Michelle Malone’s new acoustic folk CD, Acoustic Winter, hits the streets February 4th, and to celebrate The Michelle Malone Banned performs new songs and all your favorites — unplugged. Special guest Steed Kettles opens the show.
Atlanta native Michelle Malone is “equal parts badass guitar slinger and sweet songstress” (Guitar World). Her mastery of guitar along with her trademark voice and songwriting skills have earned her 3x Best Female vocalist, Best Acoustic Guitarist, Album of the year, and 2 grammy ballot appearances (Best Contemporary Blues 2006, Best Americana 2009). Her songs have appeared in film and TV, and have been recorded by Indigo Girls, Antigone Rising and Vistos Bosses.Malone is currently on tour in support of her most recent release, Day 2 (SBS Records)produced by fellow Atlantan and Grammy nominee Shawn Mullins. Day 2 is currently climbing the Americana radio charts and receiving critical success. Malone’s shows are “raucous and jubilant” (Rolling Stone). She is “the kind of singer and songwriter who can jolt things into overdrive”(New York Times). Fun facts – Malone appeared on the Grateful Dead tribute album Deadicated (Arista Records,1991), she was featured in a Georgia Tourism TV commercial with Elton John (1994), and the Collectible card game Magic: The Gathering was named in part for her song The Gathering (1992)!
In 2013, Michelle performed for TedX Peachtree, on Cayamo Music Cruise, had a Signature guitar slide modeled and named after her, made a new video for Other Girls (Day 2), was the keynote speaker at a high school graduation in SoCal, and finished recording her new CD called Acoustic Winter due out Feb 4th, 2014 - it sounds like beautiful folky pop heartbreak.
“Equal parts badass guitar slinger and sweet songstress, Malone artfully balances her penchant for ripping through the roof with masterful lyrical introspection – sublime to raucous.”
— GUITAR WORLD
“The kind of singer and songwriter who can jolt things into overdrive.”
— NEW YORK TIMES
“Raucous and jubilant – somewhere between Lucinda Williams and Shelby Lynne comes Malone alternating between soulful ballads and rowdy, riff-y blasters.”
— ROLLING STONE
