Michelle Cross -featured on podcast #5

  • LINK to podcast #5: "New Betty's on the Block"

  • I came upon Michelle Cross by accident on the net earlier this year, had downloaded the tracks available on her website, and have been listening to them over and over again ever since...I have an extensive mp3 library in itunes and very few artists have so many highly-rated songs in my database.

    Like so many others out there, Tori Amos is an icon of individuality, passion and female strength. Michelle Cross should be very likable to any Tori fans out there... not merely because she is a wild pianist and vibrant woman, but because she possesses her own unique-ness. Her lyrics possess many creative and colorful turns of phrase; her playing and singing are unbridled and innocent at the same turn.

    Her songs are catchy, with twirling hooks and quiet nooks...she sounds familiar, as if she's been hidden in my subconscious for a decade...maybe that is because she reminds me of Tori --- but in a really, really original way, okay??

    Check out a few of these free and legal tracks from her webpage...AND IF YOU LIKE IT, BUY IT!!!

    First let me say that, on behalf of Michelle and, thanks for the write up and sharing of her music. Especially in such a positive and professional (by way of linking back to the site) way.

    Secondly, I love your site. It's very grand yet personal.
