Michelle Anthony

Blessed with a commanding voice reminiscent of Chrissie Hynde, Kansas City native Michelle Anthony offers a bluesy take on alt-country, full of cynical wit and post-relationship regret. Now residing in Austin and finishing up her sophomore effort, Anthony's mix of urban soul and rural twang should appeal to fans of Tift Merritt and Bonnie Raitt alike. Songs like "Radio Waves" and "Analog Feeling" are gutsy appraisals of lost innocence cast against hard-charging, country-flavored R&B. Equally adept at somber ballads (the ironically non-clichéd "Mourning Song"), Michelle Anthony is the cute female unconsumed with her own beauty or celebrity, a woman content to let her guitar and guts do the talking.
