connected to whatever is out there. It's almost like I leave my body and get to watch."
